John Danks SP CWS 4 Months

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports the Marlins and White Sox have discussed a possible trade involving John Danks.

The Marlins are in a difficult position, stuck somewhere between a buyer and a seller. With their recent winning streak, though, it appears they've become buyers. Danks is signed through 2016, so any team taking him on would also have concerns about the $28.5 million he's owed over the duration of his deal.

Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports the Yankees aren't interested in the $28.5 million John Danks will make in the 2015 and 2016 seasons.

Danks will make $14.5 million in each of the next two seasons before becoming a free agent, and the Yankees aren't wild about taking on that kind of salary. It appears the White Sox would need to be willing to eat some of that salary, and it's unclear whether they'd be willing to do that at this point. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has reported the Yankees' continued interest in the left-hander in recent days.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

John Danks yielded just one run over seven innings but took a no-decision in Sunday's loss to the Indians.

He permitted seven hits, walked two and struck out four. Danks allowed an RBI single to Yan Gomes in the second inning and that was it, but he failed to pick up a victory when Javy Guerra served up a two-run homer to Gomes in the eighth. The veteran left-hander got roughed up in Minnesota last month but has overall been great since late May, posting a 2.69 ERA over his last 10 starts.

Against the Red Sox, danks relented eight hits and four walks while striking out four. Danks now sports a 4.15 ERA, a 1.38 WHIP, and a 79/44 K/BB ratio. He'll go for win number nine to wrap up the first half when he takes on the Indians in Cleveland on Sunday.

His final line was six innings, five hits, two runs, two strikeouts and no walks. He'll take his 4.26 ERA against the Angels next time out.
