>> White Sox Put Crain On DL
The Chicago White Sox placed right-hander reliever Jesse Crain on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a right shoulder strain, retroactive to June 24.
The White Sox recalled right-hander Deunte Heath from AAA Charlotte to replace Crain, who is 2-1 with a 2.38 ERA in 24 games this season. Crain was also on the disabled list April 27 to May 14 with a strained oblique.
Heath was 4-2 with a 1.70 ERA and one save in 22 relief appearances with Charlotte. Signed by the White Sox as a free agent on April 22, 2010, he also started two games and will be a possible option to start Sunday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays as the White Sox give Chris Sale an extended break.
With the roster move, the White Sox have 10 rookies on their 25-man roster, including 8 of the 12 pitchers.
