White Sox and Danks agree to extension
The Chicago White Sox and pitcher John Danks have agreed in principle on a contract extension for five years and $65 million and will likely be announced after Christmas, assuming Danks passes a physical.
A 15-game winner in 2010, Danks slumped last season and was 8-12 with a 4.33 ERA. The left-hander reportedly was on the trade market, but now, it appears the White Sox might try to rebuild with him after ace Mark Buehrle signed with the Miami Marlins.
Danks would have been eligible for free agency after next season.
