Danks has positive injury rehab
CHICAGO -- John Danks wasn't worried about the results as much as the process during his three-inning injury rehab effort for Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday.

Danks gave up two solo home runs over three innings against Gwinnett, striking out two and walking one, while throwing 31 of his 44 pitches for strikes. The southpaw felt no pain from his strained right oblique, which has had him on the disabled list since June 26.

"I didn't feel it one time. It was hot, too. That's good," Danks told a pool reporter after his start. "I can get out in heat. I let it loose a few times. I feel I'm over that mental hurdle."

Next up for Danks, who temporarily is playing with his brother Jordan at Charlotte, will be a start on Friday in Charlotte against Louisville. If all goes well, Danks will return to the White Sox rotation for the second series after the All-Star break in Kansas City.
