Danks expected to be ready for spring training

SHARE Danks expected to be ready for spring training

White Sox left-hander John Danks underwent surgery this morning to arthroscopically repair a capsular tear in his left shoulder. Minor debridements of the rotator cuff and biceps in his left shoulder were also cleaned up by a team of surgeons led by Dr. Anthony Romeo and Dr. Greg Nicholson at RUSH Medical Center.

The surgery revealed a normal labrum.

Danks will be immobilized in a sling for four weeks. He is expected to be ready for the start of 2013 spring training and will be on a regular schedule.

“He has your normal pitcher’s stuff [in the shoulder], but nothing that they felt they had to fix,” manager Robin Ventura said. “I know he’s pretty relieved as far as there was something there and they fixed it and he’ll be able to pitch next year. He should be ready in spring training.”

Brother Jordan Danks, a Sox outfielder, said he expects their off-season workouts to be as competitive as usual. “He’s already itching to get back,” he said.
