BOSTON (AP) - The Red Sox made a qualifying offer of a $13.3 million, one-year contract to designated hitter David Ortiz, which would entitle Boston to an extra draft pick if he leaves as a free agent.

The team has been negotiating with Ortiz on a two-year deal. He has until Nov. 9 to accept the $13.3 million deal.

Boston did not make qualifying offers Friday to right-handers Aaron Cook, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Vicente Padilla; first baseman James Loney; and outfielders Scott Podsednik and Cody Ross.

Ortiz batted .318 with 23 homers and 60 RBIs while missing almost half the season with games due to a strained right Achilles tendon.
