Rays finally activate July acquisition Jesse Crain
Jesse Crain was acquired by the Rays two days before the trade deadline. Monday, he's finally been activated from the DL for the first time as a Rays player.
On Sept. 23, Jesse Crain was finally activated and joined the Rays active roster, the club announced.
In between, Crain was dealing with a right shoulder strain. In fact, he hasn't pitched since June 29 due to the shoulder issue. The 32-year-old could actually end up being a huge weapon for the Rays in their last week of play and possibly the postseason, too.
Crain, an All-Star for the first time this season, has a 0.74 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 46 strikeouts in 36 2/3 innings. He has 19 holds with just one blown save. He joins the likes of Jake McGee and Joel Peralta as part of the bridge to closer Fernando Rodney.
