Ortiz will speak Saturday

David Ortiz and incoming Major League Players Association director Michael Weiner will address the media before Saturday’s game at Yankee Stadium regarding last week’s report that Ortiz failed a test in 2003 for performance-enhancing drugs, according to MLBPA spokesman Greg Bouris.

Earlier today, there was a report and persistent rumors that Ortiz would talk to reporters this afternoon, but that turned out not to be the case.

Editor’s note: Due to a miscommunication, we earlier reported that Ortiz was speaking on Friday. That was incorrect.
