After losing Gavin Floyd to a flexor strain over the weekend, the Chicago White Sox will be encouraged by the news that John Danks is ready to make his first rehab start. Danks has been pitching in extended spring training but will step up to making a minor league start later this week. MLB.com's Scott Merkin said Danks feels that Gavin Floyd's injury may serve as "extra motivation": "That's actually what I said [Saturday] night when it happened. I'm ready. I'm ready to get back out there," said Danks, adding that Floyd's injury "was hard to watch." "Maybe that'll move the process along a little quicker, I don't know. As far as my recovery goes, I'm on the right path." Danks underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder on August 6 last year and Thursday will be the latest step in his lengthy recovery. He expects that the White Sox will want him to make more than one start: "I'm sure they're going to want a couple or a few," Danks said. "I think once I tell them I'm ready and they're getting the positive reports back from different coaches, we'll go from there." Danks had three solid seasons with Chicago from 2008 to 2010, posting a sub-4 ERA and double-digit wins in each of those seasons, but really struggled in limited time last season, his control deserting him as he struggled to a walk rate of 3.9 and a 5.70 ERA in 53.2 innings. Hector Santiago, who is slated to replace Floyd in the rotation at this point, is likely to end up back in the bullpen when Danks is ready to start.
