After collapsing in the dugout during Friday night’s game against the Astros and being transported to the hospital, Danny Farquhar remains in stable but critical condition at Rush University Medical Center. The White Sox put out a statement this afternoon:
Tests have revealed that Chicago White Sox pitcher Danny Farquhar suffered a brain hemorrhage during the sixth inning of last night’s game, and additional overnight testing at RUSH University Medical Center revealed that a ruptured aneurysm caused the brain bleed. Currently stable but in critical condition in the neurosurgical ICU unit at RUSH, Farquhar continues to receive treatment and close monitoring by Dr. Demetrius Lopez and the neurosurgical team. The White Sox will provide additional updates on Farquhar’s health over the coming days as appropriate, but the club also asks that you respect the privacy of the Farquhar family at this time. Thank you.
The White Sox placed Farquhar on the 10-day disabled list, citing “a brain aneurysm” as the official description. Gregory Infante has replaced him on the roster, rejoining the White Sox after three scoreless appearances for the Knights.
On Twitter, the club asked White Sox fans to “please keep Danny and his family in your positive thoughts and prayers.”
In an unrelated move, the White Sox officially reinstated Kevan Smith from the disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A.
