If a lot of Danks' ineffectiveness was due to carrying the injury at the start of the year, it makes sense for the Sox to bring him a little more up to speed than usual in rehab starts.
Just a shame about Morel, I hope they don't have to do surgery, as once they do that, he'll never be the same. Also, it's rotten timing, as at least Crede had developed much more before his back became so troublesome. You have to wonder if this will limit his ceiling.
