• White Sox reliever Jesse Crain took another step in his recovery from a strained left oblique injury that's sidelined him since April 21.

Crain made his first rehab appearance on Friday, throwing a scoreless inning as a starter for Triple-A Charlotte. Crain struck out one batter and hit one, and threw 14 of his 21 pitches for strikes.

• Third baseman Brent Morel missed his second straight game on Friday because of back soreness. Morel also missed Wednesday's game at Cleveland. Manager Robin Ventura said he was just being cautious with Morel.

"He's had some issues [over the] last week," Ventura said. "Just kind of monitoring. [It's] not enough to DL him. [We're] just giving him one more day. He'll start [on Saturday]."

• Dunn's first-inning homer on Friday was the 376th of his career, moving him into a tie with former White Sox catcher Carlton Fisk for 68th place on the all-time list.
