Crain working on regaining strength
ARLINGTON -- White Sox reliever Jesse Crain was sidelined from June 24 to July 20 with a right posterior shoulder strain, so it's only logical that his first few appearances off the disabled list weren't as sharp as the veteran would have liked. Crain bounced back Saturday night to throw a scoreless seventh inning, striking out two and stranding runners at first and third.

"It's still kind of a work in progress," Crain said. "It was something that happened in my shoulder, so now it's trying to get that strength all the way back. I'm still kind of working on getting that strength.

"Even last night, I felt a little erratic but I was able to throw the pitches when I needed. It's still a work in progress. I'm getting better each time out and my shoulder is getting stronger. I'm pretty close."
