David Ortiz ‘frustrated’ going on disabled list

Designated hitter David Ortiz, sporting a walking boot, strolled into the clubhouse before Thursday night’s game against the White Sox and expressed his frustration over having to go on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right Achilles’ tendon.

“Of course, I want to be on the field, like usual,’’ Ortiz said. “But those things I can’t really control. That’s part of it. I’m a little frustrated, I’m not going to lie to you, especially with having some guys coming back and the way things are going.’’
