David Ortiz underwent another round of surgery on Monday night after he arrived in Boston, and we have heard several positive updates about his health since.

"I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support and love that we have received during this incredibly hard time", Tiffany Ortiz's statement said. The bullet is believed to have hit Ortiz in his lower back and passed through his body. Ortiz was sitting at an outdoor table at a bar in his hometown of Santo Domingo when two men drove up on a motorcycle.

The motorcyclist, later identified as 25-year-old Eddy Feliz Garcia, was tackled by a crowd after the shooting and handed over to the police.

Pedro went on to say Ortiz is like a brother to him.

Once doctors had stabilized him he was flown to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston where he underwent a second surgery.

Another one of Ortiz's former Red Sox teammates, Hall of Fame pitcher Pedro Martinez, who also hails from the Dominican Republic, broke down in tears while talking about Ortiz on Monday night during a broadcast on the MLB Network.

The former Boston Red Sox player is now awake and in "stable" condition, his wife Tiffany Ortiz said in a statement issued through the Red Sox.

Ortiz has been alert, has spoken to his family and "even flashed that smile", his media assistant, Leo Lopez, told ESPN. He was soon taken into custody by the police.

Investigators are trying to determine whether Ortiz was the intended target, Bautista said.

Ortiz retired in 2016 after helping the Sox win three World Series titles.
