We discuss the latest concerning retired Red Sox slugger David Ortiz, who is suffering organ damage after being shot last night while at a bar in his native Dominican Republic.

Ortiz has been hospitalized in Santo Domingo since the shooting. He's gone through surgery and is expected to return to Boston for further treatment once he's stable enough to travel.
