Ortiz (illness) scratched from Pawtucket start

David Ortiz was scratched from his rehab assignment game today at Triple A Pawtucket due to illness.

Ortiz has played in two games for the Paw Sox, going 3 for 7 with three RBIs. Red Sox manager John Farrell said this morning that the designated hitter was doing well with his strained right Achilles tendon.

Ortiz is expected to get 20-30 plate appearances before rejoining the Red Sox.
