The old adage in Major League Baseball is that you can't have enough pitching. In most circumstances when a team with postseason aspirations makes a deal for an All-Star reliever the team expects for that player to help them at some point. For the Tampa Bay Rays and Jesse Crain things have not worked out as planned.

Crain an All-Star relief pitcher has yet to pitch for the Rays this season.

Last month the Chicago White Sox traded Crain along with cash considerations to the Rays for a player to be named later. The Rays knew that Crain was injured when they dealt for him. He hasn't played since June 29 after suffering a shoulder injury. At this point the White Sox probably won't get anything in return for a player who was in the midst of a breakout season.
