On Thursday, the Chicago White Sox officially announced that the team has signed John Danks to a five-year extension, and MLB.com's Scott Merkin later shared an interesting detail about the deal:
has learned Danks has full no-trade in first year of deal, limited no-trade over next four years. More to come.
This is somewhat surprising given that Danks' name had come up in plenty of offseason trade rumors before he signed this extension with the Sox, and even after the news broke there was a sentiment that he could still be on the trading block. But it does not appear that Danks will be sold as part of a rebuilding effort anytime soon.
