David Ortiz took batting practice on the field and then did some running drills in right field. He is making daily progress with his strained right Achilles tendon.

But when asked if he would be activated this weekend, Big Papi shook his head.

"No," he said. "Not yet."

Ortiz was feeling energetic enough to leap up the dugout stairs and photo bomb some fans on the field who were taking a picture. That was pretty funny.

Just a guess, but Ortiz will return Monday or Tuesday.
