The injury was not life threatening and Pham received stitches to close the wound. The Padres released a statement saying, "He is currently in good condition."

Pham also released a statement thanking the UC San Diego Health staff and the San Diego Police Department.

"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. "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."

Pham was acquired by the Padres in a trade with Tampa Bay last offseason.
