Default Crain to be traded after all?

I don't post a lot here, so I'm not sure about the rules on posting trade rumors, but Bruce Levine at ESPN Chicago is saying that a Crain trade is close to being done despite his current injury status.

Levine said the deal involves the Rays and another undisclosed team.

I wonder what return they will get considering the injury questions. I don't think they were going to get the big return a lot of Sox fans seemed to be expecting, but it will be interesting to see if it's any better than what they received in the Thornton deal.

EDIT:

Jeff Passan says it's not close to done, but talks are happening. Good news that the injury isn't hindering teams' interest:

Sources: Deal for Jesse Crain to Rays not close to done. Talks for now. Good news for White Sox is teams aren't scared off by his shoulder.
