Jesse Crain to face hitters Monday before potential return

Rays pitcher Jesse Crain felt fine Saturday after Friday’s bullpen session and is scheduled to face live hitters Monday, the Tampa Tribune reports. If Crain doesn’t suffer any setbacks after Monday’s throwing session, he could rejoin the bullpen.

“When he gets a hitter out there and then he’ll crank it up a little more, and then the next day after that is really going to tell us what we got,” manager Joe Maddon said.

Crain is on the 60-day disabled list with a shoulder injury.
