 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz was not in the starting lineup Sunday against the Texas Rangers because of sore hamstrings.
``I wanted to give him today and let the medical people give him a little care,'' Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. ``Hopefully he'll bounce back and feel good tomorrow. I don't want him to limp for the next couple of weeks because we got greedy trying to get another game here.''
Francona also said Ortiz has had bouts of dehydration in the past week. Boston starting pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka left Friday's game after five innings because of nausea and dehydration.
The Red Sox have played two doubleheaders in the past 10 days.
``I just think with those doubleheaders that guys were getting sick,'' Francona said. ``A lot of guys got dehydrated, and they're feeling it in their legs. It's not just nausea.''
Boston has won the first games in their series at Texas after losing two of three against the New York Yankees.
Ortiz came into Sunday hitting .316 with nine home runs and 38 RBIs. He was replaced in the lineup by Eric Hinske.
