Boston Red Sox legend David Ortiz is reportedly expected to make a “total recovery” after suffering a gunshot wound while at a club in the Dominican Republic.
His Father has given an update.
“His father addressed reporters last night and said that Ortiz had no damage to any organs, but his assistant told ESPN that doctors had to continue working on him late into the night and parts of organs had to be treated/removed. Ortiz is currently in intensive care, but considered stable.”
