Ortiz hopes to ‘get that engine going’ in rehab stint

April 11, 2013

PAWTUCKET – It was clear that David Ortiz was in no mood to stroll down memory lane.
Asked if he felt a touch of nostalgia upon returning to McCoy Stadium for the first time since the memorable three-game show he put on during the summer of 2008, the Red Sox slugger offered a wry smile. After being down for so long, it’s clear that Ortiz is using his rehab stint with the PawSox as a prime opportunity to make up for lost time.
“Been a while, huh? Yeah, man, just coming down here to get some at-bats and get that engine going,” said a succinct Ortiz.

Confident Iglesias keeps his head up with PawSox

April 11, 2013

PAWTUCKET — As if enough confidence wasn’t radiating from Jose Iglesias already, the shortstop was privileged enough to spend part of his Thursday afternoon with a noteworthy batting practice partner.
About two hours prior to first pitch, David Ortiz emerged from the clubhouse to get a few on-field swings. Fighting through the crowded wall of TV cameras and microphones, Iglesias had every intention of stepping in the cage the moment Ortiz needed a breather.
Iglesias may have been at McCoy Stadium, but it was clear that the big leagues were still on his mind.
