Indians give thanks to John Danks as lefty loses again
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The lefty-laden Indians lineup has struggled against left-handers this season, but White Sox southpaw John Danks has always proven to be the tonic for what ails them. Danks lowered his lifetime record to 5-12 against Cleveland on Wednesday with a performance manager Robin Ventura defended.

"I think Johnny actually pitched all right," Ventura told ESPN. "We didn't do many favors behind him. A lot of miscues lead to runs and they end up biting you in the end. We had a lot of opportunities."

Danks was lifted in the fifth inning after yielding three earned runs on six hits with two walks and three strikeouts. The big blow was a two-run double by Lonnie Chisenhall in the fourth as Danks fell to 0-2 on the season.

He will, however, have a chance to turn it around against the same Indians next Tuesday in Chicago.

White Sox P John Danks gives up four runs in loss to Royals
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

White Sox pitcher John Danks struggled on the mound in the team's 4-1 loss to the Royals on Thursday.

Danks went 5 2/3 innings giving up four earned runs on seven hits -- one of which was a home run to Royals catcher Salvador Perez. The left-hander managed to strike out only one batter.

"Yeah, I felt like I had better stuff than 5 2/3 innings or whatever it was," said Danks, who exited after just 75 pitches. "Made a couple of mistakes, but was able to also make pitches when I had to. I feel good going into my next one, per MLB.com"

Danks will look to rebound in his next start in Cleveland against the Indians on Wednesday.

White Sox pitcher John Danks will be team's No. 3 starter
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

White Sox pitcher John Danks will be the team's No. 3 starter when the season begins, reports ESPN.com.

Danks posted a 11-11 record in 2014 with a 4.74 ERA and 129 strikeouts in 193 2/3 innings.

"I'm ready to go," Danks said. "I wish the season was starting tomorrow and we could play games that count. I have to finish up [spring] strong and hopefully hit the ground running in Kansas City."

The team also announced Hector Noesi will start in the team's home opener, making him the No. 4 starter. 

"For me it's a normal game," Noesi said about the home opener. "I know it's the opening game at home, with the fans waiting for us. I just have to go there and do my job and get the win for the Opening Day."

Noesi posted a 8-12 record with a 4.75 ERA and 123 strikeouts in 172 1/3 innings last season.

Danks, Sale put in work for White Sox
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

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

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."
