Gonzales:

Daniel Hudson will make his second major-league start Sunday against American League Central leader Detroit. John Danks still will get a chance to reach the 200-inning mark for the first time in his career. Danks, who has 186 1/3 innings, is scheduled to start Monday at Cleveland and on Oct. 4 in the regular season finale at Detroit. The Sox also clarified their previous schedule and announced that Jake Peavy will open the Detroit series Friday night, followed by Freddy Garcia and Hudson.

Also, Buehrle won’t be shut down:

[Ozzie] Guillen said that Wednesday’s start for Buehrle would not be his last of the season.

Cowley:

Minutes after Williams spoke, a source confirmed that all of the coaches that had contracts up after this season — specifically hitting coach Greg Walker, pitching coach Don Cooper, bench coach Joey Cora and first base coach Harold Baines — had or were in the process of signing extensions thought to take the staff through 2011.

There were whispers that Williams recently signed an extension that will keep him the Sox GM through 2012 — the same length of Ozzie Guillen’s deal — but Williams replied in a text that he would not comment on that.
