Source: Ortiz will accept arbitration

DALLAS -- DH David Ortiz plans to accept the offer of salary arbitration that the Red Sox extended to him, meaning that he will stay in Boston for at least until 2012, a source told ESPNdeportesLosAngeles.com.

Wednesday at midnight is the deadline for players to accept arbitration. Ortiz earned $12.5 million in 2011 and could get $14 million-$15 million in arbitration. The parties still could work out a two-year deal as well.
