NEW YORK -- White Sox reliever Jesse Crain remained unavailable for Saturday's game against the Yankees due to soreness in the back of his right shoulder. If Crain moves to the disabled list on Sunday or Monday, then Matt Thornton -- or "the grandpa," as manager Robin Ventura referred to him on Saturday -- figures to be the only veteran among a seven-reliever crew.
"It's a pretty young group, but there's energy that comes with that," Ventura said. "There's excitement and a lot of good things that come with it. Some people view it as a negative. I'm looking more at the positives."
