White Sox left-hander John Danks felt renewed discomfort in his throwing shoulder after making a start last week at Triple-A Charlotte, but a visit with Dr. Lewis Yocum this weekend turned up “no bad news” and the starter should be cleared to resume his rehab work at some point in the near future.

Danks is still dealing with inflammation and could need more than a week of rest, but the good news is he has no major structural damage. The 27-year-old had a 5.70 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in 53 2/3 innings this season before experiencing the shoulder issues.
