In an expected move, the Chicago White Sox have placed
left-handed starting pitcher John Danks on the disabled list as he continues to
recover from the shoulder surgery that ended his 2012 campaign. General manager
Rick Hahn told reporters – including Scott Merkin of MLB.com – that Danks’
timetable for return has not yet been set.
"He's going to stay back here on extended, make a
couple starts here, and as he continues to feel better and mechanically is in a
good spot, he'll head out on a rehab assignment," said Hahn, during a
16-minute meeting with beat writers. "It could be a couple weeks, it could

The White Sox want Danks to spend time in the minors to
focus on gaining arm strength and improving his velocity and command. He’s

Despite all the tremors around the division, the Chicago White Sox stood their ground.
They shuffled their front office, committed to their top two starting pitchers and split with one of their final links to the 2005 championship team. One thing they didn't do was make any splashy acquisitions, and if the perception is that other teams might have caught or passed them, well...
Left-hander John Danks has been put on the 15-day disabled list by the Chicago White Sox as he recovers from surgery last August.
Danks was 3-4 with a 5.70 ERA in nine starts, all before mid-May, and had surgery Aug. 6 to repair a capsule tear and remove debris in his rotator cuff and biceps. He has allowed 20 earned runs and 27 hits in 11 innings over four spring training starts...

There is know better way to start the baseball season off more than bringing an old friend of both Chicago White Sox and Kansas City Royals to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at U.S. Cellular Field on Opening Day. That old friend is no other than Bo Vincent Jackson, who is one of the greatest two sport athlete of all-time. Jackson spent 4 season with KC (1986-1990)...
Although the John Danks injury tale is far from over, we at least got our temporary answer that finally put the speculation to rest. But just as that resolved itself, two more prominent White Sox' members have little question marks surrounding them: Alex Rios and Jesse Crain.
