According to Padilla the White Sox made Danks several offers “not that long ago” and were rebuffed, so they haven’t even attempted to re-start the talks.
Danks is one season away from free agency and figures to earn around $8 million in 2012 via arbitration, so with general manager Ken Williams pondering a rebuilding effort he could be one of the White Sox’s most sought after pieces.
Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune writes that Gavin Floyd could also be on the trading block and, unlike Danks, he’s under team control for two more seasons. Over the past three years Danks has thrown 584 innings with a 3.92 ERA, while Floyd has logged 574 innings with a 4.17 ERA.
