Red Sox DH David Ortiz, who has been hitting everything in sight since returning from the disabled list, revealed Sunday that he's been dealing with a personal issue off the field: He and his wife Tiffany are getting a divorce.

While sharing the news with WEEI.com and MLB.com, Ortiz stressed that he wants the public to treat his personal life as a private matter unrelated to his responsibilities on the field.

“I’m going to separate things,” Ortiz told WEEI.com and MLB.com. “Whatever is happening to me off the field is happening, but I try not to confuse that and bring that into my job. I know how to separate things. Personal life matters, and hopefully everybody respects that.”

Ortiz and his wife of nine years, Tiffany, have three children -- daughters Jessica and Alexandra, and son D'Angelo, who is a fixture in Fort Myers in February and at Fenway Park during the summer.

"There are some situations in life that work out for a period of time and at some point they don’t work out anymore and you have to move on," Ortiz went on to say. "I’m moving on. She’s moving on. Hopefully everybody respects that."
