David Ortiz (Big Papi) was released from the hospital yesterday, a source close to the family told ESPN. Ortiz will continue his rehabilitation at home, where he will be closely monitored by full-time nurses and will be visited regularly by his personal physician.

The Red Sox issued a brief statement, but declined to describe his condition.

“We understand that David has been released from MGH,” the Red Sox said a statement Saturday about David Ortiz. “There will be an update on his condition early next week.”

Big Papi was shot at close range at a nightclub in the Dominican Republic on June 9, and nearly died from traumatic injuries to his liver, small intestine, large intestine, and gallbladder, which was removed. He immediately underwent surgery in Santo Domingo, and then was flown to Boston the next day on a team-chartered airplane for a second operation and prolonged recovery that included yet a third surgery in mid-July.
