  • Great news after an evening of nervously refreshing the news: David Oritz is in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery following being shot in the lower back in the Dominican Republic.

Ortiz was attacked while at a club in his hometown of Santo Domingo Este. The suspect is reportedly in custody. It was first reported that Big Papi had been shot in the leg, but multiple outlets have now confirmed that the bullet went through his lower back and out the other side of his abdomen. We here at MLB Daily Dish and SB Nation likewise wish Big Papi the speediest of recoveries and are grateful that he’s okay.
