White Sox's John Danks blasted in loss vs. Twins
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) White Sox pitcher John Danks couldn't make it out of the third inning Sunday, giving up seven runs (three earned) on eight hits in 2 1/3 innings while striking out three in his team's 13-3 loss to the Twins.
Danks (1-3) had delivered back-to-back quality starts after taking losses in his first two outings, and after cruising through two innings Sunday, he allowed hit after hit in the third, with Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe slugging a grand slam and the Twins added three more runs after the homer.
Danks owns a 7.30 ERA and 19:6 K:BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Reds at home Saturday.
White Sox pitcher John Danks strikes out eight in win Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) White Sox pitcher John Danks allowed three runs on five hits in six innings of work Sunday in Chicago's 5-3 win over the Royals.
Danks, who struck out eight and walked just one, only ran into two issues in his start. He allowed an RBI double to Mike Moustakas in the third to allow a run. Then in the fourth, Danks allowed a two-run home run over the right field wall to Alex Gordon to push the lead to 3-0.
Before he was officially out of the game, Chicago scored five in the sixth to put him in line for the win. Danks, now 1-2, lowered his ERA to 5.64 in 22 1/3 innings. He will look to keep rolling Friday against the Twins.
Royals-White Sox postponed due to inclement weather Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/25/15) The Royals and White Sox game scheduled for Saturday was postponed due to inclement weather in Chicago. Scheduled starters for the game, Edinson Volquez and John Danks, will have their starts pushed back to Sunday, pushing everyone in the rotation back one day.
Volquez has a career 1-1 record against the White Sox with a 4.26 ERA and eight strikeouts in 12 2/3 innings. Danks, meanwhile, has a career 7-1 record against Kansas City with a 2.63 ERA and 71 strikeouts in 109 1/3 innings pitched.
White Sox late rally gets John Danks off the hook, takes no decision
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/20/15) White Sox starter John Danks gave up three runs, two via solo homers, on Monday and left after six innings trailing the Indians before his team rallied for four runs in the ninth inning to win the game and turn Danks' loss in a no decision.|
Indians' Ryan Raburn and Brett Hayes homered off of Danks.
Danks allowed six hits, overall, striking out four and walking two.
Danks' next start is set for Sunday against the Royals.
|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.
