Danks Focused On Pitching, Not Trades

May 10, 2011 9:54 AM EST

White Sox pitcher John Danks is aware that the team may swing a series of moves if their play doesn't improve over the next few weeks, but he remains focused on pitching.

Danks has just one more year of arbitration before he becomes a free agent after the 2012 season.

"You know, I haven't. I'm more concerned about trying to get that first win more than anything right now," Danks said. "Like I said, it's a part of the game. I've been traded before.

"Obviously I love it here and don't want to be traded. It's something that, you know, if it did happen, I would deal with. But I want to be here, and hopefully we can turn it around so I don't have to worry about it."

Danks holds an 0-5 record entering Tuesday's start in Anaheim, but he has a 3.83 ERA.
