White Sox right-handed reliever Danny Farquhar suffered a brain hemorrhage and was in stable but critical condition in a Chicago hospital on Saturday, the team announced.
Farquhar, 31, passed out in the dugout during the sixth inning of Friday night's game against the Houston Astros. Overnight testing revealed that a ruptured aneurysm caused the brain bleed.
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. He was attended to by White Sox personnel and emergency medical technicians.
The team said Farquhar was conscious when he was taken from Guaranteed Rate Field to the Rush University Medical Center.
Farquhar signed with the White Sox on July 24, 2017. He has played for three other teams over seven big league seasons. He has a 10-15 record and 3.93 ERA in 253 regular-season games.
