David Ortiz takes first steps after undergoing 2nd surgery at MGH

A new report suggests that the man who shot former Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz in the Dominican Republic may have been a hit man hired by a local drug lord.According to the Daily Mail, three law enforcement sources say that the drug lord believed that Ortiz was having an affair with his wife and hired two men to kill him.

The 10-time All-Star underwent another surgery on Monday and is now recovering in the ICU, where he'll remain for several days.

"On behalf of me and my family, I want to thank John and Linda Henry, Tom Werner, Sam Kennedy and the Boston Red Sox for all that they are doing for David and our family, as well as Dr. Larry Ronan and the incredible staff at Massachusetts General Hospital". 'On behalf of me and my family, I want to thank John and Linda Henry, Tom Werner, Sam Kennedy and the Boston Red Sox for all that they are doing for David and our family, as well as Dr. Larry Ronan and the fantastic staff at Massachusetts General Hospital'. "We ask for privacy as David works towards recovery".

The operator of the motorcycle that was carrying the gunman was captured and beaten by a crowd of people at the bar, authorities said.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora has not yet reached out to Ortiz, his Red Sox teammate from 2005-08.

The former player was also celebrated at Fenway Park with a moment of reflection before Monday's game. "That's the way we see it".

David Ortiz has taken his first steps since being shot in the back in the Dominican Republic Sunday and continues to recover in a Boston hospital, his spokesman Leo Lopez told CNN on Tuesday.

In a statement, Tiffany Ortiz said her husband was "stable, awake, and resting comfortably". He first underwent surgery at a hospital in the Dominican Republic, where "Big Papi" was born and raised. A second suspect remains at large.

According to ESPN Deportes, police have the suspected gunman and the suspected driver of the motorcycle in custody.

Ortiz played for the Red Sox from 2004-16 and won the World Series with Boston in 2004, 2007 and 2013.

"I don't have enough words to describe who David is, what David means to baseball", Martinez said on air. "But I'm so disappointed to know that someone like David, who saved so many lives, can have someone after his life".
