It may be too late to do the Red Sox much good, but barring a setback, David Ortiz is expected to come off the disabled list prior to Friday’s game, is reporting.

“It looked like David got through everything perfectly today,” manager Bobby Valentine. “Today was the day he was going to run the bases, which he hadn’t done yet. He had run sprints and has done other things. Today he ran the bases. We’ll see how he gets through it. If he gets through, we’re planning on hopefully activating him tomorrow.”

Ortiz has missed five weeks with a strained right Achilles’ tendon. The designated hitter was one of the game’s best hitters before going down, coming in at .316/.414/.609 with 23 homers through 320 at-bats.

    If Bayless wants a much easier target that will still get him buzz, he need look no further than David Ortiz.
