FORT MYERS, Fla. -- David Ortiz's retired No. 34 was placed outside JetBlue Park this evening.

The Red Sox have all their retired numbers (1, 4, 6, 8, 9, 14, 26, 42, 45 and now 34) outside the park. No. 42 is retired throughout baseball to celebrate Jackie Robinson.

The former DH is expected to help out players at spring training at some point this month or during March.

His role with the Red Sox includes acting as a mentor for current players, participating in recruitment efforts, making special appearances for the club and working in a business development capacity for Fenway Sports Management and its partners.
