Are Sox Looking To Add Another Arm In Crain?

(John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports)
Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe hinted that free-agent reliever Jesse Crain might be an interesting option for the Red Sox. Last year, Crain pitched just 38 innings for The Pale Hose, but posted a 0.74 ERA—making the All-Star team in the process. Over his 10-year MLB career, the Toronto native is 45-30 with a 3.05 ERA. He has given up just 449 hits in 532 innings pitched. He also has experience with current Red Sox pitching coach Juan Nieves, and could slot in nicely to an already solid bullpen line-up.
