David Ortiz Undergoes Third Surgery After Gunshot Wound Complications

Former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz underwent another surgery as he continues his recovery from a gunshot wound suffered last month.

The Red Sox announced the news on behalf of Ortiz's wife, Tiffany.

"Earlier this week, David underwent a third surgery for complications resulting from his gunshot wound," the statement said.

"David is recovering well and is in good spirits. We continue to be incredibly appreciative of the kindness and compassion show to David and to our entire family during this difficult time."

Ortiz, 43, was shot on June 9 while outside of a nightclub in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
