(WSCR) White Sox pitcher John Danks is done for the season, and will undergo surgery on his ailing left shoulder next month.

Danks, 27, was officially shut down shortly after the trade deadline. He will have season-ending surgery on Monday at Rush University Medical Center, according to an announcement from the White Sox.

The veteran left-hander went on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 20, after feeling soreness in the back of his left throwing shoulder.

Danks pitched in a rehab start on June 12 for Triple-A, allowing one earned run in four innings. The left-hander continued to feel soreness after his rehab start, and a subsequent MRI showed he had a Grade 1 subscapularis muscle tear in his left shoulder.

Before the start of the 2012 season, Danks signed a five-year, $65 million deal.
