John Danks will be placed on the 15-day disabled list prior to Friday’s series opener against the Indians, and Jose Quintana will be called from Triple-A Charlotte to temporarily take Danks’ spot in the rotation.

Danks, 27, felt out-of-the-ordinary soreness in the sub scapular area, which is the back of his left shoulder, when he tried playing catch Sunday after throwing 6 1/3 scoreless innings in a Saturday victory over the Cubs at Wrigley Field. The durable starter talked to general manager Ken Williams, manager Robin Ventura and head athletic trainer Herm Schneider, and after a MRI was done on Thursday, they decided the best course of action was a safe one for a pitcher who had one previous DL trip last season with a strained right oblique.

… A trip to the disabled list, retroactive to his start against the Cubs on Saturday, means Danks will miss the Indians and then the series finale at Tampa Bay on May 30. If all goes well, Danks will be eligible to return on a June 4 off-day and then would face the Blue Jays at home on June 5 without any Minor League rehab work needed.

Here are Quintana’s minor-league stats over the last 2 years:
