Chicago White Sox Place Jesse Crain On 15-Day Disabled List

The Chicago White Sox have placed relief pitcher Jesse Crain on the 15-day disabled list with a right posterior shoulder strain, according to Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago. In response to the move, which has been made retroactive to June 24, the White Sox have recalled Deunte Heath from Triple-A Charlotte.

Powers notes that White Sox manager Robin Ventura doesn't think Crain will be gone for particularly long. That's good news for the White Sox, considering that Crain has a 2.38 ERA with 28 strikeouts and nine walks over 22.2 innings before going down.

Heath, 26, has posted a 1.62 ERA with 50 strikeouts and 11 walks over 44.1 innings this season with Charlotte. Including Heath, the White Sox now have ten different rookie players on their active roster, including eight rookie pitchers.
