The following is a statement released by the Red Sox Tuesday on behalf of Tiffany Ortiz, the wife of David Ortiz.

"David arrived at Massachusetts General Hospital last night and underwent a successful second surgery. He is stable, awake, and resting comfortably this morning in the ICU where he is expected to remain for the next 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 amazing staff at Massachusetts General Hospital.

“Lastly, I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support and love that we have received during this incredibly difficult time. We ask for privacy as David works towards recovery.”

It was reported earlier Tuesday that Ortiz underwent "exploratory" surgery at Mass General into the early morning hours and that a full recovery was expected.
