White Sox announce new managers at Triple-A, Double-A

An update of interest, concerning a harrowing story of a couple of years back:

Former major league first baseman Ben Broussard takes over as hitting coordinator after serving as the leadership and development coordinator from 2018-19. And Everett Teaford is Chicago’s pitching coordinator after working two seasons as the assistant pitching coordinator. Former Whote Sox pitcher Danny Farquhar, whose career was shortened by a brain aneurysm during a game in 2018, is the pitching coach at Winston-Salem.

After returning from a brain hemorrhage, Danny Farquhar transitions to coaching

CHICAGO — As Danny Farquhar drove from Scranton, Pennsylvania, to his home in California, he realized that his playing days were over. He had to make the transition to a new job.

Farquhar gave it all in his attempt to make it back to the majors after suffering a ruptured aneurysm that resulted in a brain hemorrhage last year. He joined the New York Yankees on a minors deal, and pitched twice for their Triple-A team, allowing seven runs over three innings.

The Yankees ultimately released Farquhar in June.

“I was just watching the guys throw, they were throwing really good and really hard, and I realized how far behind I was,” Farquhar said on a conference call Thursday afternoon. “I put in a year-plus of work, busted my butt to get to this point. I was just really far behind.

Best wishes for him as he transitions into a new role in the sport.
