Chicago White Sox SP John Danks (shoulder) will come off the 15-day disabled list to make his first start in more than a year against the Miami Marlins Friday, May 24. Danks had surgery last August to fix his rotator cuff and biceps. He made four rehab starts in the minors, and manager Robin Ventura will let Danks go deep into the game if he can. The team will decide in the next few days whether to remove SPs Dylan Axelrod or Hector Santiago from the rotation to make room for Danks. RP Donnie Veal was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte to make room on the roster.
Fantasy Tip: His first start couldn't come against a better team for owners looking for at least a spot start. Relying on Danks full time, at least initially, might be a mistake, though, unless you're in an AL-only league. If he proves that his dive last season was purely injury-related, he might be worth stashing in deep mixed leagues.

Chicago White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham (wrist) and SP John Danks (shoulder) are about a week away from returning.

Chicago White Sox SP John Danks (shoulder) will make at least one more rehab start, according to manager Robin Ventura.
Mon, 13 May 2013 11:34:21 -0700
Chicago White Sox SP John Danks (shoulder) tossed 101 pitches over six innings for Triple-A Charlotte Sunday, May 12, and he'll make another rehab start for Charlotte May 18 before the team decides whether to bring him back.
Fantasy Tip: It's probably best to temper your expectations for Danks when he initally returns to the White Sox's starting rotation. The good news is that his shoulder strength looks to be close to 100 percent. Put him on your deep mixed radar as he finishes up his rehab stint.

Chicago White Sox SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) will undergo season-ending surgery to fix a tear in the flexor muscle in his right elbow Tuesday, May 7. Floyd will also have the ulnar collateral ligament repaired during surgery, and he's expected to miss anywhere from 14 to 19 months.
Fantasy Tip: Floyd can be dropped in all formats, obviously. He's likely pitched his last game in a White Sox uniform, too. Hector Santiago should now be a fixture in the rotation until John Danks (shoulder) returns later this month or in early June. Jake Peavy (back) could also land on the disabled list, so there is plenty of opportunity for Santiago to stick in the rotation even longer. He should be owned even deep mixed leagues.
