Ortiz Might Rest Tonight

David Ortiz, mired in a 3-for-43 slump (.070), might not play tonight.

Terry Francona, before yesterday's game:
I don't feel that way right now. If I did, I'd do it. He's still a pretty good presence.
Francona, after the game:
That's actually a possibility. We'll see. A day where maybe he can do some physical things but keep his mind free.
Ortiz is in an 0-for-17 slide. ... He had a similar 0-for-17 stretch from August 16-21, 2004.

Also wonder if we'll see Lowrie at all tonight.
