The White Sox have placed 26-year old lefty starting pitcher John Danks on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained right oblique muscle. Danks has started 15 games for the White Sox this year and he is 3-8 with a 4.21 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. He really got going in the right direction in June though after a very rough start to the 2011 season. Danks started 4 games in June and he was 3-0 with a 1.14 ERA and a 0.89 WHIP. The White Sox have called up 23-year old lefty Hector Santiago to work in long relief. Santiago has pitched in 14 games (all starts) in A+AA-ball this year and he is 6-5 with a 4.08 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. He has now pitched in 144 games (15 starts) in his first five years in the minors and he is 20-16 with 4 saves, a 3.78 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP. This will be Santiago’s first taste of the major leagues.
