The Chicago White Sox traded All-Star reliever Jesse Crain to the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday for future considerations, the team announced.

Crain is 2-3 this season, with a 0.74 ERA, a 1.15 WHIP and 19 holds, but is dealing with a sore shoulder and has not pitched since June 29. He was selected to his first All-Star game but was unable to pitch because of the injury.

JAFFE: Trade deadline spotlight: pitcher roundup

He had a setback last week in trying to get back healthy enough to pitch, and it's uncertain when he will return to the mound.

“We cannot say enough about what Jesse has meant to our bullpen, and the positive impact he’s had on our young relievers, " White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said. "We certainly think (Jesse) has the ability to influence this year’s pennant race very positively for the Rays.”
The White Sox appear to be sellers as the trade deadline approaches on Tuesday. They enter tonight's action 40-62, 18 games back of the Detroit Tigers in the American League Central, while the Rays are a 1/2 game back of the American League East-leading Boston Red Sox.
