Kevin Goldstein:

White Sox center fielder Jordan Danks never lived up to expectations at the University of Texas, but after receiving an over-slot $525,000 bonus as a seventh-round pick last June, he’s almost been a revelation. He was initially batting .322/.409/.525 at High-A Winston-Salem, and has since had little trouble adjusting to more advanced pitching at Double-A, posting a .308/.387/.442 line for Birmingham before being sidelined with a wrist injury.

“I came away impressed with him,” said one scout, “he reminded me of Jordan Schafer with a little less power and a little more hitability,” he added, while adding praise for Danks’ overall game. “He plays a very good center field, he works the counts, he does all of the little things; he’s an everyday big leaguer for sure.”
