White Sox Promote Jordan Danks With Kosuke Fukudome Ailing

The Chicago White Sox promoted outfielder Jordan Danks to the MLB roster on Thursday, according to Mark Gonzalez of the Chicago Tribune. Danks has struggled with a high strikeout rate for most of his career as a White Sox prospect, but with Kosuke Fukudome out (ribcage injury) Chicago is looking for another outfielder to throw in the mix and Danks brings plus defense at multiple positions. In 2012, Danks has posted a career-high .419 on-base percentage over 234 plate appearances at Triple-A Charlotte, and he has amassed a very respectable .302/.419/.516 triple-slash batting line overall.

Danks will join the team on Thursday and is expected to be available for the finale of the team's three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays that same night.
