White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper: John Danks could be back in one month

Publish date:

On the Comcast Chicago pregame show before Wednesday's intracity battle against the Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper said that left-hander John Danks could be back with the team by the third week of July, or about a month from now.


That would be quicker than indicated in many of Monday's reports on Danks' injury, a Grade 1 strain of his subscapularis muscle, which said that he might not begin a rehabilitaion assignment until that time.

In the meantime, the White Sox rotation will feature two youngsters (Chris Sale and rookie Jose Quintana), an injury-prone veteran (Jake Peavy) and two others who were candidates to be dropped from the rotation (Philip Humber and Gavin Floyd).
