CHICAGO -- The White Sox optioned outfielder Jordan Danks to Triple-A Charlotte following Thursday's 3-2 win over the Orioles, and will make a corresponding move before their game Friday in Tampa Bay.
Danks is batting .135 (5-for-37) in 32 games over two stints with the Sox this year. He appeared in 23 games after being recalled from Charlotte for the second time on June 2, and has gone 2-for-22 since.
"We're just making a different move. It's nothing he's done," manager Robin Ventura said. "We've got to go give him at-bats. It's not easy sitting around and expecting to do well with one hit every two weeks. That's the tough part of the game."
Ventura said the corresponding move would be for a position player.
