Red Sox lineup: David Ortiz will sit Tuesday against Athletics
|04.23.13 at 3:21 pm ET|
David Ortiz, who went 1-for-4 with a double and a walk on Monday but appeared to hobble from home to second and then from second to home on a Mike Napoli double in the second inning, is out of the Red Sox lineup against the A’s and Bartolo Colon on Tuesday night at Fenway Park. However, it’s worth noting that Ortiz has struggled in his career against Colon, hitting just .130 with a .200 OBP and .217 slugging mark in 50 career plate appearances against him. With Ortiz out of the lineup, Jonny Gomes (.385/.429/1.000 against Colon) is slated to serve as DH.
