Ortiz: Wrist is "Feeling Fine"

From the Associated Press:

Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz said he is about a month away from swinging a bat after spending the last month resting the ailing left wrist that slowed him for much of last season.
Speaking at a news conference to announce a new charity golf tournament in the Dominican Republic, Ortiz said his wrist is "feeling fine" and the inflammation has gone away.
"It's doing good," he said.
Ortiz, who hit 54 homers in 2006, batted .264 with just 23 home runs and 89 RBIs in 109 games -- all lows for him since he joined the Red Sox in 2003. He made two trips to the disabled list with a partially torn tendon sheath in his left wrist.
"Since I got back, I was missing a lot of pitches," he said. "I was like, 'I can't believe it.' "
Doctors told him to rest over the offseason and have predicted a full recovery.
