Ortiz was shot in the lower right back while enjoying an evening at a bar in his hometown of Santo Domingo. The bullet entered through his back and exited his stomach, and he sustained injuries to his intestines and liver. He underwent extensive surgery in the Dominican Republic before being transported to Boston, where doctors performed another surgery and said he is expected to make a full recovery.
