Padres outfielder Tommy Pham is recovering and in “good condition” after being stabbed during an altercation Sunday night in San Diego.
Both Pham and the Padres confirmed the news to the San Diego Union-Tribune. Citing two people who talked to the veteran big leaguer, the newspaper reported Monday that Pham left an establishment, saw two people whom he didn’t know arguing near his car and eventually asked them to move.
Pham then was stabbed. No major organs were hit, and he needed stitches to sew up the wound.
The Padres said Pham, 32, is in “good condition” and expected to make a full recovery. The San Diego Police Department is investigating the incident.
“I’d like to thank the incredible medical staff at UC San Diego Health for taking such great care of me last night,” Pham said in a statement. “I truly appreciate the hard work of the [San Diego Police Department] as well as they continue their search for the suspects. While it was a very traumatic and eye-opening experience for me, I’m on the road to recovery and I know I’ll be back to my offseason training routine in no time.”
The incident occurred three days after the upstart Padres were ousted in the National League Division Series by the Los Angeles Dodgers. Pham played in all three games, with three hits in 11 at-bats.
