Manager Dave Roberts, Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and SportsNet LA broadcaster Nomar Garciaparra — all former teammates of Ortiz — presented the donation on the field prior to the game. Starters announcedThe Dodgers are expected to place right-handed pitcher Bud Norris on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to Monday and recall Ross Stripling to make a spot start Saturday against the Red Sox. Stripling arrived at Dodger Stadium on Friday afternoon, but the move won’t be official until Saturday. Norris exited his last start Sunday with an injured lat muscle in his back after facing just two hitters. The right-hander will become the Dodgers’ 12th player on the disabled list currently, and their 24th different player to land on the DL this season — extending a National League record.Meanwhile, left-hander Rich Hill is expected to make his debut Sunday against Boston. Hill was on the disabled list with a finger blister when the Dodgers got him from the Oakland A’s at the Aug. 1 trade deadline.Hill threw 50 pitches in a bullpen session on Wednesday in Denver. Asked if Hill would be healthy enough to start Sunday, Roberts said “as far as I’m concerned, yes.”Hill was born in Boston and pitched for the Red Sox from 2010-12. Sunday will be his first start for any team since he was befallen by the blister on July 17 while pitching for Oakland. He was 9-3 with a 2.25 earned-run average in 14 games with the A’s.Stripling, a rookie, has never faced the Red Sox in his career. He’s 2-3 with a 4.14 ERA in 12 games (eight starts) with the Dodgers this year.AlsoTrayce Thompson’s back injury is worse than originally thought, and Roberts said the outfielder isn’t expected back before Sept. 1. Thompson originally went on the disabled list July 10 with lower back tightness. He has 13 home runs and 32 RBIs in 80 games this season. … Brett Anderson said his next rehab start will be Monday, at a location to be determined. Anderson threw four innings on Tuesday for Single-A Rancho Cucamonga. … Reddick said he took four entrances and three wrong turns on his way to Dodger Stadium for the first time. His drive in from Glendale took a little less than an hour. … Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia was removed from the game in the fourth inning after fouling a ball off his leg. He was diagnosed with a left shin contusion. … Pitcher Yaisel Sierra was promoted to Double-A Tulsa. The Dodgers signed Sierra to a six-year, $30 million free agent contract out of Cuba in spring training. Sierra struggled as a starter, was designated for assignment, then thrived as a relief pitcher at Single-A Rancho Cucamonga. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES >> When David Ortiz was chosen to participate in the All-Star Game in July, a representative from the Major League Baseball Players’ Association asked him to say a few words to his American League teammates before the game. Ortiz is 40 years old. He’s planning to retire after the season. So he agreed.“At some point, when younger players can hear what you have to say,” Ortiz said that day in San Diego, “it’s something that stays in their minds for their career. It’s important and they will appreciate that.”Eight years ago, when Ortiz was at the peak of his career, he was assigned to rehab an injury with the Portland Sea Dogs, Boston’s Double-A affiliate. No one asked Ortiz to give a speech that day. He did anyway, and among the young players listening was a 21-year-old outfielder named Josh Reddick. It was the first time that Reddick, who became a Dodger on Monday in a deadline-day trade with the Oakland A’s, had met Ortiz in person.“Immediately I knew I loved the guy because he put all the hitters into a room and he talked for a solid hour about hitting and how to approach things,” Reddick recalled. “That right there was a great first impression when I got there. (In the majors) he was the same guy. He came up to me and talked to me about what the starter had that night. Told me to come to the cage with him. Just broke down every single aspect of this game, of hitting, that you could. “I was just in awe. I just sat there and listened.”This weekend marks the Boston Red Sox’s only visit to Los Angeles this season, and Ortiz’s last ever as a player. To mark the occasion, the Dodgers gifted Ortiz with a $10,000 donation to his eponymous children’s charity Friday.
