News: Danks allowed four runs on seven hits and four walks over five innings Thursday against Detroit. He struck out two and was victimized by a pair of homers. Impact: An ugly outing for Danks, who had been questionable to start due to trade rumors. He ended up staying in Chicago, but White Sox fans and fantasy owners aren't too thankful, considering the 15 earned runs he's allowed in his last 16.1 innings.(RotoWire, )

News: Danks remains set to make his scheduled start Thursday against the Tigers, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports. Impact: Danks has been linked in trade rumors with the Yankees for the last several days, but unless the two teams conceive a deal in the hours leading up to the Tigers' afternoon tilt, the lefty will take a mound. Still, there would seem to be a decent chance that a trade could be made in the in the middle of the outing, which would likely mean an early pull for Danks. It's probably worth avoiding this headache altogether in leagues with daily moves by keeping Danks on the bench.(RotoWire, )

News: Danks tossed seven innings versus the Twins on Friday night, allowing four runs on six hits while striking out five en route to his ninth win of the season. Impact: After struggling through a seven-run shellacking his last time out, Danks was in need of a bounce-back performance Friday night. The 29-year-old southpaw came up with a fairly solid seven frames and cruised to a victory thanks to nine runs of offensive support. Even with a couple of clunkers mixed in, Danks has pitched well over the past couple of months. Dating back to May 24, he is 6-2 with a 3.56 ERA and 1.26 WHIP across a dozen starts.(RotoWire, )

News: Danks had his worst start of the year Sunday, allowing seven runs on 12 hits in just 4.1 innings against the Astros. Impact: He was spared the loss thanks to a resurgent White Sox offense, but it was still his shortest start of the year. He allowed two home runs for the second time this month, and he is on pace to allow 24 or so on the season. His next start should come Friday in Minnesota.(RotoWire, )
