David Ortiz is still recovering from his injured right Achilles tendon, but says he'll be ready for Opening Day.

The doctors say Im going to have my days Im not going to feel that well," Ortiz told Rob Bradford of weei.com. "I havent had those yet, but I havent started the hard stuff. But the one thing I can tell you is Im able to do the agility drills without any pain, which I wasnt able to do before, so thats a good thing. When I was injured those used to cause me a lot of pain, and I dont have any pain when I do them now . . .

I think everything is good, he said. Hopefully I dont have any setbacks, but right now everything is good.
