Red Sox shut down DH Ortiz for several days with sore heel, beat Rays 6-2

The Boston Red Sox will shut down designated hitter David Ortiz for several days with sore left heel, announcing the news after Sunday's 6-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Manager John Farrell received the MRI results during the game. He expects Ortiz to be out for five to seven days because of inflammation.

Ortiz had MRI tests done on both heels Saturday for comparative purposes. The eight-time All-Star is still making his way back from a strained right Achilles tendon that limited him to 90 games last season.

David Ross hit a three-run homer for Boston and John Lackey allowed two runs and four hits in 3 2-3 innings.
