Former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz underwent a second surgery at a MA hospital and is stable and resting after he was gunned down in the Dominican Republic.

The Red Sox released a statement on behalf of Ortiz's wife, Tiffany, who provided an update Tuesday on the three-time World Series champion.

The former Boston Red Sox slugger underwent a second operation at Boston's Massachusetts General Hospital overnight after being flown from the Dominican Republic on Monday.

David Ortiz #34 of the Boston Red Sox waves to fans during the pregame ceremony to honor his retirement before his last regular season home game at Fenway Park on October 2, 2016 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Ortiz was rushed to the hospital where he underwent emergency surgery. The Red Sox retired his number the following year. Frank Duran Mejia had mistakenly identified Garcia as the suspected shooter. Ortiz's spokesperson, Leo Lopez, told ESPN that his client has been alert and "even flashed that smile".

Reports have since surfaced that Big Papi was shot as a result of dealing with the wife of a drug lord, which might explain why the shooter came into the bar and only targeted him.

The operator of the motorcycle that was carrying the gunman was captured and beaten by a crowd of people at the bar, authorities said. A team of surgeons, led by Dr. Abel Gonzalez, operated on Ortiz for six hours and repaired damage done by the bullet to both intestines and his liver. "We as for privacy as David works towards recovery". He suffered a cranium contusion and multiple other injuries and had to be treated at the hospital before being released into police custody. He was named World Series MVP in 2013, when he helped the Red Sox knock off the St. Louis Cardinals.

Ortiz is 17th in the all-time home run tables, having hit 541 in his 20-season career.

He was hailed as a hero in Boston for rallying the city after the Boston Marathon bombing.

"They talk about superheroes without capes and he's a superhero without a cape", Red Sox manager Alex Cora, who a former teammate of Ortiz's in Boston, said during a pregame news conference.
