Danks starting Thursday
John Danks was scheduled to take the mound as expected Thursday afternoon at Comerica Park, despite rumors connecting the White Sox to the Yankees and the Marlins in regard to talks concerning the veteran southpaw. Danks has $28.50 million remaining over the next two years of his five-year extension, and can block trades to the Blue Jays, A’s, Orioles, Nationals, Cubs and Mets.
White Sox manager Robin Ventura reiterated pregame Monday that he didn’t expect the White Sox to make any moves before Thursday’s 4 p.m. ET non-waiver deadline.
