Updated: August 6, 2012 3:46PM

White Sox left-hander John Danks underwent surgery Monday morning to arthroscopically repair a capsular tear in his left shoulder.

Minor debridements of the rotator cuff and biceps in his left shoulder were also cleaned up by by a team of surgeons led by Dr. Anthony Romeo and Dr. Greg Nicholson at RUSH Medical Center.

The surgery revealed a normal labrum.

Danks will be immobilized in a sling for four weeks. He is expected to be ready for the start of 2013 spring training and will be on a regular schedule.
