Former UL Baseball Star Danny Farquhar Continues To Progress
Former Louisiana Ragin' Cajun standout Danny Farquhar continues his incredible, inspirational comeback attempt.
This is great news! Very encouraging!
After all, most were just concerned about Farquhar's well-being, as they should have been, after the incident.
Now, here he is, making great strides in his bid to make it back to Major League Baseball.
Farquhar did well too recording two strikeouts, a walk, and a fly out to the four live batters he faced.
The 32-year old Farquhar passed out in the sixth inning of a game against the Houston Astros last April.
Tests revealed a brain hemorrhage caused by a ruptured aneurysm, for which Farquhar had surgery.
A starter and reliever for the Cajuns from 2006-08, Farquhar compiled a 15-10 record with eleven saves, while striking out 253 batters in 226 career innings.
A native of Pembroke Pines, Florida, Farquhar was drafted in the 10th round of the 2008 MLB Amateur Draft by the Toronto Blue Jays, after his college days with UL.
In parts of seven seasons in Major League Baseball, with the Seattle Mariners, Tampa Bay Rays, and White Sox, Farquhar has appeared in 253 games, all as a reliever, going 7-14 with 18 saves and a 3.93 ERA.
We hope Danny continues to progress, and we hope to see him back in Major League Baseball very soon!
