Pedro Guerrero is out of the ICU following a brain hemorrhage

Associated Press

Yesterday it was reported that former Dodgers and Cardinals star Pedro Guerrero was near death. Today the news is still serious, but it’s getting better: he has been taken out of the ICU and is responsive to some commands.

Guerrero suffered a brain hemorrhage on Monday evening and was placed in a medically-induced coma. He still faces brain surgery to relieve pressure, so it’s still a very dire situation, but thank goodness the initial reports that he was near death were overstated.
