Danks Eager for Bounceback Season with ChiSox
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP)--Having a healthy John Danks in the rotation means everything to the Chicago White Sox.

The White Sox were in first place in the AL Central last season for 117 days before fading in the last two weeks. A fully healthy rotation could have helped them go the distance.

Danks made only nine starts last season before undergoing season-ending surgery on his left shoulder on Aug. 6. It was a major setback for the left-hander, who had received a five-year, $65 million contract extension last offseason.

Danks says he plans to be ready for opening day.
