John Danks Contract Talks Have Stalled

Via MLB Trade Rumors, ESPNChicago.com's Doug Padilla reports that Chicago White Sox have not made any long-term contract offers to starting pitcher John Danks recently because several of the team's offers were declined not too long ago. Padilla adds that the team hasn't given up on a deal with the left-hander:

The stalemate has increased the possibility that Danks could be traded, but indications are that the White Sox have not lost faith that a deal could be worked out with their left-hander.

But there are reports that Danks has drawn plenty of interest from other clubs, and the White Sox will listen to offers. Danks could stand to make between $7 and $8 million in 2012 after salary arbitration this offseason, according to Padilla
