Wife: Ex-Red Sox slugger Ortiz recovering from 3rd surgery

July 11, 2019 02:59 PM

BOSTON (AP) - Former Red Sox slugger David Ortiz is recovering from a third surgery after experiencing complications resulting from his gunshot wound.
    
Ortiz's wife, Tiffany, says in a statement Thursday that he is "recovering well and in good spirits." He had the surgery earlier this week at Massachusetts General Hospital.
    
Ortiz was shot in the back at a bar in the Dominican Republic last month. Dominican police have said he was mistaken for another man who was sitting near him at the club.
    
Police say a suspected drug trafficker offered to pay $30,000 for the shooting.
    
Police say they've arrested 14 people in the case, including the suspected gunman, and are searching for others.
