The White Sox have placed 30-year old righty reliever Jesse Crain on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 21st, due to a right oblique strain. Crain has pitched in 6 games (0 starts) for the White Sox so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 2.57 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP. The White Sox have called up 26-year old righty starter/reliever Dylan Axelrod to replace Crain in the bullpen. Axelrod pitched in 4 games (all starts) in AAA-ball so far this year and he is 2-1 with a 1.08 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP. He pitched in 4 games (3 starts) in his first taste of the majors with the White Sox last year and and he was 1-0 with a 2.89 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP. I think Axelrod is going to do a solid job for the White Sox, but they are still going to miss Crain as he has been really sharp so far this year.
