Additional exam set for Danks' shoulder
NEW YORK -- White Sox lefty John Danks was sent back to Chicago for further examination on his sore left shoulder and a diagnostic ultrasound will be performed on the area.

No additional MRI exam was needed, according to the White Sox. Danks is expected to resume his rehab program on Tuesday for the left subscapularis strain that has kept him out of action since he beat the Cubs at Wrigley Field on May 19.

Danks has played catch three times during the past week but was frustrated by the fact that the soreness in his shoulder had not changed. Manager Robin Ventura said on Sunday that he hadn't really thought about Danks' return in the second half at this point of his recovery process.

"Again, I think we're fortunate to be able to think that way with what [fill-in starter Jose Quintana] has done," Ventura said. "We want to get him healthy first, and it keeps lingering and lingering and you can't look at him as, 'We're counting on him on this date.'

"Every time we've done that, it's been pushed back. Just get him healthy, and Q just stays in that spot."
