Crain reinstated from disabled list; Stults DFA'd

CHICAGO -- Prior to Tuesday afternoon's contest with Detroit, White Sox reliever Jesse Crain was returned from his injury rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Charlotte for a strained left oblique and activated from the 15-day disabled list. Left-handed hurler Eric Stults was designated for assignment in the corresponding move.

Crain was placed on the disabled list April 27, retroactive to April 21, and made two successful rehab appearances before his return.

"I didn't want to go into a game and it's still bothering me or I'm thinking about it where it affects the way I pitch," said Crain of making the rehab trip to Charlotte. "So being able to go down there and throw in some non-stressful games to make sure I'm there was good for both parties."
