Farquhar, 31, collapsed in the dugout during the sixth inning of
Friday's game against the Astros after facing four batters. He
is in a Chicago hospital in critical but stable condition.
The White Sox said tests had revealed a ruptured aneurysm.
White Sox starter James Shields told reporters prior to the game
on Saturday the players were all suffering.
“It crushes us in this clubhouse, and nothing really matters
baseball-wise when something like that happens,” he said. “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. We hope everything goes well.”
Farquhar is 1-1 with a 5.63 ERA in eight appearances this
“He's alive, he's got a chance and that's what I'm hanging on
to,” said White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper.
