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.
