John Danks undergoes successful surgery

CHICAGO - Chicago White Sox pitcher John Danks underwent successful surgery this morning at RUSH University Medical Center to arthroscopically repair a capsular tear and minor debridements of the rotator cuff and biceps in his left shoulder.

The surgery, which revealed a normal labrum, was performed by a team of surgeons from Midwest Orthopedics at RUSH, led by Dr. Anthony Romeo and Dr. Greg Nicholson with assistance from Dr. Charles-Bush Joseph and Dr. Nik Verma.

Danks will be immobilized in a sling for four weeks.  He is expected to be fully able by the start of 2013 spring training, where he will be on a regular schedule.
