Rutledge headed to 7-day DL

The Red Sox announced a series of moves on Saturday, which included placing INF Josh Rutledge on the seven-day concussion disabled list. Boston also added RHP Doug Fister to the roster, optioning Hector Velazquez to Triple-A Pawtucket, and selected the contract of Tzu-Wei Lin from Double-A Portland. To make room for Lin, Brock Holt (vertigo) was transferred to the 60-day DL.

Papi en la discusión de mejor Medias Rojas de la historia

Ted Williams puede ser el mejor bateador. Pedro Martínez y Roger Clemens los mejores lanzadores. Babe Ruth el jugador más famoso. Pero muy probablemente David Ortiz ha sido el jugador más importante de los Medias Rojas.

Red Sox 9, Angels 4: Hanley Ramirez picked a perfect way to pay tribute to David Ortiz. Ramirez belted a two-run homer in the fourth inning and Sandy Leon added a two-run shot in the sixth to lift the Red Sox to a series-opening victory after retiring Ortiz's No. 34. But the most encouraging development for the Sox was the performance of Rick Porcello, who tossed six strong innings before allowing three runs in the seventh.

Ortiz's 34 joins pantheon of Red Sox greats

David Ortiz, eight months after playing his final game, had his No. 34 retired by the Red Sox in a ceremony before the opener of a three-game series against the Angels.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

David Ortiz says he has been in touch with ex-teammates but has intentionally avoided coming around the Red Sox's clubhouse because he doesn't want to be in the way. He knew his retirement would impact the team and didn't want to be a distraction.
