Ortiz begins rehab assignment at PawSox home opener

Posted: Updated:
PAWTUCKET, R.I. -

Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz begins a rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday.

He's scheduled to bat third in the line-up.

Ortiz has been sidelined with heel inflammation this spring after missing much of the second half of last season with a right Achilles tendon injury.

The PawSox open their 2013 season at McCoy Stadium on Thursday.

Players will be honored with a special ring ceremony to celebrate last season's Governor's Cup championship.
