(WSCR) The White Sox have been noticeably silent on the health status of John Danks, who hasn’t made an appearance for the White Sox since May 19.
That changed Thursday, however, when White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper joined The Mully And Hanley Show on 670 The Score.

“John is not feeling so hot, his shoulder is not feeling so good, we’ve made minimal progress with it and from my standpoint — and I don’t mean this fully, I love John — he’s not on my radar right now,” Cooper said on the show. “I mean, we’ve got 12 other guys that force your attention and until John gets close and until John gets going, he’s kind of out of my mind and I don’t mean that in a bad way.”
That’s not a good sign for the White Sox, who are shorthanded with both Danks and Philip Humber on the disabled list.
Cooper said he would love to have Danks back, but it “doesn’t look like that’s happening within the next two-to-three weeks at least.”
