Red Sox legend David Ortiz continues to fight his way back to health since being shot last month in the Dominican Republic.

The Red Sox released a statement Thursday on behalf of Ortiz’s wife Tiffany announcing the former slugger had undergone a third surgery earlier this week in Boston due to complications from his gunshot wound.

“David is recovering well and is in good spirits,” the statement read. “We continue to be incredibly appreciative of the kindness and compassion shown to David and to our entire family during this difficult time.”

Ortiz, 43, was at a Santo Domingo bar in his native Dominican Republic the night of June 9 when a suspect shot him at close range. So far, 14 people have been taken into custody in connection with what Dominican Republic authorities have deemed a hit gone wrong.

National Police spokesman Frank Félix Duran Mejía said Ortiz was sitting near the intended victim after a suspected drug trafficker offered to pay $30,000 for the shooting that ended up wounding the slugger instead.

Ortiz underwent surgery in the Dominican Republic following the shooting, and doctors removed his gallbladder and part of his intestines. He was then transported to Boston.

Ortiz was a 10-time All-Star who led the Red Sox to three World Series titles.

Red Sox’s Chris Sale (3-8) sounds off on ‘absolutely embarrassing’ first half.
Sale said that he's never felt more "frustrated" by his performance after Boston's 6-3 loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday.
