Cardinals superstar Marcell Ozuna says he ain’t scared to return to the D.R. after David Ortiz was shot Sunday … but he tells TMZ Sports he will have to watch his back in his home country now.
“I’ma be careful,” the 28-year-old Santo Domingo native admits.
Ortiz was sitting outside of a bar over the weekend when a man walked up from behind and shot him at point-blank range.
Ozuna tells us he’s not ready to go that far with his feelings on the D.R. yet … but says he will have to be on high alert when he’s back home now.
“I’m not afraid,” the outfielder says … “But I’ma be careful.”
As for Big Papi … his wife, Tiffany, says he’s continuing “to make progress” in his recovery from the shooting.
