That article spends more time talking about his new stadium than the accusations.

The original article mentions the shooting in the very first sentence, so I wonder if the writer is trying to link the two things based on off-the-record info or supposition?

Is it possible Ortiz at least thinks this woman had something to do with the attempt on his life, accidental or intentional or otherwise?

There are no facts whatsoever to suggest this is the case. Let’s not engage in idle speculation.

This Spanish-language report from the DR provides a bit more detail than the other reports linked above. No idea if the source is reliable — it’s linked in the Yardbarker article cited in the OP.

Not only that, but it's completely normal for writers to mention the HUGE news item the subject of the article was recently involved in as a lead in to the new topic. Implying some sort of tie in is a real stretch.

I mean, they say the restraining order was for a former "partner"; Ortiz is married to an American, so that's not her, but it was pretty well proven he was seeing a woman in the DR and her husband/boyfriend/partner might've taken a hit out on him because of that, right? Or am I misremembering it all?

I thought the investigation revealed that one of the guys Papi was with that night was the actual target.

The article mentions that the former partner is Ortiz's babymama (for Deangelo?) so I think was more than just "seeing" her.

It says it’s related to a complaint filed May 21 for violation of a Family Violence law.

I can't recall, but has Ortiz been in the DR since the shooting? I would assume so since the date on this is May 21, but maybe he said something over the phone?

I'll hold out for some more facts, but I thought it was common knowledge that's he had more than one girl going at a time fairly regularly in the past
I wonder what has prompted this and reserve judgement until we get something more concrete

The law looks pretty broad. Everything from physical or sexual violence to inflicting psychological damage to violence in front of children, etc.

I didn't follow the story that closely, but I remember reading something about how people in DR felt that the government conclusion was laughable. The other guy that DO was with is like 100 lbs less than him or something.

Do we need to make a judgement?

WEEI reports he has a restraining order against her as well

Per the WEEI article
On Monday night, Ortiz's son David posted a video on social media of a disagreement between Ortiz and Fernandez at a home Ortiz owns, but allow David and his mother use. Ortiz apparently was there to check on renovations.

Baerlein said Ortiz had a good relationship with his son until this.
I assume this will be posted somewhere

So she's trying to say something, without saying it
She's implying she has some dirt on him, but right now, just seems to be a custody battle and potentially an ugly custody battle if they are going to do it through social media

Video was grainy, obviously, but I think it was about him wearing socks with sandals.
That's what I got out of it too. For my man to look that sharp in a suit then be a disgrace to fashion like he was there...

In all seriousness, it does appear the mother of David's son wanted to record the acrimony for one reason or another, and I'm not judging either way. It could be because she selfishly wants to use his fame against him, or it could be she is truly being bullied and feels getting it on tape is needed.

Here's where I'm at:

If he's in a heated custody battle with a girlfriend, odds are pretty high it's about money and winning, probably not in that order, and whatever happens I just want the best for the kid and it's not really going to change my opinion of Papi in any way.

If there's real evidence that he physically abused her, it will meaningfully change my opinion of him.

The existence of restraining orders and claims by each against the other are insufficient to put it into the second category - for now.
