David Ortiz says he’s pain free

David Ortiz is on the comeback trail and says he no longer feels any pain in his achilles:

“I feel better today than days before,” Ortiz said Wednesday. “Hopefully, I will continue feeling better every day. We’ll see if I can go back into the fire … The doctor checked me out every day, and he found less tendinitis on my Achilles [today], so that’s good.”

That’s good news, but it may be premature. Because “into the fire” means actually running the bases and stuff, which he has yet to do. There’s still no timetable for his return.
