David Ortiz blasts Red Sox over contract status

It’s no secret Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz has has been unhappy about his contract status after settling for a one-year deal last offseason. Before Wednesday’s game, in which Ortiz slugged his 400th career home run, he told USA Today’s Jorge Ortiz in an extensive Spanish-language interview that he feels “humiliated” and “embarrassed” about his contract situation.

The Red Sox’ designated hitter hit .309 with 29 homers and 96 RBIs last season, but the newly positioned Sox general manager, Ben Cherington, opted against signing Ortiz to a multi-year contract. Instead, he offered Ortiz arbitration. They agreed to a one-year, $14.575 million deal, a $2.025 million raise from the year before.
