David Ortiz’s wife, Tiffany, later put out a statement through the Red Sox, saying her husband “is stable, awake and resting comfortably this morning in the ICU, where he is expected to remain for the next several days.”

She thanked the team as well as doctors.

“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,” Tiffany Ortiz said.

The surgery “lasted until about 1 a.m.,’’ tweeted Marly Rivera of ESPN.

“Ortiz is expected to be closely monitored for the next 24-48 hours. Visits will be very limited during that period,’’ she wrote. “Doctors have said that they expect a full recovery. Ortiz has also been alert and has talked to his family and ‘even flashed that smile.’”
