in the Big Ten East race until the Antworten

BOSTON -- The Tampa Bay Rays acquired injured Canadian reliever Jesse Crain from the Chicago White Sox on Monday in an attempt to bolster their bullpen for the stretch run in the tough AL East. The White Sox will receive players to be named or cash for the Toronto-born right hander, who is 2-3 with a 1.15 ERA in 38 appearances. He was placed on the disabled list on July 3 with a right shoulder strain. "Jesse has been one of the top relievers in the American League, not only this season but also throughout his entire tenure with the White Sox," Chicago general manager Rick Hahn said. "We cannot say enough about what Jesse has meant to our bullpen, and the positive impact hes had on our young relievers. We certainly think he has the ability to influence this years pennant race very positively for the Rays." The deal was announced before the Rays faced the division-leading Red Sox in Boston on Monday night. Tampa Bay began the day just one-half game behind Boston in the AL East. Crain was expected to fly straight to Tampa Bay, where the Rays open a two-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. Hahn said Crains injury affected the market for him. The team considered waiting until he is healthy, which could be in a few weeks, and trying to get him through waivers. "The very, very high likelihood would be that he would be claimed off waivers," Hahn said. "So that obviously was not a very appealing alternative when compared with negotiating a deal now prior to the deadline, even with the complexities involved in trying to figure out whats fair compensation for a guy currently on the DL. If he had been healthy for the month of July and healthy right now, it probably would have been a very different dynamic." Chicago, which was in last place in the AL Central, had lost nine of 12 heading into Monday nights game against the Indians. "Obviously, we havent played up to expectations here," Crain told reporters in Cleveland. "So to get a chance to get healthy and pitch for a team thats (fighting for first place), theres nothing more I could ask for." Crain, 32, made the All-Star team for the first time this year but did not pitch because he was injured. He said Monday he wasnt surprised he was traded, but he is focused on trying to get healthy and help his new club. "I had an idea but you dont want to go all-in until you know for sure," he said. "Now that it is, Im excited." Crain is 45-30 with a 3.05 ERA in a 10-year career, the first seven with the Minnesota Twins. He signed with the White Sox as a free agent after the 2010 season. "Great teammates, great city, the organization has been amazing to me," Crain said. "Its a time Ill never forget. Im going to miss these guys." To make room for him on the 40-man roster, the Rays transferred pitcher Brandon Gomes (shoulder) to the 60-day disabled list. Lorenzo Alexander Jersey .

No. 5 LSU | No. 7 Stanford | Top 25No. 6: Ohio StateLast Season: 12-1 (7-1 Big Ten East)The Buckeyes are the least experienced team in the country, but theyve had the best recruiting class in the Big Ten each of the past five years, so talent isnt an issue. OSU ranks very well in all eight position units: In particular, the LBs (10th best), QBs (11th), D-line (15th), O-line (10th), defensive backs (18th) and the special teams (11th) all crack the top 20 in my rankings. And senior QB J.T. Barrett will again provide a dangerous dual threat (22 TDs in 262 total plays last year). But theyll be dogs at OU (+7), draw Wisconsin (-3) and Penn State (-6) on the road in back-to-back weeks and face MSU and Michigan in the seasons final two weeks.IN IF... It can stay unbeatable on the road. OSU is 18-0 in road games under Urban Meyer, but the Buckeyes travel to Norman, Madison, State College and East Lansing this year.OUT IF... Barrett isnt his 2014 self: His QBR dropped from 87.1 in 2014 (No. 2 in the FBS) to 76.9 last year (No. 18).Ohio States chances to win each game 09.03 vs. Bowling Green: 94.8% 09.10 vs. Tulsa: 93.4% 09.17 @ Oklahoma: 19.0% 10.01 vs. Rutgers: 91.4% 10.08 vs. Indiana: 88.9% 10.15 @ Wisconsin: 55.1% 10.22 @ Penn State:?57.0% 10.29 vs. Northwestern: 84.9% 11.05 vs. Nebraska: 71.8% 11.12 @ Maryland: 83.9% 11.19 @ Michigan State: 60.2% 11.26 vs Michigan: 51.6%Urban Meyers young Buckeyes will flirt with greatness at times, but their youthfulness will lead too a Week 3 loss at Oklahoma and one conference setback, landing them at 10-2 and robbing J.ddddddddddddT. Barrett & Co. of a playoff berth.?-- Brian BennettGet ready to learn some new household names this season. The Buckeyes return an FBS-worst six starters, but theres still no denying the talent on this team. Young players like RB Mike Weber and WR Noah Brown should help lift OSU to a 10-2 record.?-- Josh MoyerWeve this seen pattern before. An Meyer-coached team returns a bevy of NFL talent from a national championship season and disappoints. Meyers Florida team followed up a disappointing 2007 with another title in 08. An early trip to Oklahoma gives the 16 Buckeyes a chance to make the playoffs even if they finish with a 10-2 record.?-- Dan MurphyExpectations never change at Ohio State under Meyer, but returning only six starters could make life more difficult than usual. A loss at Oklahoma is likely, and a stumble in conference play seems probable, as the Buckeyes finish 10-2 while remaining in the Big Ten East race until the end. -- Jesse Temple?The Buckeyes are obviously young, but nobody in the Big Ten has a higher ceiling than Meyers team. There could be growing pains, but just like the 2014 team, once Ohio State gets rolling, an 11-1 record and a conference crown are in reach.?-- Austin WardNo. 5 LSU | No. 7 Stanford | Top 25 Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2020 China Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Jerseys NFL China ' ' '
