White Sox's Farquhar in critical condition after brain haemorrhage

Chicago White Sox reliever Danny Farquhar had to be taken to the hospital after collapsing in the dugout during Friday night's 10-0 loss to the Houston Astros at Guaranteed Rate Field.

The team said Farquhar had a brain hemorrhage during the sixth inning after a ruptured aneurysm. Farquhar remains hospitalized in critical but stable condition as the team requested respect and privacy for the Farquhar family during this tough time.

Worse yet, though, Farquhar is now fighting for his life in the hospital, as he is in stable but critical condition in the ICU at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. He was helped by team medical personnel and on-site EMTs, and regained consciousness before he was taken to a hospital by ambulance.

That his teammates were stunned by the identification. He's such a resilient human being and we're praying for him and hope everything goes well. "As the group went around him, it just became a scary scene".

White Sox reliever Danny Farquhar pitches against the Kansas City Royals on March 31 at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.

Manager Rick Renteria said everyone involved did a good job with helping Farquhar get the attention he needed in the moment.

"Nothing really matters baseballwise when something like that happens", White Sox pitcher James Shields said. Thoughts and prayers go out to Danny and the entire White Sox family as he attempts to overcome this latest hurdle.

"He's definitely stable from that which we listen to, however, he's received a lengthy means to move and he'so rdquo, & battling; he explained". The White Sox have allowed 32 runs in their last three games and 10 or more runs in each of their last four games.

Chicago has placed Farquhar on the 10-day disabled list and recalled pitcher Gregory Infante from Class AAA Charlotte.
