Rays send two to White Sox for Crain

ST. PETERSBURG — The Rays didn't get anything out of their trade for reliever Jesse Crain, and it cost them two low-level minor-leaguers and an unannounced amount of cash.

Left-hander Sean Bierman, a 2012 10th-round draft pick from the University of Tampa, and infielder Ben Kline, who both played at Class A this season, were sent to the White Sox on Wednesday to complete the trade.

Bierman was 6-5, 2.55 while splitting the season between Class A Bowling Green and Charlotte. Kline, a 32nd-round pick in 2012, hit .246 with 15 RBIs in 40 games over three lower levels.

Crain was acquired July 29 with a strained shoulder and did not recover in time to pitch for the Rays. He is expected to have a minor surgical procedure and will be a free agent.

    While Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov grab the headlines, don't sleep on their linemate, Vladislav Namestnikov. Namestnikov is far from a third wheel, with eight points in eight games. "He might not have the names the other two have, but he's as pivotal and vital to that line as the others," coach Jon Cooper said.
