White Sox designate John Danks for assignment


White Sox designate John Danks for assignment

The White Sox designated starting pitcher John Danks for assignment on Tuesday.

Erik Johnson is expected to start against the Boston Red Sox on Thursday. Carlos Rodon will pitch Wednesday for the Sox.

Danks, 31, had lost all four of his starts this season and had a 7.25 ERA in 22 1/3 innings pitched for the White Sox, who acquired him in December 2006 in a trade that sent Brandon McCarthy to the Texas Rangers. The left-hander is in the final season of a five-year, $65-million contract extension he received in December 2011. He had shoulder surgery in August 2012 and has never rebounded to pre-surgery performance levels.

Danks, who delivered eight scoreless innings in a 1-0 win over the Minnesota Twins on the final day of the 2008 season to pitch the White Sox into the postseason, had a 79-104 mark with the White Sox. He was 48-43 with a 3.77 ERA in the four seasons before he received his extension.

The White Sox now have 10 days to try to trade Danks. He could stick with the organization if he passes through waivers and accepts a minor-league assignment.

The White Sox could also wind up releasing the veteran left-hander.
