Former Twin On The Move

Former Twin On The Move

A former Minnesota Twins hurler has become part of the trading deadline dealing.  With the non-waiver trading deadline fast approaching, the White Sox are selling.  The Sox have sent right-handed reliever Jesse Crain to the Tampa Bay Rays for future considerations.  Crain is currently sidelined with a shoulder injury, but was having a great season for the Sox.  The 32-year-old has a minuscule 0.74 ERA in 36-and-two-thirds innings this season, and has yet to surrender a home run.  Crain has been on the disabled list since July 3rd.  What the White Sox receive in return is dependent on the pitcher’s health.
