[edit] Biographical Information

Pitcher Danny Farquhar reached the majors with the Toronto Blue Jays in 2011.

Farquhar hit .436 as a high school sophomore. As a senior, he had a 0.89 ERA, a school record. As a college freshman at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, he was 6-1 with four saves and a 2.17 ERA. He led the Sun Belt Conference in ERA. In 2007, the sophomore went 6-3 with six saves, a 3.08 ERA and 115 strikeouts to 22 walks in 87 2/3 IP. He was 4th in the conference in ERA and second in whiffs. As a junior, he faded to 3-8 with a 4.95 ERA. The Blue Jays still took a gamble on him with their 10th-round pick in the 2008 amateur draft. He was signed by scout Rob St. Julien for $112,500 and made his pro debut that summer.

Danny split his first pro season between the Auburn Doubledays (2-2, 2.39, .215 opponent average) and Lansing Lugnuts (6 hitless, scoreless innings), making a good first impression. In 2009, he was a very effective reliever for both the Dunedin Blue Jays (1-0, 7 Sv, 0.53, 23 K in 17 IP) and New Hampshire Fisher Cats (1-4, 15 Sv, 2.36, .193 opponent average, 51 K in 45 2/3 IP). With New Hampshire for all of 2010, he was 4-3 with 17 saves, a 3.52 ERA and 79 strikeouts in 76 2/3 IP. He allowed only a .189 average but walked 42.

On November 17, 2010 Farquhar was dealt with Trystan Magnuson to the Oakland Athletics for Rajai Davis.

On July 23, 2012, Farquhar was traded along with D.J. Mitchell by the New York Yankees to the Seattle Mariners for Ichiro Suzuki.
