"Everything's good, so he made the team," Ventura said before the White Sox closed Spring Training with a game against the Brewers at Miller Park. "That's a big hurdle for us as far as making the decision on him. He's available for Monday."
Crain missed much of Spring Training with a strained right abductor and had pitched tentatively in three outings in Arizona. He looked much better against Milwaukee on Friday.
"He looked like you would think as far as his effort and velocity and all that," Ventura said. "It was a comforting inning to watch him pitch."
Crain was 2-3 with a 2.44 ERA in 51 relief appearances last season.
