CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago White Sox reliever Danny Farquhar has been released from a hospital.
The White Sox say in a statement Monday that the 31-year-old right-hander is resting at home with his family after being discharged from Rush University Medical Center.
Farquhar collapsed in the dugout with a brain hemorrhage caused by a ruptured aneurysm during a home game against Houston on April 20. He had surgery the following day.
Neurosurgeon Dr. Demetrius Lopes expects Farquhar will be able to pitch again but says he won’t medically release him to throw in a game this season.
Farquhar is 10-15 with a 3.93 ERA and 18 saves for Toronto (2011), Seattle (2013-15), Tampa Bay (2016-17) and Chicago (2017-18).
The pitcher posted a photo with his wife, Lexie, on Instagram on Thursday to thank fans and his medical team for their support.
"Overwhelmed with the love and support that was shown to me and my family these past few weeks," Farquhar wrote.
Overwhelmed with the love and support that was shown to me and my family these past few weeks. Thank you to the @whitesox, White Sox Fans and RUSH University Hospital. My wife and I are blessed to have an incredible support system with both our families. I am home and healing and can’t wait to be back on the mound!
Farquhar visited his teammates in the White Sox clubhouse on Tuesday.
