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.


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.
