John Danks in Chicago to talk rehab

CHICAGO -- Chicago White Sox starting pitcher John Danks returned to the team from extended spring training and will be evaluated over the next week.

Danks, who had shoulder surgery in August 2012, has been pitching against minor league players at the White Sox spring training complex in Glendale, Ariz. since the team broke camp on March 28. In his latest outing on Saturday, Danks pitched six innings with his fastball consistently maintaining velocity levels of 88 mph.

“I am better than I was the last time I was here (two weeks ago),” Danks said on Sunday. “I am seeing improvements each time out. I am ready to get out of Arizona.”
