Looks like you can take John Danks off the list of potential trade targets for the Yankees.

Tonight he reportedly agreed to a five-year, $65-million extension with the White Sox. Part of the motivation to deal Danks was the possibility of him becoming a free agent after next season. Now, with the extension, it seems the White Sox are planning to keep him in their rotation long term.

Meanwhile, one persistent rumor today has involved another popular trade candidate: Oakland lefty Gio Gonzalez. Multiple reports indicate that the Nationals are making a serious push for Gonzalez, and that they might be willing to give up the huge prospect package Oakland is said to be seeking.
