Kosuke Fukudome needs a disabled list stint for his injured rib cage and the White Sox have called up Jordan Danks to replace him.

In addition to being a 25-year-old outfield prospect Jordan Danks is also the little brother of White Sox left-hander John Danks.

Jordan has mostly been a disappointment since the White Sox picked him out of high school in 2008, but turned things around early on this season at Triple-A by hitting .302 with eight homers and a .934 OPS. Last year at the same level he hit just .257 with a .770 OPS and that was actually the best production of his career at that point.

Fukudome played a limited role for the White Sox after signing a one-year, $1 million deal as a free agent, hitting .171 in just 54 plate appearances.

    Dead ringer for his brother. Frightening.

      It took me longer than I am comfortable with to tell that isn’t John…..
