FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The only unaccounted for player in Red Sox camp is expected to make his arrival Tuesday. Manager John Farrell said Monday that he expects Red Sox slugger David Ortiz in camp on time to take his physical and report to camp in time for the first full squad workout on Wednesday. But asked specifically if he's heard from the 39-year-old slugger, Farrell said he had not had any formal contact as of Monday morning. "I don't have an exact arrival date yet, no," the manager said. In the last several years, Ortiz has arrived days in advance of the first full squad workout but he has not been sighted so far.
