Chicago White Sox pitcher John Danks got in his third throwing session of the spring Wednesday, doing it in the covered batting cage because of inclement weather.

Despite the tight quarters, Danks still faced hitters in the batting cage throwing an estimated 55 pitches as he continued his recovery from shoulder surgery last summer.

After his last throwing session earlier in the week, Danks expressed a desire to be further along in his rehab program since his goal is to start the season on time without any delays. Pitching coach Don Cooper is understanding to Danks, but has no intention to stray from the original plan.

"Coop just told me I'm exactly where he wants me," Danks said. "I don't know what that means. I take that as I'm doing everything they want me to do, but I think I'm on pace to be ready to go. Like I've said all along, it's not my decision, but things are coming along great."
