I don't think so. All reports are that Danks does not have pain in his left shoulder but rather that he needs to build up arm strength. Remember, he only had the surgery 7 months ago. He will eventually build up that strength. I think he will be fine
I do concede that we likely won't see Danks pitch until mid-May or June. At that point, he should have arm strength built up to where he throw hard enough to be effective.
And I really don't see the comparison to Jaime Navarro. Navarro just pitched poorly -- that wasn't an injury situation.
