Yeah, I'm not sure I understand this plan. I know Danks went down to W-S and was tearing it up for 125 AB's (minus the K's), but he was much more advanced in all areas and I would have made him stay down longer to work on reducing those K's. I don't know why they wouldn't at least make him start in A+ and prove he's too advanced for that league. Hopefully, Buddy knows what he's doing with this guy.
