Former MLB outfielder Karim Garcia found himself in a precarious situation while driving his truck in Saltillo, Mexico on Sunday.

According to ESPN Deportes, Garcia was pulled out of his truck and beaten while driving around Coahuila, the capital of Saltillo. Record News, a news outlet in Mexico, reported Sunday that Garcia was set to undergo surgery Monday. However, there is no word of how the surgery went. Specifics on Garcia’s injury have also yet to be reported.

Despite the lack of news on Garcia’s current condition, the 40-year-old has been active on Twitter since the attack. Though his tweets are mainly in Spanish, he has said that he appreciates all of the well-wishes.

Garcia played for seven different major league teams during his 10-year career, and currently plays for Saraperso of the Mexican Baseball League. He last played in the big leagues in 2004, when he played in 24 games for the Baltimore Orioles.

One of Garcia’s biggest moments came in 2003, when Garcia played for the Yankees. Ironically enough, Pedro Martinez plunked Garcia, which set off the brawl that led to Martinez throwing Don Zimmer to the ground.

In the same game, Garcia got into a fight with a Red Sox groundskeeper. Garcia ultimately was put on probation for six months and performed 50 hours of community service.

Here’s to hoping Garcia makes a speedy recovery.
