John Danks took a big step in his recovery from August shoulder surgery, throwing seven innings at Double-A yesterday.

Danks allowed two runs on five hits and one walk, striking out one. He needed just 86 pitches to record 21 outs and Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that Danks was working at 87-90 miles per hour with his fastball, topping out at 91 mph. During his career Danks has averaged 91 mph with his fastball, so that’s pretty close to normal.

He’s expected to make at least one more rehab start before potentially coming off the disabled list, but the White Sox rotation could definitely use Danks as soon as possible with Gavin Floyd hurt and Jake Peavy iffy due to back spasms.

    Yassel Puig hit a bomb so it isn’t like he allowed two runs to some nobody AA guys.
