Rays send De Los Santos to White Sox

MLB.com

ST. PETERSBURG -- The Rays on Saturday traded left-hander Frank De Los Santos to the White Sox for a player to be named or cash considerations.

The move clears De Los Santos from the 40-man roster, presumably to clear space for the activation of right-handed reliever Jesse Crain (strained right shoulder) or the promotion of a fill-in starter for Sunday.

Full Game Coverage

Following Saturday's 5-1 win over the Orioles, the team had not announced a starter. Jeremy Hellickson had been scheduled to make his 31st start of the season but threw 41 pitches in relief during Friday's 18-inning contest, the longest game in franchise history.

De Los Santos, who has never appeared in a Major League game, compiled a 5.34 ERA over 26 appearances for Triple-A Durham this season.
