He's now listed as being in critical but stable condition, and reports indicate that more information isn't being released at the request of Farquhar's family.

Farquhar has been in the majors since 2011 and joined the White Sox during the 2017 season.

Fellow White Sox relievers hung up Farquhar's jersey in the bullpen during Saturday and Sunday's game.

Farquhar, 31, is expected to remain in the hospital's neurological unit for the next few weeks, according to the White Sox.

Farquhar suffered a hemorrhage in the sixth inning of Friday's game, and was rushed to the hospital after passing out in the dugout.




White Sox relief pitcher Danny Farquhar remains in critical but stable condition at Rush University Medical Center after suffering a ruptured brain aneurysm mid-game.

Sox players met with manager Rick Renteria in the afternoon to receive the latest updates before resuming their normal baseball activities to prepare for the night game.

Shields said he has heard from several players concerned about Farquhar's well-being. I'm praying for him and hoping for nothing but the best.

The Sox did not provide any news on Farquhar on Sunday, but a source told the Tribune that Farquhar underwent a medical procedure Saturday night to relieve swelling in the brain. "EMTs came in and made sure they gave him oxygen and they got him on the gurney, and before he left he was conscious. Right now he's being treated, and hopefully it's all going to be good".

"This certainly shows the fragility of life and how we take every day for granted". But the focus is on Farquhar's health and sending prayers for him, his wife Alexandria and their three young children, Madison, Landon and Luam. At the family's request, the team is releasing no information on Farquhar's treatment.
