CHICAGO (Fox 32 News) - White Sox pitcher Danny Farquhar was in critical condition on Saturday afternoon after he suffered a brain hemorrhage during a game.

Renteria said that Farquhar regained consciousness, had a strong heartbeat, and was breathing well when he was  rushed to Rush University Medical Center, where he was diagnosed with a ruptured aneurysm.

The Sox said on Saturday afternoon that he is in stable but critical condition in the neurological ICU.
