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.

Which current Blackhawks would Jeremy Roenick like to play with?

Is there anyone who wouldn't want to play with Patrick Kane?

Jeremy Roenick joined In The Loop on Wednesday to discuss which current Blackhawks he would like to play with, and naturally, the reigning MVP topped his list.

"He would be my No. 1 choice," Roenick said. "There's no question about it."

But Roenick said there are two more Blackhawks he would like to lace them up with.

"I wouldn't mind playing with (Artemi) Panarin also," he said. "I would love to play with Jonathan Toews. I think I'd play well with all three of them."

Roenick also gave high praise to coach Joel Quenneville, saying he is one of the best coaches in all of sports. Roenick even compared Quenneville to "the Bill Belichick of hockey."
