|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(8/23/15) White Sox starter John Danks had a rough day at the office Sunday, getting shelled for seven runs as the Mariners jumped out to an early lead and held off a Chicago rally.

Danks (6-11) has dropped three straight decisions after a three-game winning streak.

White Sox SP John Danks receives no-decision in Wednesday's start
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(8/13/15) Despite producing a quality outing Wednesday against the Angels, White Sox pitcher John Danks received a no-decision for his effort.
Danks allowed one run on five hits over 7 1/3 innings. He also struck out two and walked three during the outing. The White Sox won 3-2 in extra innings.
Danks is winless in his last two trips to the mound despite earning quality starts in each.
White Sox SP John Danks merely average in falling to Royals
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/7/15) White Sox starter John Danks has either been very good or very bad since mid-June. So at least his mediocre performance Friday night in Kansas City was something different.
It wasn't, however, good enough to prevent his ninth loss in 15 decisions. Danks allowed three runs on five hits in six innings with three walks and six strikeouts.
He faced just one batter over the minimum through four before falling apart. A walk and Alex Rios double in the fifth ruined his shutout and three straight hits to start the fifth, including an RBI double by Lorenzo Cain and run-scoring single by Eric Hosmer, doomed him to defeat.
Danks lost a personal three-game winning streak in the process.
|2014 summary: Pitching for a full season for the first time in three years, John Danks was not able to rebound from a poor 2013 campaign. The lefty did reach .500 with an 11-11 record after three straight losing seasons, but his 4.74 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 6.0 K/9 ratio were of little help to Fantasy owners.|
Playing time status: Danks made 32 starts for the White Sox last season, and unless his performance deteriorates further, he should be used similarly again in 2015.
2015 outlook: Danks actually finished the season strong with four straight quality starts, but he still allowed a lot of contact and struggled with control. Without some sustained improvement, he will continue to be a low-end option for AL-only owners.
