White Sox to cut left-hander John Danks after 10 years

CHICAGO (AP) Sitting on top of the American League, the Chicago White Sox are going to try a new plan for one of their biggest problems.

Left-hander John Danks is out after a 10-year run in Chicago, and Erik Johnson will be promoted on Thursday to start against the Boston Red Sox. Looking to build on their surprising 18-8 start, the White Sox decided they had to cut Danks and search for a more reliable option at the back end of their rotation.

"This is about putting us in the best position to win ballgames going forward," general manager Rick Hahn said. "We feel we have a pretty special thing going on in this clubhouse right now."
