|White Sox, Danks Agree to Contract
|CHICAGO (AP) _ The Chicago White Sox have agreed to a $3.45 million, one-year contract with left-hander John Danks, their final player in arbitration.
The 24-year-old Danks was 13-11 with a 3.77 ERA in 32 starts last season while pitching a career-high 200 1-3 innings.
Danks was 12-9 in 2008 and 6-13 in 2007, the first season after the White Sox acquired him from Texas. He has a 31-33 major league record with a 4.06 ERA.
He is expected to be a key member of the 2010 rotation that also will include Jake Peavy, Mark Buehrle and Gavin Floyd.
Chicago settled earlier with closer Bobby Jenks ($7.5 million), outfielder Carlos Quentin ($3.25 million) and reliever Tony Pena ($1.2 million).
