Info & MLB Debut Date
Contract purchased from Birmingham June 9 when RHP Mat Latos went on the 15-day DL.
MLB Debut Date: 6/11/2016
|June 11, in a 4-1 loss to the Royals. The last of three pitchers, he allowed one run on three hits in two-thirds of an inning, walking one. Of 16 pitches thrown, six were for strikes. Coming on in the top of the ninth with one out in relief of reliever Matt Purke (after starter Jose Quintana struck out 10 in eight innings), Danish induced a ground out from Lorenzo Cain, the first batter he faced, for the second out before walking Kendrys Morales. With Reymond Fuentes on as a pinch-runner for Morales, Salvador Perez singled to left field and Paulo Orlando followed with an RBI single to center, scoring Fuentes. Cheslor Cuthbert then singled to load the bases but Christian Colon lined out to end the threat.|
|Possessing the organization’s best changeup, Danish was called up on MLB Draft day, skipping past Triple-A, and saw his first action two nights later. Still a few months shy of his 22nd birthday, he returned to the Barons this spring after being the Southern League’s youngest pitcher there in 2015 when he went 8-12 with a 4.50 ERA in 26 starts, including two complete games, striking out 90 and walking 60 while allowing 175 hits in 142 innings. A tough kid who has weathered hard times off the field, he probably still projects best as a reliever, but he is continuing to get in his innings as a starter until the Sox have to make a decision on his full-time role. In 2014, he combined between two Class A stops at Kannapolis and Winston-Salem to go 8-3 with a 2.08 ERA in 25 starts, fanning 103 and walking just 33 while allowing 115 hits in 129.2 IP. In his pro debut between Bristol (Short-Season A) and Kannapolis in 2013, he was 1-0 with a 1.20 ERA in 15 games, striking out 28 and walking just five in 30 innings while allowing just 17 hits.|
