White Sox place Danks on disabled list

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- As expected, White Sox left-hander John Danks was placed on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to March 22) to continue his recovery from left shoulder surgery.

Danks is staying in Arizona for extended spring training to pitch in minor league games to build up arm strength. He had surgery in August and pitched in four Cactus League games without much success.

"Danks, there's really not a time frame on,'' general manager Rick Hahn said Tuesday. "He's going to stay back here on extended, make a couple starts here, and as he continues to feel better and mechanically is in a good spot, he'll head out on a rehab assignment (at AAA Charlotte). It could be a couple weeks, it could be longer. It's based on how John feels and how the ball is coming out of his hand.''

Left-hander Leyson Septimo was placed on the 15-day DL with a left shoulder strain and lefty David Purcey was reassigned to minor-league camp. The Sox have 31 players left in major-league camp.
