Default Quintana called up, Danks not starting Firday.

Per Scott Merkin.

Let the speculation begin.

I guess Danks will be the new closer.

Danks has "shoulder strain"

Danks is going on the DL, according to this.

I think he hurt his shoulder carrying those huge sacks of money to the bank.

Seriously, Danks has looked off all year, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a physical reason behind it. Hopefully a couple weeks off will get him back on track.

Guess we know why he was lifted after only 83 pitches on Saturday night.

Mark Gonzales

Danks believes he'll return on June 4, said he felt soreness in area he never felt discomfort before (behind left shoulder)

RV also didn't believe danks would need rehab assignment

Danks had MRI this morning, said he was prepared to pitch Friday. "Sub-scap" is the word I've been hearing."

This would certainly explain the drop in velocity and erratic performances from Danks. Hopefully, he gets shelved and comes back as the real John Danks when he comes off the DL.

I've been assured on these boards that Danks was just a mental midget who couldn't handle the pressure of being an ace and signing a big contract. Doctors, what do they know?

Thank you for calling out those people.

As Kenny told Comcast Sports Chicago's Pat Boyle this morning the Sox will always be cautious when dealing with young pitchers whom Kenny called, "gold."

That being said it's a shame this happened with a big Cleveland series coming up.

The MRI did show alarmingly low levels of grit.

Did he say when he felt the soreness? He could be both --- a mental midget and injury prone.

Or he could be a pitcher who showed great promise in 08 and hasn't lived up to it since then. As for the injury, I'm not surprised the way he has struggled and lost some zip. Of course I hope he gets better soon.

Maybe Cooper will now push to move him to the bullpen.

Chuck Garfien

John Danks just threw a bullpen session. Went well, but believes he
might throw a rehab start before coming back.
