Major League Baseball Foot Injury Update

Baltimore Orioles
Troy Patton, RP
Patton began rehab activity on Tuesday, running in the pool, and was expected to throw for the first time yesterday. He is expected to be back in September, just in time for playoffs.
Boston Red Sox
David Ortiz, DH
Ortiz is back on the 15-day DL because of his Achilles tendon injury. Ortiz is set to receive PRP, platelet rich plasma, injections and undergo a week of treatment for his injury. The team remains hopeful he will return for the remainder of 2012. "If everyone felt, if he had that desire and the medical staff thought that it was the best thing for his career, that would definitely be done," manager Bobby Valentine said about keeping Ortiz on the DL. "But with the meeting of the minds, with David wanting to get back in the uniform and the medical staff believing that there's a chance he could, we figured that's the best way to go." Ryan Kalish was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket to take his roster spot.
Chicago White Sox
Orlando Hudson, 2B
Hudson began his rehab assignment Monday night with Charlotte. He led off against Syracuse and went 1 for 4 with a strikeout in the game. He is recuperating from a bruised left toe.
