Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine told WEEI’s “The Big Show” that David Ortiz will be placed on the 15-day disabled list after a second opinion on his Achilles injury confirmed he will be unavailable for 10-14 days. The team will recall infielder Mauro Gomez from Triple-A.

Ortiz was injured Monday while rounding second base after an Adrian Gonzalez home run. On the season, the eight-time All-Star has 23 home runs and an impressive slash line of .316/.414/.609.
