Ortiz actions regarding court orders unclear

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- A Red Sox team spokesman says it is unclear whether or not Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz has asked the MLB Players Association to start the process of requesting court orders in order to attain the results of the 2003 drug test for which Ortiz tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs. The court orders would be necessary if the union wanted to unseal the results of the tests, to which only the federal government has access. It is also unknown whether or not the Players Association has begun the process on its own.

Pre-game notes: Ortiz still not talking about failed drug test

ST. PETERSBURG -- Some early notes from the Red Sox clubhouse prior to the start of a two-game series against the Tampa Ray Rays on Tuesday:

--David Ortiz is not discussing his positive test for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003 today. It is unclear whether the Player's Association has requested information about the positive test from the U.S. government, with the procurement of information needing multiple court orders. "We need to be patient and wait. That's where we're at," said Sox manager Terry Francona. "This is not David. Right now we're all on hold."

--Tim Wakefield's throwing session on flat ground today went well, according to both the pitcher and Sox pitching coach John Farrell. Manager Terry Francona suggested that the pitcher felt like he could pitch in a game (so long as he did not have to cover first base). He will throw a bullpen session on Wednesday, his first since landing on the disabled list shortly after...
