But we got some good news from his family today: Ortiz has undergone a third surgery for his gunshot wound, and is "recovering well".

Red Sox slugger David Ortiz has undergone a third surgery for complications resulting from being shot in his native Dominican Republic, the team said Thursday.

Ortiz had the surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he also had his second surgery and has stayed recovering for about a month since the shooting. Fernandez was seated at the same table as Ortiz at the time of the shooting June 9.

Amazon Music Growth Outpaces Spotify, Apple Music
A new report says that Amazon is growing subscribers for its music service faster than market leaders Spotify and Apple. Prime members only have to drop $8 a month while Echo device users only have to pay $4.

Dominican authorities have said that Ortiz was not the intended target in the attack. "We continue to be incredibly appreciative of the kindness and compassion shown to David and to our entire family during this hard time".

He then underwent an exploratory surgery after being transported to Mass. His wife said late last month that Ortiz was released from intensive care. Almost a dozen individuals have been arrested for orchestrating the attack, including the alleged mastermind on June 28.

Ortiz led the Red Sox to three World Series championships, was a 10-time All-Star and hit 541 home runs.
