Danks, Sale put in work for White Sox
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(3/19/15) Injured White Sox pitchers John Danks and Chris Sale both threw Thursday, per the Chicago Sun-Times, as they work to get ready for the regular season.
Danks, who is continuing to stretch out his shoulder, threw a four-inning, 60-pitch session as part of his standard workout routine.
Sale, who is recovering from a fracture in his right foot, played catch and stretched his arm. He is scheduled for another workout session Friday.
White Sox pitcher John Danks throws simulated game Tuesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/10/15) White Sox pitcher John Danks was able to throw four innings in a simulated game Tuesday. It was his second appearance on the mound this spring, throwing 55 pitches, reports MLB.com.
"At this point, I'm more concerned about just getting pitches in and building up arm strength," Danks said. "I'm not real concerned about being in a game just yet.
"There will be plenty of opportunity to get in a game atmosphere. But it wasn't like I was facing slouches out there. I had some good hitters and was able to make some good pitches and get some positive feedback from that. It was a real positive day."
He is scheduled to make his first start of the spring Sunday.
"As far as I know. I just found out this one wasn't just a couple of days ago," Danks said. "Like I said, I'm not real concerned about it just yet. As long as I'm getting out and throwing every fifth day and building up arm strength, that's the name of the game right now."

|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/2/15) White Sox pitcher John Danks will start Thursday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers, according to the Chicago Sun Times.
Last Friday, Danks said his shoulder, which was operated on in 2012, was feeling better. In 2014, Danks went 11-11 and posted a 4.74 ERA and a 129:74 K:BB ratio in 193 2/3 innings pitched.
White Sox SP John Danks feeling healthier
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/27/15) White Sox pitcher John Danks has only thrown fastballs, changeups and a few cutters in his early bullpen sessions and live batting practices but said Friday that everything feels good, MLB.com reports.
"I'm certainly feeling better, healthier," Danks said. "But I've only been through this once now, so I'm kind of going into it blind a little bit. Like everything they said, it's getting stronger and I'm getting a better feel for things as more time goes on."
Danks had his shoulder checked extensively during his yearly physical as has become customary since his arthroscopic surgery in 2012. He went 11-11 with a 4.74 ERA and 129:74 K:BB ratio in 193 2/3 innings last season.
White Sox want John Danks to cut down on home runs
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(2/23/15) White Sox LHP John Danks said that his 2012 shoulder surgery can no longer be blamed for inconsistency.
Danks hopes to improve his fastball command this season to help hold up the back end of the White Sox rotation.
That's what gets me in trouble," Danks told Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune. "When my fastball gets over the middle of the plate, it's not strong enough to get away with as it was in the past. The main focus has been trying to get more life on the fastball. Command with four pitches, that's my game now."
Sox manager Robin Ventura wants Danks to continue to eat innings, saving wear and tear on the bullpen. Ventura said Danks' keys to success were, "Keeping the ball down late in the game, especially in our park, keeping it in the park."
|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.
