It is expected that David Ortiz will re-join the Red Sox this Friday.

Ortiz's contract includes an interesting clause that allows his base pay to be increased by $2 million next year if he spends less than 20 days on the DL.

Friday would be day 20, so in order to remain eligible for the pay increase, he must be activated by then.
