FORT MYERS, Fla. -- David Ortiz was scheduled to work out Tuesday morning but a determination on whether he was going to take batting practice hadn't been made.
"He's in the workout room, going through his normal program," Farrell said. "We'll find out a little bit later if he's going to swing the bat. That's kind of a day-to-day thing. We'll go on his tolerance, so that's to be determined later this morning.
"I think more than anything, David doesn't want to experience another setback. So as he goes through his daily work, we're going to do some things based on his tolerance level and proceed accordingly."
- Outfielder Mitch Maier, who made a diving catch in Sarasota last Friday and rolled his left wrist in the process, has what Farrell termed "a pretty severe sprain" of the wrist, an MRI showed.
"He'll be in a splint for this next week," said. Farrell. "Our approach with him is going to be to assess every week. Once he comes out of the splint, we'll see where he's at -- whether that means a repeat of the MRI or just symptoms in terms of strength or range of motion. He could go back in the splint for another week or he could begin to undergo some baseball activity, based on his tolerance.
"But he sprained it pretty good the other day."
- The Sox will hold off on their next round of roster cuts until after the team travels to Tampa to play the Yankees Wednesday.
