DETROIT -- The White Sox bullpen received a significant boost on Saturday with the addition of right-hander Jesse Crain, who was activated from the disabled list.
The 31-year-old Crain has been on the DL since July 4 (retroactive to June 24) with a right posterior shoulder strain.
Manager Robin Ventura said that right-hander Gavin Floyd (elbow tendinits) will likely be actived in time to start against the Minnesota Twins on Monday at U.S. Cellular Field.
Right-hander pitcher Brian Omogrosso was optioned to AAA Charlotte to make room for Crain, who is 2-1 with a 2.38 ERA over 22 2/3 innings. Crain also was on the disabled list from April 27-May 14 with a strained right oblique.
Omogrosso, 27, was 0-0 with a 4.26 in five appearances.
