Player Notes
According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Yankees remain interested in White Sox hurler John Danks.

Advice: The idea to acquire Ian Kennedy from the Padres seems to be losing steam, which makes Danks among the most likely trade targets for the Yankees to acquire. The veteran southpaw is 9-6 on the season with a 4.40 ERA and 1.39 WHIP.

John Danks picked up his ninth victory of the season on Friday, limiting the Twins to four runs on six hits over seven innings of work.

Advice: Danks punched out five on the night without walking a batter. Staked to a big early lead, Danks was in cruise control most of the night, throwing plenty of strikes and giving the White Sox bullpen a bit of a rest. He'll bring a 4.40 ERA and 1.39 WHIP into Thursday's matchup against the Tigers in Detroit.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees have checked in with the White Sox about the availability of left-hander John Danks.

Advice: There's nothing to indicate that the two sides are close to a deal, but Yankees general manager Brian Cashman hasn't made any secret about his desire to add starting pitching. Danks owns a 4.35 ERA and 87/46 K/BB ratio over 124 innings this season, so he's not quite the pitcher he once was. There's still around $34 million remaining on his contract, which runs through 2016. He has a six-team no-trade list, but it's unclear if the Yankees are on it.

John Danks allowed seven runs over 4 1/3 innings, but took a no-decision as the White Sox lost 11-7 on Sunday.

Advice: Danks has been prone to this type of blow-up outing, but had looked better as of late, entering Sunday's start with a 2.73 ERA over his previous four outings. The Astros were able to bang out 12 hits, including home runs by Matt Dominguez and Jose Altuve. Danks did not issue a walk and struck out four as he watched his ERA balloon to 4.35. He'll try to bounce back against the Twins on the road on Friday.
