Two weeks after he was shot in the back in the Dominican Republic, David Ortiz was moved out of the intensive care unit at MGH, according to a statement from his wife, Tiffany, released through the Red Sox.

“David was moved out of the intensive care unit at Massachusetts General Hospital," Tiffany Ortiz said in the statement. "He remains in good condition and continues to recover under the care of Drs. David King and Larry Ronan.”

The continuing positive news comes days after Ortiz's condition was ugpraded to "good" earlier in the week.
