Blown lead makes outing tough for White Sox SP John Danks
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/27/15) The White Sox won their fifth straight in Boston on Monday night - no thanks to Danks.
Starter John Danks was rocked by the Red Sox to the tune of six earned runs on nine hits in 4 1/3 innings. He walked one and fanned two.
He certainly didn't take advantage of a four-run first for his team. That lead was gone by the second, courtesy of a two-run homer by David Ortiz and RBI double by Mookie Betts. Four straight singles in the fourth and Pablo Sandoval double in the fifth sent him to the showers.
Danks had managed three quality starts in his previous four outings. But he is still saddled with a poor 4.97 ERA.

|(7/22/15) Despite not allowing a run during Wednesday's start, White Sox pitcher John Danks received a no-decision during the 3-2 loss to the Cardinals.
Danks tossed 6 2/3 scoreless innings while not walking a batter and striking out five. He lowered his ERA from 4.98 to 4.66.
Danks has not lost a decision in his last four starts and has earned a quality start in three of those outings.

White Sox SP John Danks allows six runs in no-decision
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/9/15) White Sox starting pitcher John Danks didn't have his best stuff on Wednesday against the Blue Jays.
Danks allowed six runs on eight hits in just 4 1/3 innings of work. He struck out four batters and allowed a walk while picking up a no-decision. Danks got in trouble when he allowed four runs in the third inning, and then allowed two more in the fifth.
Danks (4-8) has a 5.30 ERA in 91 2/3 innings of work this season.
|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.
