|John Danks roughed up by Red Sox |

(8/31/13) White Sox starter John Danks (4-11) ran into trouble as he suffered his 11th loss of the season Saturday night against the Red Sox. The left-hander permitted six runs -- five earned -- on 11 hits and one walk while striking out two over five innings of a 7-2 defeat.
Danks has surrendered seven earned runs over his last 11 innings pitched. He is scheduled to make his next start Thursday at Baltimore.
|If you want to give Johns Danks a pass for 2012 because of shoulder soreness, fine. That's a fair argument. But you'd still have to explain Danks' 2011, in which his ERA rose to above 4.00 for the first time in four years (and if you point to an oblique injury that took him out for a month, then we have to start wonder about Danks' durability, so it's a lose-lose proposition). Danks' value doesn't come from strikeouts, of which he doesn't get many -- it's from his steadiness in ERA and WHIP. They aren't spectacular, but, from 2008-2010, they were good enough to make Danks a deep mixed league option, because he pitched an average of 203 innings over that span. With two straight seasons of bloated ERA and WHIP, though, it's best to leave Danks to AL-only leagues on Draft Day. (Updated 1/8/13) |
