Just under two years shy of his shoulder surgery, Danks has found a pitching style that suits him and is finally looking like the pitcher who signed a five-year, $65 million deal before the 2012 season.
Danks is now 4-1 with a 3.41 ERA over his last five starts, a shift that came with a few slight mechanical changes as well as a shift more toward the third-base side of the pitching rubber.
Home has really been Danks’ haven this year. He is 4-2 at U.S. Cellular Field this season with a 2.77 ERA in eight outings.
Against the Angels in his career, Danks has been better than his 3-4 record in 10 starts might indicate. The left-hander has a 3.20 career ERA against the American League West club in 64 2/3 innings.
