Danks 'giddy' about throwing session
BOSTON -- There are countless more important moments on John Danks' resume than his throwing session from 90 feet on Monday. But with the southpaw going stir crazy during his two months out of action because of a left shoulder strain, Monday's 30 tosses or so felt like a no-hitter.

"Oh, I mean, I'm giddy right now and it's still sore," Danks said. "Just to go out there and throw and feel like we are making progress again, it's definitely huge.

"I needed something positive to happen. It was getting kind of tough there for a little bit. I don't know how much longer we have. But for sure we are moving in the right direction."

Danks will play long toss again on Tuesday, take Wednesday off and then try to stretch it out past 90 feet on Thursday.

"I'm definitely encouraged after today and tomorrow will tell us a lot," said Danks, who was placed on the disabled list retroactive to May 20. "We'll see how we feel tomorrow."
