Analysis: The 31-year-old Danks was released by the Chicago White Sox in May after going 0-4 with a 7.25 ERA in four starts. He was in the final season of a $65 million, five-year contract that began when he was one of the game's most promising young starters. Danks was a first-round pick who went a career-best 15-11 with a 3.72 ERA in 2010. But he was plagued by injuries after signing his big contract, going 25-48 over the last five seasons.

Analysis: White Sox GM Rick Hahn said Tuesday that the team was planning on ending the left-hander's 10-year run with the organization. Danks has never been the same since he had shoulder surgery in 2012 and dropped his first four starts this season, prompting the White Sox to make a move. Erik Johnson was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move.
