MRIs last week revealed inflammation in both heels. The eight-time All-Star is making his way back from a strained right Achilles tendon that limited him to 90 games last season.

Red Sox manager John Farrell on Monday said Oritz is ``not ready for that next phase.'' Initially, Boston thought Ortiz would be able to resume activities in about a week.

Ortiz signed a two-year contract with Boston in December that could be worth $30 million if he has 20 or fewer days on the disabled list this season caused by an Achilles tendon injury.
