From Mark Gonzales’s ‘Kenny’s off-season plans’ article:

[Jordan] Danks, 22, wasn’t projected to reach the majors until 2011, but his progress in the AFL caused team officials to consider him as no worse than a potential mid-season call-up. Scouts who have seen Danks this fall are impressed with his skills but are curious to see how he’ll adjust to inside pitches. Rick Hahn and Dan Fabian, two of general manager Ken Williams’ most trusted aides, spent last week watching Danks and other Sox players in the AFL.  The Sox don’t have to include Danks when 40-man rosters must be finalized on Nov. 20 because Danks has less than four years of professional experience. But he could have played himself into an invitation to major league spring training, as did Gordon Beckham did after an impressive showing in the AFL. …

Gonzales has more on Jermaine Dye, Scott Podsednik, Mark Kotsay,  Ramon Castro, Octavio Dotel, and Bobby Jenks.
