David Ortiz (heels) said he feels OK after taking 50 swings in the cage on Tuesday.
It's a small sign of progress for the veteran slugger, who hadn't swung a bat in nine days due to continued discomfort in both of his heels. Ortiz is scheduled to work out on Wednesday, but it's not clear if he'll take more swings. And obviously running is still probably a ways off. He's slated to begin the season on the disabled list and there's no clear timetable on when he'll be ready to go.
