MLB Injury News:
Chicago White Sox left-hander Jesse Crain threw from a mound for the first time since being placed on the disabled list with a shoulder injury. The southpaw is once again slated to throw off a mound tomorrow, and if all continues to go well pitching coach Don Cooper told reporters -- including Scott Merkin of MLB.com -- that Crain could rejoin Chicago's bullpen by Sunday.
"His health is still our foremost thing in our mind to
make sure he is well," said Cooper, adding they still have to work in
offspeed pitches before Crain's return. "We want to do it to the point
where he's maybe a tad fatigued, making sure you've got that good workout in and
feel good before, during and after. Now we're waiting on the after, which is
Crain has been on the DL since June 30 while recovering from a strained shoulder. He threw 33 pitches yesterday, but only mixed in fastballs and changeups. He will still have to show that he can throw his off-speed pitches without issue before he's cleared to return for the White Sox.
After the session, Crain said that he felt good. He told reporters that he continues to take his recovery day to day, but he does admit that he hopes to return as soon as possible to get ready for the remainder of the season.
The duration of Crain's season could be spent with the White Sox, but there's also a chance he'll be dealt prior to the July 31 trade deadline. He was basically a lock to be moved before his injury, but he'll still likely have a few outings to prove to those targeting him that he's healthy enough to warrant an acquisition. On the season, Crain has posted an ERA of 0.74 with 46 strikeouts in 36 2/3 innings.
