Two days after he was transferred out of the intensive care unit of his Manhattan hospital, former Dodgers slugger Pedro Guerrero was able to talk, and move his arms and legs Thursday, according to a friend of Guerrero’s family.
Guerrero, 60, suffered a brain hemorrhage while driving to the gym on Monday in Queens. He was taken to the nearest medical facility that night and placed in a medically induced coma, then transferred to Lenox Hill Hospital the next day. Guerrero awoke from the coma Tuesday and has been steadily progressing since. A second source in contact with Guerrero’s family said that the slugger is now aware enough to recite his date of birth.
