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. It seems most conceivable that neither team was willing to bite the bullet on the $28.5 million owed to Danks over the next two seasons, though his consistency and veteran presence do seem to be coveted. Although...

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, who is 9-6 with a 4.40 ERA, is a lefty the Yankees would like to have, but with two years to go on his $65-million, five-year contract, his trade value may be somewhat limited. The Yankees have...

Danks remains a Yankee option in tough starters market for them

The Yankees are still looking at White Sox left-hander John Danks as a trade possibility in what appears to be a diminishing starters market for them. 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...
