Player Notes
John Danks got a no-decision on Tuesday, serving up six runs in five innings of work in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Advice: Danks was getting hit hard with regularity, starting early when he gave up a solo home run to Josh Donaldson in the first inning. He gave up seven hits overall while walking one and striking out five. The left-hander was hoping for better results in 2015 but they haven't come, as he stands with a 5.69 ERA, a 1.45 WHIP, and a 37/17 K/BB ratio over 49 innings. Danks will look for better results in a road start against the Astros next.

John Danks lost Thursday after giving up five runs in 5 1/3 innings against the Indians.

Advice: After getting off to a rough start in the first, Danks was able to induce a run-scoring double-play ball from Ryan Raburn. That made it a 2-0 game, but with the bases empty and two outs, it looked like Danks would at least hold the Indians there. Instead, Nick Swisher and Mike Aviles followed with back-to-back homers, making it 4-0. That proved to be plenty for Danny Salazar, and Danks is now 2-4 with a 5.11 ERA.

John Danks notched his second win of the season Saturday as the White Sox defeated the Athletics.

Advice: Danks yielded only three hits and struck out six. He's now strung together two very good outings since struggling mightily over the first five weeks of the regular season. The veteran left-hander will carry a 2-3 record, 4.66 ERA, and 1.37 WHIP into his next scheduled outing at home against the Indians. Danks still isn't a great fantasy bet.
