David Ortiz is recovering in Boston after being shot and wounded at a club in his hometown of Santo Domingo on Sunday.

In stable condition, Ortiz will continue his recovery at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Ortiz's media assistant Leo Lopez told ESPN that the former slugger underwent a six-hour operation performed by three doctors.

"Doctors say he is out of danger, but he is heavily sedated and will be in intensive care for the next 24 hours," Lopez said.
