The wife of former Red Sox star David Ortiz says her husband is recuperating at a hospital in Boston after being shot at a bar in his native Dominican Republic.

Tiffany Ortiz said in a statement issued by the team on Wednesday that her husband was in the intensive care unit at Massachusetts General Hospital under the direction of trauma surgeon Dr. David King.

''Yesterday and this morning, David was able to sit up as well as take some steps. His condition is guarded and he will remain in the ICU for the coming days, but he is making good progress towards recovery,'' she said.

''My family and I again want to thank everyone for their endless love and well wishes, and still ask for privacy while David continues to heal.''
