TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Danny Farquhar took another big step in his comeback, and his family was in the stands to see it.

Farquhar struck out two and walked one during a scoreless inning Sunday in his first simulated game for the New York Yankees since collapsing in the Chicago White Sox dugout last April 20.

Yankees more interested in Nolan Arenado than Manny Machado? The New York Yankees have been discussed as a possible destination for free agent Manny Machado, but according to a report, Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado really has New York’s eye. 

Former White Sox reliever Danny Farquhar took the next steps in his recovery Friday when he threw his first major league bullpen session since he underwent surgery The hemorrhage was caused by a ruptured aneurysm after he collapsed in Chicago's dugout on April 20 during a game against Houston.

The hemorrhage was caused by a ruptured aneurysm after he collapsed in Chicago's dugout on April 20 during a game against Houston. "Just to think 10 months ago that I would be here, you don't know," Farquhar told reporters Friday at the Yankees spring training camp, according to ESPN.

''Extraordinarily successful being the fact that I wasn't thinking about anything besides striking everybody out,'' Farquhar said. ''I wasn't thinking about my helmet hat, I wasn't thinking about anything else. My focus was what it's been in the past. Just create swings and misses. That's what I call normal.''

The 32-year-old Farquhar is using a specially designed protective cap which includes Kevlar and foam.

His wife, Lexie, and children Madison (7), Landon (3) and Liam (1) took in the game from the third base side of an empty Steinbrenner Field.

''I saw them while I was warming up,'' Farquhar said. ''We talked about it. I told them I wanted them to be in the stands. Just to see my family, my kids so happy and just enjoying themselves, it gives me that extra boost of energy.''

Yankees Had MLB-Sanctioned Specialized Hat Made for Danny Farquhar

Yankees Had MLB-Sanctioned Specialized Hat Made for Danny Farquhar ​The story of Danny Farquhar is mesmerizing. Back in April of 2018, the 31-year-old collapsed in the dugout due to a brain aneurysm. Since then, he has worked his way back to baseball in the most inspiring of comeback stories, and most recently ​signed with the Yankees on a minor-league deal in late January. He was even announced as ​one of the 21 non-roster players New York is inviting to Spring Training. After the Yanks signed Farquhar, however, they had a specialized, six-ounce ​MLB-sanctioned cap designed with a Kevlar composite insert to protect his head.

Farquhar stable after ruptured brain aneurysm. Farquhar collapsed in the White Sox dugout after facing four batters, and the additional overnight testing at Rush Houston shortstop Carlos Correa and manager AJ Hinch also talked about the tragedy hitting Farquhar during the course of Friday's game .

Madison and Landon ran after fouls hit into the seats.

''They got all the balls,'' a laughing Farquhar said.

Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said Farquhar will have another simulated game later this week.

''The attitude he has about everything is, I think it's good for everybody to see,'' Rothschild said. ''It's kind of special.''

Farquhar struck out and walked Giovanny Urshela, and got a strikeout and fly against Francisco Diaz.

''Super encouraging to actually have batters with lots of coaches around that aren't trying to swing and miss just to bolster my confidence,'' Farquhar said. ''They're trying to impress coaches for their careers, too. So, to see guys step in the box and want to hit a home run off you and have that success that I had today, it's in the positive direction.''

All the outs came on 1-2 pitches. He threw 12 of 19 pitches for strikes.

Farquhar was not cleared to pitch again in 2018, became a free agent after the season and signed a minor league contract with the Yankees.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman with a big tease at spring camp: 'We're never a finished product' With the team he put together scheduled to all be here in less than 48 hours, Brian Cashman admitted his job is not done. While the Yankees GM would not specifically discuss Bryce Harper or Manny Machado, the top two free agents still available on the market, he said that he is still “making calls and taking calls.” “I am doing my job. Whether that’s those two players or other players, or players that are of significant name value (we need) to constantly be open minded to ways to make this work,” Cashman said Saturday morning before workouts at George M. Steinbrenner Field.
