Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was released from Massachusetts General Hospital this morning, according to Red Sox spokesman John Blake. Ortiz had been undergoing a battery of tests on his heart after feeling a recurrence of palpitations.
"David Ortiz is in the process of undergoing further testing to determine the cause of his symptoms," Red Sox medical director Thomas Gill said in a statement yesterday. "The testing and evaluation will continue throughout the remainder of this afternoon and evening. David will remain in the hospital Wednesday night. He is resting comfortably and is in good spirits."
According to the Associated Press, Blake had no further information on Ortiz's condition.
