White Sox call up Jordan Danks

TORONTO — After sending right-hander Deunte Heath back to AAA Charlotte, the White Sox brought up outfielder Jordan Danks on Wednesday.

Danks, the 26-year-old younger brother of pitcher John Danks, was batting .333 (17-51) with two home runs, five RBI and nine runs scored in 13 games. He played in 50 games for the Sox last season, hitting .224 with a walk-off home run and four RBI.

Danks, who will wear uniform No. 20, had a strong finish during spring training after a poor start. He is considered one of the top defensive outfielders in the Sox organization. Danks is a left-handed hitter.
