Player Notes
John Danks was lucky to get a no-decision after allowing seven runs (six earned) in 4 1/3 innings as the White Sox won a slugfest against the Red Sox on Monday.

Advice: Danks was in line for the loss when he exited with one out in the fifth. He gave up nine hits -- including a two-run home run to David Ortiz -- while walking one and striking out two. The lefty had held the opposition scoreless in three of his last four starts, but still owns a poor 4.97 ERA on the year with a 1.45 WHIP and a 75/30 K/BB ratio over 108 2/3 innings. Danks will look for better results over the weekend in a home start against the Yankees.

Mon, Jul 27 Rotoworld
John Danks blanked the Cardinals for 6 2/3 innings, striking out five, in a no-decision Wednesday.

Advice: Danks has pitched 12 2/3 scoreless innings his last two times out, lowering his ERA from 5.30 to 4.66. We wouldn't expect his ERA to keep dropping from there, but at least he's justifying his presence in the rotation now.
