Crain plays catch, ready for bullpen session
CHICAGO -- Jesse Crain played catch Tuesday for the first time since being put on the disabled list, retroactive to April 21, with a strained left oblique. The next step for the right-handed reliever is to throw a side session Thursday.

"He still feels some stuff," said White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper. "He feels it a little bit, but it was nothing. I don't think we've lost any time."

Crain is eligible to come off the disabled list Sunday in Detroit. But there could be an injury rehab appearance before Crain's return.

"We haven't discussed it much further than that as to do we do it that day, do we send him out?" Cooper said. "Is he going to be OK after these two sidelines to go back into a Major League game or does [White Sox general manager] Kenny [Williams], [assistant general manager] Rick [Hahn] combined with [head athletic trainer] Herm [Schneider] think it's better off for him to have an outing somewhere else? We haven't gotten there yet."
