|John Danks confirmed for Friday|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(5/22/13) White Sox manager Robin Ventura confirmed following the team's loss to Boston Wednesday that pitcher John Danks will start Friday against Miami, MLB.com reports.
Danks will be returning from the disabled list, where he's been with a shoulder injury. He had a 3.18 ERA over his four rehab starts but also showed diminished velocity. He had 15 strikeouts and 13 walks in rehab.
|Don't forget about John Danks|
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(5/22/13) With quality starters like Brandon Beachy, Michael Pineda, Colby Lewis and Daniel Hudson all being candidates for a DL stash in Fantasy, not many owners have had John Danks' return from a shoulder injury on their mind. However, Danks is expected to make his season debut for the White Sox on Friday against the Marlins, so it's time to give the lefty a little attention.
Even with the majors' most coveted matchup on hand, it's too risky to start Danks in most leagues right now, but with a 16 percent ownership rate, he is being overlooked in many deeper mixed leagues. A healthy Danks is a good bet to provide a sub-4.00 ERA. a WHIP below 1.30 and a decent strikeout rate. It's not exciting, but those stats can come in handy in a 15-team mixed league.
Though you probably won't use him right away, pick up Danks now in those formats, and you may enjoy some nice production in the not-too-distant future.

(5/21/13) White Sox starter John Danks seems lined up to start Friday against the Marlins, MLB.com reports Monday.
Though the White Sox don't have anything written in stone, it appears Danks will make his season debut versus Miami.
"We'll have a plan midweek and announce what the next step will be," general manager Rick Hahn said of Danks. "We'll have him around for the next couple days, probably throw a [side session] with [pitching coach Don Cooper]."
Danks has made four minor-league starts.

Rotation poker hands: AL Central
We're just about a week and a half from actual regular-season baseball, which means teams are beginning to round out their rosters and starting rotations. Just for fun this week, in addition to ranking the rotations in each division, we are assigning a poker hand to each rotation. Wednesday it's the American League Central.

|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)|
