Chicago White Sox officials said Sunday that reliever Danny Farquhar remains in critical but stable condition after collapsing in the dugout Friday night and suffering a brain hemorrhage.

Manager Rick Renteria said he’s addressed White Sox players about it but is keeping updates brief out of respect for Farquhar’s family.

“We made sure they knew that he’s still in critical condition but stable and that the best thing for us to do would be to give them space,” Renteria said. “Let the medical staff do what they can do and then at the appropriate time, everybody will let us know when it’s OK to go ahead, and reach out and go see him.”

Farquhar, 31, remains in the care of the neurosurgical team at Rush University Medical Center.

“Besides him being a great teammate and part of this brotherhood, I have to be respectful of his family,” pitcher Carson Fulmer said. “He’s a brother, he’s one of our teammates, and we’re all here for him and his family.”

GIANTS: With an epic 21-pitch at-bat in the top half of the first inning against Angels rookie Jaime Barria, Brandon Belt broke the league record for pitches seen in an at-bat.

The at-bat finally ended when Belt flew out to right fielder Kole Calhoun.

CUBS: Kris Bryant left the game at Denver in the first inning after getting hit in the helmet by a pitch from Colorado starter German Marquez.

Bryant suffered a cut above his left eye from his sunglasses but showed no signs of a concussion, the Cubs announced. He will continue to be evaluated, the team said.

Bryant was hit for a National League-leading seventh time on a 96 mph pitch on a 1-2 count.
