Gammons @ MLB tweets:

White Sox have three year deal with Jesse Crain.

First mentioned in a tweet by Cowley:

Market on Q is not to KW’s liking …. but what’s that I smell in the kitchen? Smells like Crain cooking.

Crain is a Type-B free agent. He was offered arbitration.

UPDATE: A mini scouting report from Brett Ballantini:

Crain fits well in a Chicago bullpen filled with power arms, and features a wicked slider that has made a fool of many a White Sox hitter in the past. However, Crain has a tendency to give up flyballs, which could have a much more dangerous effect in homer-happy U.S. Cellular Field than at the Metrodome or Target Field in Minnesota.

UPDATE #2: Levine @ ESPN:

The deal is expected to be worth $13 million over three years, another major league source said.
