It's speculated that Ortiz is asking for a two-year extension totaling between $25 million and $30 million.

Ortiz was one of the Red Sox's most dependable players during a tumultuous 2012 season that included a blockbuster, payroll-clearing trade of Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez and Nick Punto to the Dodgers, and the firing of manager Bobby Valentine after one season. Ortiz hit .318 with 23 home runs and 60 RBIs in 90 games in a season cut short by a right Achilles tendon injury and ultrasound treatment.
