Sox reinstate Jesse Crain from 15-day DL

After suffering from a strained left oblique, right-hander Jesse Crain has been reinstated from the 15-day disabled list and has returned to the White Sox from his injury rehabilitation assignment at Class AAA Charlotte.

As expected upon Crain's return, left-handed pitcher Eric Stults has been designated for assignment.

While in Charlotte, Crain made two appearances with the Knights, allowing no hits and delivering three strikeouts in 2 scoreless innings pitched. He's 0-0 with the White Sox this season, earning a 2.57 ERA, recording 10 strikeouts in 10 games.

Stults' contract was purchased from Class AAA Charlotte on May 7. He played two games with the South Siders, posting a 0-0 record with a 2.70 ERA.

The Cubs headed to Cincinnati in style Thursday night for their final regular-season series of the season.

In what may or may not be the last themed trip of the year implemented by Joe Maddon, Cubs players sported NFL jerseys while they hit the road and some of them are unique.
