Ortiz undergoes third surgery related to gunshot wound

But this is also a reminder of just how badly he was hurt in he attack and how far he has had - and still has - before being fully recovered. Ortiz's wife didn't give specific details in regards to the complications although she did note that he is "recovering well and in good spirits".

"We continue to be incredibly appreciative of his kindness and compassion shown to David and to our entire family during this hard time".

Authorities in the Dominican Republic say Ortiz was not the intended target of the shooting.

Ortiz has yet to publicly comment on the incident and remains in care at Mass. He was a 10-time All-Star and led the Red Sox to three World Series champions in his 14 seasons in Boston.
