John Danks to disabled list, Jose Quintana to be recalled Friday

John Danks will not be making his scheduled start on Friday versus the Indians. Instead, Jose Quintana will be recalled to start in his place. Danks will be going on the disabled list with "soreness" in his left shoulder.

Danks has not pitched well this season. In 9 GS, he's 3-4 with a bloated 5.70 ERA that's the result of too many hits, too many walks, too many home runs and too few strikeouts.

Quintana, who was promoted to Charlotte earlier today, made a brief appearance in a White Sox uniform earlier this month as the "26th man" called up for the split doubleheader against Cleveland. He acquitted himself well, entering the first game in the 3rd inning for a shelled Phillip Humber and then pitched 5.2 scoreless innings.

Against the lefty-heavy Indians lineup, the left-handed Quintana is the obvious choice to come up for a start.

Danks signed a 5 year, $65 million deal in the offseason and injury and ineffectiveness this early in the deal is a troubling sign. Robin Ventura is downplaying the injury, saying it's nothing serious and only appeared during Danks' last start against the Cubs when he felt "tightness" behind his left shoulder in the subscapular area. Danks left that game after just 83 pitches. Ventura expects Danks to be back after missing two starts, likely on June 5 against the Blue Jays.

Before making this weighty decision, the White Sox decided to consult medical staff and had an MRI done on Danks' shoulder. The subscapularis muscle is the major muscle in the rotator cuff.
