Tiffany Ortiz released a statement through the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday morning, and she said David is "resting comfortably" after undergoing a second successful surgery at Mass General Hospital.

Former Red Sox slugger David Ortiz is recovering in Boston from a two-hour exploratory surgery after being shot at a bar in his native Dominican Republic.

Doctors in Santo Domingo removed Ortiz's gallbladder and part of his intestines.

ESPN joins the chorus of other well-wishers hoping David Ortiz makes a speedy recovery.

Shortly after he was shot, Ortiz was taken to Abel Gonzalez Center for Advanced Medicine in Santo Domingo, where he underwent his first surgery.

Ortíz was dining at the Dial Bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo, an open-air hotspot, on Sunday and had his back to the sidewalk as a gunman - a passenger on a motorcycle - got off the bike just before 9 p.m., approached the 43-year-old retired athlete and fired a single shot at close range before escaping, according to Dominican Republic National Police. The bullet is believed to have hit Ortiz in his lower back and passed through his body.

The shooting prompted Ortiz to reportedly plead with the emergency room doctor "Please don't let me die, I'm a good man".

A spokesperson for the Dominican Republic's National Health Service told ESPN that Garcia suffered a cranium contusion and injuries to his thorax, knee and right leg.

Ortiz made 10 All-Star teams and won three World Series with the Red Sox before retiring in 2016.

"We ask for privacy as David works toward recovery".

Ortiz began his major league career by playing six seasons for the Minnesota Twins (1997-2002), but his career blossomed after he joined the Red Sox.

His father added: "Big Papi will be around for a long time".

Police have not yet released the identity of the suspected gunman. Investigators said they were trying to determine whether Ortiz was the intended target.

The Red Sox icon underwent surgery in the D.R. and was transported to Boston on Monday, where he again underwent surgery.

Salvador told Pozo that he saw the shooter but that it wasn't the man who was beaten by the crowd.

The Red Sox held a moment of prayer for Ortiz prior to their home game Monday night against the Texas Rangers.
