Danish struck by liner, sustains bruised triceps

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- White Sox right-hander Tyler Danish was removed from Monday's 6-2 loss against the D-backs after being struck by a sharp line drive in his throwing arm. He sustained a bruised right triceps and was taken for an MRI, though the club doesn't expect it to reveal anything serious.

Danish was entering his third inning, when D-backs left fielder David Peralta led off the seventh with a rocket back up the middle that caught Danish squarely in the upper part of his arm. He was removed from the game almost immediately.

Peralta came around to score and that was the only run (and hit) that Danish allowed over two-plus innings. In three appearances this spring, Danish, the organization's No. 7 prospect, according to MLB.com, has allowed four earned runs in 5 1/3 frames.

In 25 starts at two Class A levels last season, Danish went 8-3 with a 2.08 ERA.
