Danks plays catch, tired of sitting on DL
CHICAGO -- White Sox left-hander John Danks is getting antsy to pitch again, but there's still no timetable for his return from the disabled list with a Grade 1 strain in the subscapularis muscle of his left shoulder.

Danks received a cortisone shot on Friday and had a diagnostic ultrasound performed on the area Monday, but he hadn't yet spoken with doctors to get the results of the test when meeting with reporters prior to Tuesday night's game against the Rangers at U.S. Cellular Field.

Danks, who last pitched on May 19 in a win against the Cubs, resumed his rehab activities on Tuesday by playing catch off flat ground.

"It felt a little sore, but it might have been from the [cortisone] shot still," Danks said. "We're doing everything we know to do. Hopefully, [I'll] be back soon. I just played catch. It'd been a few days since I'd thrown. It went well."

Not being able to nail down a date for his return, however, isn't sitting as comfortably.

"This DL stuff is getting old," Danks quipped. "If I can just get over the soreness, that will tell us a lot, but hopefully it's soon. I'm champing at the bit and getting impatient now. I've been on the DL long enough and it's been kind of the same thing every day. I'm ready to just start playing."
