Due to right-hander Jesse Crain’s injury, rival executives expect the Chicago White Sox to "look hard" at acquiring a reliever this summer, reports Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.

Morosi adds that this would make sense due to the young age of most of Chicago’s current crop of relievers.

Right-hander Brian Omogrosso (28), left-hander Leyson Septimo (26) and right-hander Nate Jones (26) all made their major league debuts this season. Fellow White Sox relievers Addison Reed and Hector Santiago are 23 and 24 years old, and have combined to log less than 70 major league innings.

Besides Crain, right-hander reliever Brian Bruney is also currently on the White Sox DL.

On the season, White Sox relievers have maintained an ERA of 3.75, ranking 20th in the majors. Their SO/9 of 8.16 leaves them in the middle of the pack among major league clubs, while their 1.24 WHIP places them 14th in the league.
