The third surgery had to be performed due to complications resulting from the gunshot wound.

"We continue to be incredibly appreciative of the kindness and compassion shown to David and to our entire family during this hard time", Tiffany Ortiz said in the statement.

Ortiz, 43, is still recovering at a Boston hospital after being shot on June 9 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Ortiz's wife didn't give specific details in regards to the complications although she did note that he is "recovering well and in good spirits".

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. "We continue to be incredibly appreciative of the kindness and compassion show to David and to our entire family during this hard time".

He then underwent an exploratory surgery after being transported to Mass. Authorities have arrested 14 people in connection with the attack. His wife said late last month that Ortiz was released from intensive care.

Ortiz played 20 Major League Baseball seasons before retiring after the 2016 season. He was named World Series MVP for his performance against the St. Louis Cardinals in 2013.
