MLBTR:

The Yankees like John Danks and the White Sox like many Yankees prospects, particularly Austin Romine. However, Danks is a free agent after 2012 and the Yankees are reluctant to over-spend on a pitcher they’ll have for just one year.

Romine got 20 PAs with the Yankees in 2011. Here are his minor-league stats:

If Kenny trades John Danks he better ask for someone with a career minor-league OBP higher than .333. A higher ISOP [ISOP=SLG-BA] too.
