The Chicago Tribune has details on what happened on Friday:
Farquhar entered to relieve Shields with one out in the sixth inning and faced four batters, giving up a double and a home run and recording the final two outs of the inning.
Astros manager A.J. Hinch said his players saw Farquhar vomit in the dugout. Sox pitching coach Don Cooper called it “shocking” when Farquhar lost consciousness, and Renteria said he attempted to keep Farquhar from falling over until trainers and emergency medical technicians quickly surrounded Farquhar, carried him into the clubhouse and loaded him into an ambulance bound for the hospital.
The Sox said Farquhar regained consciousness Friday night, but they did not say whether he had undergone any surgical procedures since then. A Rush spokesman referred to the Sox for all updates.
Farquhar is in his seventh MLB season. He’s been with the White Sox since mid-2017.
Our thoughts are with Danny and his family and friends. Hopefully he can make a full recovery.
