David Ortiz to Be Out for 2-3 Weeks

Andy KellyContributor IJune 4, 2008

With a partially torn tendon in his left wrist, the Sox's slugger will hopefully return in about two-and-a-half weeks. Right now, Ortiz remains hopeful that he will be back to playing after a little rest and a 15 day disabled list stint.

Ortiz injured his wrist while batting a few games ago.

However, with Ortiz's injury, a spot opened up for Chris Carter, a guy that has hit five homers in his last 10 contests. The Sox have already had to alter their lineup with Ortiz out.
