Ortiz was set to bat third Friday night at Tampa Bay. David Price is scheduled to start for the Rays.

The last time Price faced Boston, he hit Ortiz with a fastball in late May and that led to a verbal skirmish between the stars.

Ortiz exited Thursday's game at Toronto during an at-bat in the ninth inning after hurting his back on a swing.
