Chicago White Sox pitcher Danny Farquhar suffered a brain hemorrhage Friday night and fainted in the dugout during Friday’s game against the Houston Astros and is in critical condition, the team announced Saturday.
Farquhar, 31, suffered a ruptured aneurysm that caused the brain bleed, according to the team. He is stable, the team says, but remains in the neurosurgical intensive care unit at RUSH University Medical Center.
The team placed Farquhar on the 10-day disabled list Saturday.
Farquhar faced four batters in the top of the sixth inning, and then passed out after the inning. White Sox medical staff and emergency medical personnel attended to him before he was taken to the hospital.
The team said Friday that Farquhar remained conscious during his transport to the hospital.
