"We've been talking, but right now nothing", Ortiz said, via MLB.com.

Late last night, former Red Sox great Pedro Martinez took to Twitter to get out some of his thoughts about different players and teams around the Major League Baseball.

Next weekend against the Houston Astros there will be two familiar faces in the media section in Houston for the Boston Red Sox.

Big Papi squashed that immediately.

"To be honest with you, the strike zone for a guy his height, that's why I say, that's why I believe he's so good and he's going to get better because when you are that tall, the strike zone is bigger", Ortiz added.

As a matter of fact, Ortiz is yet to even attend a game at Fenway Park since his retirement.

"I just retired", Ortiz said. "When the team gets hot, things are going to start happening at the same time". "I just want to give the guys their space".

Judge is now leading the major league with 18 home runs with a 41 RBI and a.324 batting average in just 52 games. "We're going back and forth and at some point it's going to happen".

Ortiz said he's been talking to the Red Sox about some kind of role with the organization, though he's not ready to commit to anything. Ortiz was also named to 10 American League All-Star teams during his Boston tenure and clubbed his 500th career home run for the club in 2015.

The Red Sox will open up a pivotal three-game series with the Yankees in NY starting on Monday night.
