David Ortiz, Buy this Fantasy Baseball Masher for the 2nd Half in Head to Head Leagues

David Ortiz (pictured 2007 Upper Deck Spectrum baseball card) has had a rough year for the Red Sox. It started out with a horrid April and was followed up by a wrist injury. While swinging at a pitch, Ortiz tore the sheath on a tendon in his wrist – that just sounds nasty.

After a successful batting practice on Friday David Ortiz is poised to begin a minor league rehab assignment and should return shortly after the all star break. They think he’ll be fine down the stretch and with the Red Sox in the hunt for another World Series they’re likely to ride him fairly hard.

I do think it could take about 100 at bats for Ortiz to find his stroke again but if you’re in a head to head fantasy baseball league that shouldn’t be a problem – should find his groove just in time for the playoffs. In his final 200 at bats I could see David Ortiz hit better than .290 with 12-15 home runs, 35-40 runs and 40 or so RBIs. Now is the perfect time to ad Ortiz for the stretch run.
