John Danks to begin rehab stint Thursday

John Danks was back in Chicago after his last start in extended spring training, which Dan Hayes took as a sign that he might begin his rehab stint.

Sure enough, Danks will make his first rehab start of the season on Thursday at Double-A Birmingham. Via Hayes, Danks said he'll likely need several minor-league appearances before getting up to speed, even if he is effective.

Cooper: Danks will need to pitch like Buehrle

From the Easier Said Than Done Files:

"John is going to have to pitch a little more like a Buehrle," Cooper said. "That would be the best example here because they all know Buehrle. You know Buehrle at one time was throwing at 88-89 (mph). The last three or four years with us he was at 82-83 but still but still found the way to do it. That is what I think (Danks) needs to do."

I don't think direct comparisons to one of the great command artists of our time is going to make John Danks' rehab process any easier.

John Danks heading to extended spring training

John Danks spent the first day of the season in the dugout with his teammates, but he and Rick Hahn detailed what's in the immediate future for the 2012 Opening Day starter as he tries to come back from shoulder surgery. It starts with a minor-league game in Arizona on Thursday. Beyond that...

Danks is struggling to regain his low 90 mph velocity that he possessed prior to surgery Aug. 6. But Hahn and Danks said there is no time table for his recovery and that he'll continue to stay in Arizona to pitch in extended spring games until he's gained enough strength and velocity to start a minor league rehab assignment.

"I’ve done all the MRIs and checkups I’m supposed to do, and nobody has said anything to me about an injury," Danks said. "It’s still working up from surgery. I’m not even seven months. I’ll be seven months (post-surgery) at the end of this week. We put a pretty generous or quick time table on it. I was disappointed I didn’t meet it. I truly thought I was going to be ready. We just ran out of time. We’ll be able to take our time the best we can, or they’ll try to make me take our time. I don’t anticipate it taking that much longer."
