John Danks Injury: White Sox LHP Won't Be Able To Attempt Another Rehab Stint For 'At Least 3-4 Weeks'

Chicago White Sox lefty John Danks has a lot of work ahead of him, according to a report from Phil Rogers. Danks is going to have to work for several weeks just to get his shoulder strong enough to attempt another rehab stint.

The White Sox say that John Danks is going to have to strengthen his shoulder for at least 3-4 weeks before trying another rehab stint. He's got 4 years left on his contract, however, and his long-term recovery from what the Sox are calling a Grade 1 strain of the subscapularis muscle in his shoulder has to be the primary goal, not hurrying back to pitch in August.
