(WSCR) In John Danks’ first game since May on Monday, the left-hander tossed two-plus innings, throwing 35 pitches, giving up one run and two hits.
For White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper, things are looking up for Danks, who missed most of the 2012 season with a shoulder injury.
“To make a long story short with John Danks, things are pointed in the right direction as we speak,” Cooper said on White Sox Live on 670 The Score. “We’ve got to continue on that course. First time out, (he) couldn’t have done better after not being in a game in a long time. Right now, he’s being judged on how he’s feeling and how he’s progressing. Everything is pointing in a good direction with John.”
