David Ortiz limps off after fouling ball off right shin

The Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox star David Ortiz left Wednesday night's game against the New York Yankees in pain after fouling a pitch off his right shin.

Boston said X-rays were negative.

The 40-year-old designated hitter, who has announced he will retire after this season, fouled a 98.5 mph fastball from Dellin Betances off the shin in the ninth inning and was replaced by pinch-hitter Bryce Brentz, who struck out.

Ortiz grimaced and started hopping on the foot, then dropped to one knee. When he arose, Ortiz bent over in pain for an extended period.

Ortiz draped his right arm over manager John Farrell and his left over physical therapist Adam Thomas as he walked very slowly off the field and down the dugout steps.

In his 20th major league season, Ortiz is hitting .307 with 25 homers and 88 RBIs.
