I’m not sure if MLB.com has done this for other hitters in the past or if it’s a special thing for perhaps the most unlikely 50-homer hitter in baseball history, but they put together a video showing all 52 of Jose Bautista’s homers in the span of two minutes, 16 seconds.

It was weirdly mesmerizing, like one of those “Magic Eye” posters where you eventually see an image appear if you stare at it long enough or women’s tennis.

Awful news for the White Sox and reliever Danny Farquhar: the right-hander remains hospitalized with a brain hemorrhage, per a team announcement on Saturday. He’s in stable but critical condition after sustaining a “ruptured aneurysm [that] caused the brain bleed” on Friday.

Farquhar, 31, passed out in the dugout during the sixth inning of Friday’s game against the Astros. He regained consciousness shortly after the incident and was taken to RUSH University Medical Center, where he’s expected to continue treatment with Dr. Demetrius Lopez in the neurological ICU unit.

“It takes your breath away a little bit,” club manager Rick Renteria said following the game. “One of your guys is down there and you have no idea what’s going on. […] When one of your teammates or anybody you know has an episode, even if it’s not a teammate, something is going on, you realize everything else you keep in perspective. Everything has its place. It’s one of our guys, so we are glad he was conscious when he left here.”
