• RP Jesse Crain, Chicago White Sox: After ten seasons of trying to become an All-Star, Crain hit the DL Wednesday, July 3 with a shoulder strain that prevented him from participating in the Midsummer Classic. He threw for the fourth consecutive day Friday, stretching his distance to 100 feet, but he still feels pain, he told the Chicago Tribune. Crain still considers himself day-to-day. However, more importantly than the All-Star Game, Crain's injury will likely lower his trade value and hurt his chances of being traded to a postseason contender before the July 31 deadline.
