The wife of Boston Red Sox legend David Ortiz has released a new statement as her husband continues to recover from a gunshot wound.

Ortiz, 43, was shot in his native Dominican Republic on Sunday night in an apparent assassination attempt.

The Red Sox icon underwent surgery in the D.R. and was transported to Boston on Monday, where he again underwent surgery.

Ortiz' wife, Tiffany, released a new statement this afternoon.

The 10-time All-Star underwent another surgery on Monday and is currently recovering in the ICU, where he'll remain for several days. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Our thoughts continue to be with David, Tiffany and their family.
