Eliezer Salvador, a friend of Ortiz's who said he drove the slugger to the hospital in the aftermath of the shooting, told The Associated Press he asked Ortiz if he knew of any enemies who would want to have him killed.

On Tuesday, Tiffany released a statement through the Boston Red Sox to thank the franchise for their efforts to have a plane ready for him to take him from his hometown in Santo Domingo to bring her 43-year-old husband home.

Ortiz is expected to remain in the ICU "for the next several days".

"Lastly, I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support and love that we have received during this incredible hard time", her statement reads. "Big Papi will be around for a long time".

Tiffany did not speak on that.

Doctors are hopeful he will make a full recovery.

A suspect has been identified, but the motive in the shooting remains unclear.

Ortiz had been listed in stable condition in the intensive care unit of a Dominican Republic hospital earlier Monday following surgery for gunshot wounds. Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte, the director of the Dominican National Police, said a group of people at the bar surrounded the suspect and beat him before police arrived, per ESPN. He suffered a cranium contusion and multiple other injuries and had to be treated at the hospital before being released into police custody.

While Ortiz's representative, Leo Lopez, denied the claims that Ortiz was having an affair, he did say that the shooting appeared to be the work of "hired killers." The country's attorney general told Ortiz on Monday that the investigation had "advanced considerably", according to Martin Finucane of the Boston Globe, who cited a Spanish report.
