What point would that really serve? Danks is a better pitcher than Santiago who is still recovering from shoulder surgery, he's not going to rebuild his arm coming in throwing bullpen sessions. It should be painfully clear to everyone that the Sox need not worry about results in 2013 any more.
FWIW, if he qualified with innings, coming into this start Danks would be top 5 in the AL in WHIP and #1 in K/BB. So he's not exactly getting shelled out there.
