David Ortiz has never been one to lack confidence, but the Red Sox designated hitter called his shot -- a day in advance.

Ortiz has missed nine games with bursitis in his right heel, but Boston manager Terry Francona said Ortiz would be back in the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers.

Reporters asked Ortiz his plans for Wednesday and he answered with just two words.

"Go deep," he said, according to Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe.

Ortiz has never homered off Wednesday's starter, Matt Harrison, but does have three hits against him in seven at-bats.
