The San Diego Padres’ season came to an end following a 12-3 loss last Thursday as the juggernaut Los Angeles Dodgers swept the club in the National League Division Series.

Padres outfielder Tommy Pham is counting his blessings this week after he found himself in an altercation that left him stabbed in his lower back.

The report indicates there was an argument happening near his car and after he asked those involved to move, that’s when the stabbing occurred.

No organs were damaged, and Pham received stitches to close the wound that pierced all three layers of skin.

Padres released a statement to the San Diego Union-Tribune on his behalf:

“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 released by the team. “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.”
