Card #94 - Jesse Crain
Born: July 5, 1981
Jesse had been a thorn in the side of the White Sox for many years with the Minnesota Twins. Crain had gotten the best of the Sox in many situations, so when he became a free agent, the Pale Hose snapped him up to bolster their bullpen.
While the fortunes of the White Sox in 2011 have been mixed, Jesse's fortunes are rising. Through June 8th, he has a 2-2 record, with nine holds and one blown save. Both losses have come when Crain went more than one inning during an outing.
Jesse has been mostly immune to the early falterings of the Sox pen. Now that the bullpen as a whole is back on track, Crain seems to be thriving even more. Jesse is signed through the 2013 season and hopefully he will be as consistent throughout the rest of his contract as he has been through the first two plus months.
