Ortiz in the lineup

David Ortiz, who banged a ball off his right knee last night, is in the lineup tonight. Ortiz revealed last night that he has been playing with a torn meniscus in the knee. He did not speak with the media before batting practice. We’ll see if he talks when the clubhouse reopens.

Also, stay tuned for an update from Amalie Benjamin on the status of Curt Schilling, who threw today.
