"Obviously, I've been throwing to A.J. 99 percent of my starts, but it's one of those things that, at this point in the season, we have a pretty good idea of what we're trying to do," White Sox starter John Danks said. "Tyler [Flowers] and Donny [Lucy] are right there, they know.
"Having guys like A.J. stick around or [pitching coach Don Cooper] or [Mark] Buehrle, guys that know what we're trying to accomplish and how we're going to do it, will only help. I don't anticipate the pitching tanking because A.J. is out. We can pick up where we left off. It'll be different, but it won't be a huge difference."
General manager Ken Williams expressed the utmost confidence in Tyler Flowers' game calling and defense behind the plate.
