White Sox designate Jordan Danks for assignment

2 Comments

To make room on the 40-man roster for Emilio Bonifacio the White Sox designated for assignment outfielder Jordan Danks, whose brother John Danks remains in Chicago’s starting rotation.

Danks debuted for the White Sox in 2012 and has logged 386 plate appearances in the majors since then, hitting just .227 with eight homers and a .629 OPS.

He’s also spent a ton of time at Triple-A, totaling 463 games for Charlotte during parts of five seasons, but Danks’ numbers there suggest he’s probably best suited for a backup outfielder gig.
