Danks feels as good as results would indicate

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Dodgers only were able to muster one hit off John Danks over five innings during a 6-1 victory for the White Sox on Sunday at Camelback Ranch. Danks also fanned two and walked three, as he took another step toward his Game 3 regular-season start in Cleveland.

"I feel like I can throw most my pitches," said Danks, who threw another 12-15 pitches in the bullpen after he exited from the game. "There were a couple of instances where I got lucky, but for the most part I felt good. I was able to throw the ball in to righties a lot better than I have all of camp.

"It showed with all the broken bats -- I think there were like two or three broken bats. Everything is progressing right on track. That's where I need to be."

Danks also showed pride in the strong Spring Training performance turned by his younger brother, Jordan, who hit a grand slam during Sunday's 11-8 "B" game victory over the Indians.

"Yeah, he's having a great camp," said John of his brother, who had two hits and a run scored Sunday morning. "I think he's progressing and getting closer to where people thought he would be at this point. I'm thrilled to death with how he's doing. He's getting better."
