Farquhar, 31, came in for relief in the sixth inning, throwing 15 pitches. In the bottom of the inning, he lost consciousness in the dugout. White Sox medical staff and EMTs came and took him inside the team clubhouse. He regained consciousness and was taken to Rush University Medical Center for testing.
“It crushes us in this clubhouse,” starter James Shields told the Chicago Times. “Nothing really matters baseball-wise when something like that happens. When you see one of your brothers go down like that it’s not very fun to watch. He’s such a resilient human being and we’re praying for him and hope everything goes well.
“All that maters is family and life. He’s a brother of ours and a great teammate.”
Please keep Danny Farquhar and his family in your prayers.
