Danny Farquhar was discharged from RUSH University Medical Center on Monday and is resting at home with his family.

Fantastic news. Farquhar suffered a brain hemorrhage from a ruptured aneurysm while in the White Sox' dugout during an April 20 game. His neurosurgeon, Dr. Demetrius Lopes, will not medical clear Farquhar to pitch in 2018 so his brain hemorrhage can fully heal, but he does expect the reliever to be able to pitch again in the future.

White Sox and RHP Danny Farquhar avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.05 million contract.

Farquhar's control really abandoned him in 2017, but he holds a career 3.88 ERA and 300/106 K/BB ratio over 264 1/3 relief innings at the major league level. He was arbitration-eligible for the first time this offseason.

White Sox purchased the contract of RHP Danny Farquhar from Triple-A Charlotte.

The 30-year-old hurler appeared in 37 games for the Rays this season, posting a 4.11 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 33/22 K/BB ratio in 35 innings. It's not out of the realm of possibility that he could work his way into a high leverage role given the current makeup of the White Sox' bullpen.

White Sox signed RHP Danny Farquhar to a minor league contract.

He had to settle for a minor league deal, but Farquhar caught on quickly after being released by the Rays last week. The righty has had a rough 2017, but coming into the season he had a career 3.81 ERA and 10.7 K/9 rate. He'll be back up in the majors soon.

Rays released RHP Danny Farquhar.

Farquhar was pushed off the Rays' 40-man roster before the All-Star break and he is now officially a free agent. The 30-year-old right-hander posted a 4.11 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 33/22 K/BB ratio in 35 innings this season out of the Tampa Bay bullpen.

Rays sent RHP Danny Farquhar outright to Triple-A Durham.

Farquhar was designated for assignment by Tampa Bay near the end of June after posting a 4.11 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 33/22 K/BB ratio in 35 innings of relief. It's a mild surprise he didn't land with another team.

Rays designated RHP Danny Farquhar for assignment.

Farquhar tossed an inning of scoreless relief in Wednesday's loss to the Pirates, but that was not enough to save him from the DFA. Prior to the appearance, the 30-year-old right-hander had been pitching to a 4.24 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 33/22 K/BB ratio in 34 innings. Farquhar has had major league success in the past -- 3.06 ERA in 35 1/3 frames last season -- and could see some interest on waivers.
