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 Triple-A 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 eight of the 12 pitchers.

In his past six at-bats, Dayan Viciedo is 0-6 with six strikeouts.

One may see the back-and-forth production from the young right-handed hitter and question his reliability. But given all of the circumstances, Viciedo is giving the White Sox exactly what they expected of him.

It was Kevin Youkilis’ first home game in Chicago and he did not disappoint. Youkilis launched a two-run bomb in his first at-bat and that started a Chicago White Sox slugfest against the Texas Rangers.
Youkilis would end up 3-6 with four RBIs. Adam Dunn followed Youkilis’ home run with one of his own, giving the All-Star 25 on the season. The powerful Sox offense got nine earned...
Tuesday's start against the Texas Rangers was the last start for Chicago White Sox left-hander Chris Sale before the All-Star break, and the lefty made sure it was memorable. Sale went 7 1/3 innings, allowing just one run on five hits while fanning four in the White Sox's 19-2 win. He lowered his season ERA to 2.19, making the case for Texas manager Ron Washington, who...
The career of Bobby Jenks got off on the wrong foot when the right-hander was not allowed to play a lot of high school baseball due to his poor academic performance.
Book ending that and his release today from the Boston Red Sox has been good times, bad times and more than a couple of rowdy moments.

It seems like every single season there’s at least one player that was overlooked for the All-Star Game. This year’s All-Star snub is White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski. He’s 35 years old and is having the best first half of his career. Just look at the numbers – he’s hitting .291 with 15 home runs and 48 RBIs. Pierzynski’s career high for home runs in an entire season...
