BOSTON -- David Ortiz is set to make his return for the Boston Red Sox following an eight-month layoff.

Ortiz was in the batting order to hit cleanup and be the designated hitter in Saturday's game against the Kansas City Royals.

The 37-year-old was activated from the disabled list Friday. Ortiz injured his right Achilles tendon running the bases on July 17 and appeared just once in Boston's final 72 games, going 2 for 3 against the Royals on Aug. 24.

Ortiz was bothered by inflammation in both heels during spring training, and he went 4 for 18 (.222) with a home run during a six-game injury rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket from April 11-18.
