Adrian Nieto, who caught John Danks regularly in spring training, caught him for the third time in as many starts Wednesday. It looks like he could be Danks’ personal catcher, at least for the near future. “From Day 1, it felt right,’’ said Nieto, the Rule 5 draft pick who hadn’t played above Class  A before this season. “I’m on the same page with him more than anybody on the staff so far. I feel like we’ve clicked.’’ Pitchers have praised...

John Danks will be White Sox’ fifth starter

GLENDALE, Ariz. — John Danks is penciled in as the No. 5 starter in the White Sox’ rotation. Think he cares about where he’s slotted? The only remotely upsetting thing about that for Danks — who’s eager to make good on his end of the five-year, $65 million contract the Sox gave him after the 2011 season — is that he must wait till April 5 for his first start in Kansas City. That’s going to test his patience, considering how strong and healthy he feels...

Ventura sets rotation order

Sometimes teams roll out their five best starters in that order, while sometimes it’s a matter of setting a schedule that provides better balance. Consider the Chicago White Sox as part of the latter strategy as manager Robin Ventura set his rotation for the start of the season by not only breaking up the three left-handers, but also making sure his most dependable starters aren’t pitching back-to-back. The White Sox appear poised to go with Chris Sale in Monday’s opener, followed by Felipe Paulino, Jose Quintana, Erik Johnson and John Danks.
