FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- David Ortiz says he's nearly fully recovered from knee surgery he had shortly after the Boston Red Sox won the World Series last year.

The star designated hitter arrived at spring training on Tuesday and took some swings in the batting cage. The first official team workout for all players is scheduled for Friday.

Ortiz said he felt good after leaving the cage. In the postseason last year, he batted .370 with three homers.

The only regulars who haven't shown up in camp are Manny Ramirez, Mike Lowell, Julio Lugo and Coco Crisp. Position players must report by Wednesday.
