Chicago White Sox right-hander Danny Farquhar has been released from a Chicago hospital following a brain hemorrhage he suffered on April 20, the team announced on Monday via Twitter.

Farquhar, 31, suffered the injury in the dugout on the 20th, just moments after he left the game after allowing two earned runs in two-thirds of an inning.

Here’s the announcement the White Sox made upon the news breaking of Farquhar’s injury:

While Farquhar is highly unlikely to return to the mound this season, the fact he’s alive and well is undoubtedly great news after spending nearly 2.5 weeks in the hands of medical professionals. In a situation like this, all that matters is his life, and it’s very much in tact.

Following the news of Farquhar’s scary situation, several team accounts and individual players offered their well wishes:

Once again, amazing news.

We here at Home Run Daily hope for a speedy and full recovery for Farquhar, so that he’s back on the mound as soon as possible, which will more than likely be in 2019. Also, a huge shoutout to the medical professionals at RUSH University Medical Center. It’s certainly not easy doing what they do, as it takes an immense level of knowledge and mental toughness to remain focused when lives are on the line.

Get well and take it easy, Danny. We’re all behind you!
