SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Left-hander John Danks has been put on the 15-day disabled list by the Chicago White Sox as he recovers from surgery last August.
Danks was 3-4 with a 5.70 ERA in nine starts, all before mid-May, and had surgery Aug. 6 to repair a capsule tear and remove debris in his rotator cuff and biceps. He has allowed 20 earned runs and 27 hits in 11 innings over four spring training starts.
Danks is entering the second season of a $60 million, five-year contract. The DL move was retroactive to Friday.
Left-hander Leyson Septimo also was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday. Septimo has a strained left shoulder and hasn't pitched since March 7.
Chicago reassigned left-hander David Purcey to its minor league camp.
