The White Sox lefty has struggled this season. It could be the result of shoulder soreness, which is sending him to the DL.

The Chicago White Sox' John Danks has had a rough go of it this season.

On Sunday against the Chicago Cubs, though, he had his best start of the season, allowing no runs in 6⅓ innings. Manager Robin Ventura lifted him after 83 pitches, and now we know why:

This, though, sounds pretty ominous:

June 4 would be the earliest date Danks could return, but if he felt soreness in an area he'd never felt discomfort before, that could indicate a more serious issue. In the meantime:

That's Jose Quintana, who threw 5⅔ innings of scoreless relief for the White Sox in the first game of a makeup doubleheader against the Indians on May 7 in his major-league debut.

And now you know all there is to know about the White Sox' moves as of today.
