Jordan Danks update
CINCINNATI – The Danks family could breath a sigh of relief on Saturday, as the concern over the ailing wrist of climbing prospect Jordan Danks was announced as nothing more than a sprain.
According to head trainer Herm Schneider, the Class AA Birmingham outfielder was given a splint to wear for a week, and then will be re-evaluated.
Either way, the plan is to bring him back slowly.
The Sun-Times first reported that Jordan injured the wrist over a week ago on a check swing. It was bothering him enough to where they opted to fly him to Chicago on Friday for a full exam.
“He just said it didn’t feel right,” older brother, and Sox starting pitcher, John Danks said on Friday. “I look at the numbers almost every morning, and ever since he started complaining about the wrist the numbers had gone down. He was at like .340 and now .308. Hopefully, they can figure it out.”
Jordan Danks was drafted last season, but has been a quick climber through the system. There has even been some speculation that he was on track for a September call-up this season.
That remains to be seen, especially with the Sox still trying to figure out which direction they are going.
