JOHN DANKS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Danks’ Contract Bearable Until the Price is Right

Despite interest from the Marlins and Yankees (and possibly others), the White Sox were unable to unload lefty John Danks prior to Thursday’s non-waiver trade deadline.

Yanks and White Sox talking about Danks, but gap still exists

The Yankees and White Sox are still discussing John Danks as a trade possibility, but the latest word is the sides were still apart in terms of the package New York would send back.

Danks may be among the most likely rotation candidates for the Yankees, if not the most likely, as there's no evidence they're even talking to the Padres about Ian Kennedy. And several other available pitchers aren't possibilities...
