Chicago White Sox pitcher Danny Farquhar reportedly will be back on the field to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before a June 1 game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

According to Scott Merkin of MLB.com, Farquhar will throw out the pitch at Guaranteed Rate Field, where he suffered a brain hemorrhage from a ruptured aneurysm after pitching on April 20 against the Houston Astros.

Farquhar underwent surgery at Rush University Medical Center and recovered there for some time before he was released.

The White Sox announced on May 7 that Farquhar was discharged from the hospital and is expected to pitch again in the future, although he won't pitch during the 2018 campaign. Doctors did clear him to throw the first pitch on June 1, though.
