It was just two short weeks ago that, based on a report from ESPN Boston’s Gordon Edes, a David Ortiz contract extension seemed as good as done. Only the terms remained undecided as both parties clearly wanted to ink a two-year deal.

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz is heading back to the Disabled List after re-aggravating his Achilles injury Friday night against the Kansas City Royals. Ortiz, who recorded two hits in his return to the lineup, still hopes to return this season. Manager Bobby Valentine commented on the possibility of seeing Ortiz back on the lineup card in 2012.

The eight time All-Star and pending free agent has a .318/.415/.611 slash line this year with 23 home runs in 90 games. Outfielder Ryan Kalish was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket.
