"He's is stable, awake and resting comfortably this morning in the ICU where he is expected to remain for the next several days", the statement said.

"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. He first underwent surgery at a hospital in the Dominican Republic, where "Big Papi" was born and raised.

"Ortiz is now in intensive care, but considered stable". He was treated at the Dario Contreras Hospital in Santo Domingo before being released to police custody.
