Not terribly surprised here.

Late last week, it was reported that Padres outfielder Tommy Pham is suing the strip club where he was involved in an altercation that got him stabbed in the lower back this past October.

The 32-year old was not directly involved in the scuffle, but was turned into an innocent bystander as he was attempting to reach his car, which happened to be right next to those who started the incident.

Pham is claiming that the security at the club only “escalated the risk” to him and other patrons by antagonizing the combatants and by participating in the altercation. According to the CBS Sports report by Mike Axisa, the lawsuit alleges he suffered “catastrophic injuries, which have and will continue to cause him significant economic damage, including but not limited to his earning capacity as an elite professional baseball player.”

As of right now, the police have made zero arrests stemming from the incident and there is a hearing scheduled for June 25.

In 2020, Oham slashes .211/.312/.312 with three home runs. Unfortunately, he was limited to 31 games due to a hand injury. In 2019, recorded 21 home runs and slashed .273/.369/.450.
