Danny Farquhar isn't on the Yankees 40-man roster.


But the former Louisiana right-hander, who is making a comeback after a near-fatal brain aneurysm, has taken another step forward.

Farquhar has been promoted from extended spring training to AAA Wilks-Barre.

Lindsey Adler of The Athletic tweeted the good news.  She covers the Yankees for the Athletic.

Danny Farquhar is joining the Triple A RailRiders this week after spending the first part of the season in extended spring training. Says his arm strength is there and he's "pitching like my old self again."

This is great news for Danny.  We ask that you continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers as he tries to do what was the unthinkable after he collapsed in the White Sox dugout last season.
