David Ortiz undergoes another surgery since being shot in Dominican Republic

Red Sox legend David Ortiz continues to fight his way back to health since being shot last month in the Dominican Republic.

The Red Sox released a statement Thursday on behalf of Ortiz’s wife Tiffany announcing the former slugger had undergone a third surgery earlier this week in Boston due to complications from his gunshot wound.

“David is recovering well and is in good spirits,” the statement read. “We continue to be incredibly appreciative of the kindness and compassion shown to David and to our entire family during this difficult time.”

Ortiz, 43, was at a Santo Domingo bar in his native Dominican Republic the night of June 9 when a suspect shot him at close range. So far, 14 people have been taken into custody in connection with what Dominican Republic authorities have deemed a hit gone wrong.
