Padres outfielder Tommy Pham is in ‘good condition’ after being stabbed outside of a gentleman’s club on Sunday in San Diego.
The San Diego Union-Tribune broke the story which was confirmed by both the player and the team. The newspaper reported that Pham left the establishment, Pacers Showgirls International gentlemen’s club, and saw two people arguing near his car. After asking them to move, he was stabbed in the lower back. No major organs were hit and stitches were required to seal up the wound.
Police say that the stabbing took place around 10:30 p.m. PT. The attackers remain at large.
“I’d like to thank the incredible medical staff at UC San Diego Health for taking such great care of me last night,” Pham, 32, 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.”
Three days prior, Pham played in Game 3 of the Padres’ loss to the Dodgers in the National League Division Series. Pham played in all three games of the series.
