White Sox Trade Rumors: Chicago's Asking Price For John Danks Is High

The White Sox are open to moving a number of guys on the current roster, and left-hander John Danks is one of the players who has drawn the most attention from other clubs. According to John Heyman, the White Sox asked the Yankees for a pair of premium prospects in return for Danks:

for danks, seek banuelos AD montero from . cant blame 'em for trying. not serious yet, obvs. [sic]

Manny Banuelos is a 20-year-old pitching prospect who has already reached triple A in the Yankees' system. Jesus Montero is a 22-year-old catcher with a .289/.351/.493 batting line in two seasons at triple A. Both were ranked among the top 15 prospects in baseball by ESPN's Keith Law prior to the 2011 season. As Heyman implies, it's not likely that Chicago could pry both players from New York for Danks.
