White Sox Trade Rumors: John Danks to the Yankees?

In today's White Sox trade rumors and news bulletin, the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees are currently engaged in exploratory trade talks regarding White Sox starting pitcher John Danks.

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, "there is no evidence the sides are close to a deal and may be in only the early stages of talks. The White Sox are looking for young players and prospects as they continue their rebuild."

The Yankees are currently without a left-hander in their rotation, and after losing four starting pitchers to injury thus far this season, are looking for a trade complement to recent acquisition Brandon McCarthy.

Danks is 8-6 with a 4.35 ERA in 2014 and could still garner a decent return via trade seeing that he is only 29.

With $34 million left on his contract that runs through 2016, the Yankees seem like the perfect fit in regards to their(almost) limitless pocketbooks and current need for a lefty. Such a perfect storm could land the White Sox a decent haul in return for Danks - a possibility that the White Sox have to be intrigued by heading into the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline.
