White Sox pitcher Danny Farquhar 'progressing well' after brain surgery

White Sox pitcher Danny Farquhar 'progressing well' after brain surgery

It's obviously far too early to know whether Farquhar will ever play again and that's not the most important thing to him right now, of course. Now players have written "D.F. 43" near the front of their ballcaps.

Fellow White Sox player, James Shields, also spoke out about the way he was feeling and the status of Danny's condition at the April 21 game."Yeah, I mean, it crushes us in this clubhouse", he said.

'When you see one of your brothers go down like that, it's not very fun to watch. Our prayers are with him.

The commotion in the dugout was the first sign something was wrong Friday night.

Farquhar, 1-1 in eight appearances this season, faced four batters and threw 15 pitches to get the final two outs in the top of the sixth before he passed out after the inning.

Houston manager A.J. Hinch said some of his players saw Farquhar collapse.

The White Sox VP said that both Farquhar's wife and mother attended the game on Friday and when they reached the team's clubhouse, he was inside an ambulance on the way to the hospital.

White Sox team president Kenny Williams told USA Today that the 31-year-old Farquhar is in "the fight of his life" after he was rushed to the hospital on Friday night. A Rush spokesman referred to the Sox for all updates. But he's got three little kids, and they were his world. He regained consciousness before he was taken to a hospital by ambulance. He has pitched in 23 games for the Sox with a 4.84 ERA. Renteria called him a "great kid, hard worker".

Danny's baseball career goes back a long way. "He's alive, he's got a chance, and that's what I'm hanging on to", pitching coach Don Cooper tells the Chicago Sun-Times. My God, this certainly shows the fragility of life and how we take every day for granted. On Saturday, the team announced that Farquhar had suffered a brain hemorrhage stemming from a ruptured aneurysm.
