Another good session for Danks

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- John Danks threw his second outdoor batting practice session on Tuesday, this one 50 pitches, and will throw a bullpen Monday before pitching in his first game on March 4.

Danks, the White Sox 2012 Opening Day starter who missed most of the season because of a shoulder injury that required surgery, worked mainly on his cut fastball.

"My health, we all kind of agree that I can move on and start worry about pitching and a little less about the health of my shoulder,'' Danks said after his session. "We're pretty confident that is behind us now and I can just build up arm strength.''

Danks said he's getting stronger with each throwing session.

"We were a lot more focused on the breaking ball, the cutter especially,'' he said. "And it's still got a ways to go,but it's coming. Other than that, I felt good. I feel like I'm getting more behind the ball each time out.''
