Report: David Ortiz Expected To Return To Boston

Free agent David Ortiz is expected to return to the Boston Red Sox “one way or another” a Red Sox source told ESPN today.

"We offered him arbitration and that's significant because he has a decision to make on that on Wednesday if we don't reach an agreement before then," Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington told ESPN last Thursday. "We had continued good dialogue."

The designated hitter, who reportedly would like to stay in Boston, would have to accept salary arbitration by Wednesday’s midnight deadline, or come to terms on an agreement with the Red Sox on what is expected to be a two-year deal.

Ortiz hit .309/.398/.544 with 29 home runs and 96 RBIs in 2011, his ninth-year with the Red Sox.
