David Ortiz, DH
The tentativeness that resulted from his wrist injury appears to be gone. But there are no guarantees that Ortiz can reclaim the magic of past years in Fenway. Just as he might improve on his .264 average, 30 doubles, and 23 home runs of last season, he might just as easily prove that his status of being a dominant slugger in the middle of this lineup is nearing an end.
