Yanks send RHP Farquhar to minor league camp

Postby thechampionrings » Wed Mar 13, 2019 11:22 am

TAMPA, Fla. -- Danny Farquhar has been reassigned by the New York Yankees(custom New York Yankees championship rings) to their minor league camp.


The 32-year-old right-hander, who collapsed in the Chicago White Sox dugout on April 20 because of a ruptured aneurysm and brain hemorrhage, appeared in three spring training games.

Farquhar gave up six runs, four hits and five walks over two innings. He did have a hitless inning against the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday in his second outing.

"I think he just needs to pitch," Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. "We saw enough that suggest he can get back to where he was. He just needs to go out and not be in a hurry to do it, because he's a lot closer than it may appear."

Farquhar signed a minor league deal with the Yankees(mlb world series championship rings) during the offseason. Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia threw 20 pitches Tuesday during his first batting practice session since a heart procedure in December.

Sabathia, expected to miss his first two or three regular-season starts, is slated to throw a simulated game Saturday. The 38-year-old, who is retiring after the season, had a stent inserted Dec. 11 after a blockage was found in an artery from his heart. He has had chronic right knee problems that required several operations.

"He's really responded well to everything," Yankee manager Aaron Boone said. "He's doing well." Sabathia also is suspended for five games for hitting Tampa Bay's catcher Jesus Sucre with a pitch on Sept. 27. The 2007 AL Cy Young Award winner with Cleveland, Sabathia is 246-153 with a 3.70 ERA and 2,986 strikeouts in 18 major league seasons. He was 9-7 with a 3.65 ERA in 29 starts last season. This will be his 11th year with the Yankees(championship sports rings).

Center fielder Aaron Hicks, who hurt his back during batting practice March 1, got a cortisone shot Monday. Boone said there is still enough time for Hicks to be ready for Opening Day. "There's a level of concern but I'm not too worried about it," Boone said. Acquired from Minnesota(cheap Baltimore Orioles championship rings) in November 2015, Hicks has been on the disabled list in all six of his big league seasons, nine trips in all for hamstring strains (three times), oblique strains (twice), shoulder, forearm and intercostal strains, and a concussion.
