David Ortiz underwent another round of surgery on Monday night after he arrived in Boston, and we have heard several positive updates about his health since.

Meanwhile, the Red Sox released a statement on Monday morning: "We have offered David's family all available resources to aid in his recovery and will continue to keep them in our hearts", it said.

Red Sox president Sam Kennedy said at a press conference in Boston on Monday afternoon that doctors "have confirmed that David's condition is still serious" but that he had been stabilized enough to be flown to a Boston hospital for further treatment.

Red Sox great Pedro Martinez delivered an emotional and powerful tribute to David Ortiz as his former teammate recovers from a gunshot wound he suffered Sunday night in his native Dominican Republic.

Ortiz is said to be "stable, awake, and resting comfortably".

Ortiz was shot at a club Sunday in Santo Domingo and underwent emergency surgery to fix damage done by the bullet to both his intestines and his liver.

Although initial reports suggested that Ortiz was shot during a robbery, police no longer believe that to be the case.

A spokesperson for the three-time World Series champion, who is fondly called "Big Papi" by fans, doesn't think the shooting was a robbery attempt.

Ortiz played 20 Major League Baseball seasons before retiring at the end of the 2016 season.

Police have two people in custody, the suspected shooter and the suspected driver of the motorcycle, a source close to the investigation told ESPN Deportes.

ESPN earlier reported that the attacker was identified as 25-year-old Eddy Feliz Garcia.

"He's on the Mount Rushmore of Boston sports", said Eddie Romero, the team's assistant general manager.

Boston Red Sox's Pedro Martinez and David Ortiz laugh during the pregame ceremony to honor Ortiz's retirement before his last regular season home game at Fenway Park, Oct. 2, 2016 in Boston.

"There's just one coward out there that just wanted to do that to someone who didn't deserve it". "A lot of times I see guys who play on my team coming to the United States to live".

"Six years ago, David Ortiz's spirit and resolve helped us all begin to heal from the Boston Marathon bombing", Obama added of the player, who made a rousing speech calling Boston "our f- -king city" after the 2013 terror attack. Ortiz maintains a home in Weston, on the outskirts of Boston.
