Danish was released by the Mariners on Friday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Danish recorded an awful 21.26 ERA in 15.2 innings for Triple-A Tacoma prior to earning his release. He's still just 24 years old and has 13 major-league innings under his belt, but his next organization will clearly have to fix something with him if he's to make it back to the big leagues.
The Mariners reassigned Danish to their minor-league camp Sunday, the Associated Press reports.
Danish made seven appearances out of the White Sox bullpen in 2018, giving up five earned runs across 6.1 innings. After being outrighted by Chicago last September, Danish latched on with the Mariners on a minor-league pact in the offseason, but never made much of a case for an Opening Day relief job. He's expected to open the upcoming campaign at Triple-A Tacoma.
Danish posted Wednesday on his personal Twitter account that he agreed to a contract with the Mariners.
The particulars of Danish's contract aren't known, but he'll likely join Seattle on a minor-league deal that includes an invitation to spring training. The 24-year-old reliever has made 11 appearances in the majors with the White Sox over parts of the past three seasons, accruing a 4.85 ERA and 2.31 WHIP.
Danish was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
In terms of roster composition, this move comes as a bit of a surprise, as no corresponding move was made. There is some speculation that this could be a move to allow a new pitcher to come up from the minors to start Tuesday's contest against Kansas City, though things are a bit unclear on that front. Regardless, Danish's past struggles in the big leagues and lower standing in the organization make him even less appealing than he was before from a fantasy perspective.
Danish was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday.
Danish will head back to the minors to free up a roster spot for Tuesday's starter, Michael Kopech. The 23-year-old Danish struggled to a brutal 7.11 ERA, 1.90 WHIP and 5:4 K:BB across 6.1 innings during his first stint with the White Sox this season.
Danish had his contract selected from Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.
Danish will journey to the big leagues for the first time in 2018 after getting added to the White Sox's 40-man roster prior to Friday's series opener versus Toronto. The right-hander had been deployed as a multi-inning reliever with Charlotte this year, accumulating a 3.06 ERA with 46 strikeouts across 64.2 innings. He will likely be used in a similar capacity with Chicago.
Danish was outrighted off the White Sox's 40-man roster Monday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
A second-round pick in 2013, he posted an unsightly 5.47 ERA and just 71 strikeouts in 138.1 innings with Triple-A Charlotte in 2017, marking his third straight minor-league season with an ERA over 5.00 and a K/9 under 6.0. The White Sox decided Danish's 40-man spot would be better utilized on another player who might otherwise have been lost to the Rule 5 draft.
Danish will be sidelined for 7-to-10 days while recovering from a dislocated left shoulder, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Danish suffered the injury in a multi-car collision Monday night, and thankfully, the shoulder ailment was the only issue Danish walked away with. The 22-year-old is likely done for the year; he finished his season with a 5.47 ERA and 71:47 K:BB through 138.1 innings with Triple-A Charlotte.
Danish was returned to Triple-A Charlotte after his spot start Saturday.
The young right-hander performed well in his first career major-league start, tossing five shutout innings while allowing three hits and six walks against the Tigers. Nonetheless, his stay is a short one and he'll head back to Charlotte, where he has compiled a solid 3.15 ERA over eight starts this season. Look for Danish to be in line for a potential call-up later this season if the need arises.
Danish (1-0) pitched five shutout innings on three hits and six walks while striking out six to earn the win Saturday against the Tigers.
Danish was added as the 26th man to the White Sox roster for Saturday's doubleheader, and despite walking six batters, he kept the Tigers off the board, leading the White Sox to a divisional win. Since he's likely to be sent back to the minors after this game, his next start has yet to be determined.
Danish will start the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.
Danish had previously been scheduled to start the nightcap of the doubleheader. He will now face Detroit's Michael Fulmer.
Danish will make his scheduled start in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader after Friday's doubleheader was postponed by rain, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.
Added to the roster specifically for the doubleheader, Danish will have to wait a bit longer before making his first major-league start. Mike Pelfrey will pitch the remaining game Friday and Derek Holland will start Saturday's matinee contest. The 22-year-old Danish has made eight starts with Triple-A Charlotte this year, posting a 3.15 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP.
The White Sox added Danish from Triple-A Charlotte as their 26th man for Friday's doubleheader.
Danish will start the second game of the twinbill. The 22-year-old boasts a 3.15 ERA in 45.2 innings over eight starts for Charlotte, but he's struck out only 23 and walked 13 there. He'll probably return to Triple-A after taking this turn.
Danish will be called up to start Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.
The 22-year-old nearly cracked the Opening Day roster before ultimately being sent down to Triple-A. While Danish has a strong 3.15 ERA at Triple-A Charlotte this season, his inability to miss bats (23 K's in 45.2 IP) could make him vulnerable to hard contact if he's unable to dial in his command in Friday's outing against the likes of Miguel Cabrera, J.D. Martinez, and other big bats in the Detroit lineup.
Danish has been mentioned as one option to fill in for Carlos Rodon (biceps), who is expected to start the season on the disabled list, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.
General manager Rick Hahn and manager Rick Renteria got caught off guard by Rodon's injury, and their fill-in plans are pending a second opinion early next week. Hahn reiterated the organization's desire not to call up any of its three prized pitching prospects, particularly if that means having them shuttle between the minors and big leagues, which might be the case if Rodon misses only a start or two. That leaves Danish, fellow right-hander Dylan Covey and left-hander David Holmberg as possible stopgaps until Rodon is ready.
Danish was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.
The 22-year-old reached the Triple-A level for the first time last season, so this move isn't all that surprising. Danish held his own decently well against the big-leaguers this spring, sporting a 3.68 ERA in 7.1 spring innings pitched, so he could push for a call-up later in the season if he thrives in his first Triple-A campaign.
Danish threw a scoreless inning in his spring debut, allowing one hit while striking out one and walking one against the Reds on Tuesday.
Danish looks to be making a strong recovery after undergoing season-ending knee surgery last August. The White Sox will continue to ease him back into things, and although they haven't said if the 22-year-old will be ready to go by Opening Day, it seems likely based on his current throwing schedule. Assuming he is ready by the regular season, he'll still probably start out in Triple-A and work for a call-up.
Danish (knee) threw two live innings Tuesday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Danish underwent knee surgery during the 2016 season, but is reporting that he's felt good during early spring training workouts. The club has yet to say if he'll be available to pitch once the regular season arrives, but it would appear that the young righty is headed in the right direction.
The White Sox expect Danish to make a full recovery after undergoing season-ending surgery earlier in August, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Of course, the White Sox did not describe the nature of Danish's injury, but he had not pitched for Triple-A Charlotte since July 29. Danish split the 2016 season between Charlotte and Double-A Birmingham, and he made his MLB debut earlier in the summer when the big league bullpen needed a hand. It is hard to speculate as to when he will be able to return to a mound until the nature of the surgery becomes clear. He had already fallen off the radar in most dynasty leagues due to an inability to miss bats (68 strikeouts in 104.2 innings).
Danish was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte following Monday's game with the Tigers.
Danish pitched his way off the MLB roster Monday by giving up four baserunners and a run while recording just one out. The 21-year-old will likely return to starting in Triple-A, a level he's never pitched at after having been surprisingly promoted straight from Double-A.
