He was drafted and signed in 2002, playing at the rookie level, and low-A minor league levels going 3-2 (wins/losses) with an 0.99 Earned Run Average combined. In 2003, he managed to pitch at all three levels in the minor leagues, going 6-3 with a 3.00 Earned Run Average. In 2004 he pitched with the AAA-ball Rochester Red Wings and went 3-2 with a 2.49 Earned Run Average before being called up by the Minnesota Twins.
Jesse was called up by the Minnesota Twins in early August of 2004, going 3-0 with a 2.00 ERA. In 2005 he made the big league roster. By starting the season 8-0, he set a record for most consecutive wins in relief to start a career. By the end of the 2004 season, the Twins had five relievers with closer-quality stuff-and that included Jesse Crain. He definitely helped the Twins win the division title and worked 10 straight games without allowing a run in early September, at a time when the Twins were hot.

Jesse is known to throw 100 MPH. Most recently, his fastball varied from 92-98 MPH because he shortened his stride to improve his command. Jesse throws a big curve and a good slider, pitches the Twins believe will improve as he learns to relax on the mound. While he has a tendency to overthrow, he is nearly un-hittable when his command is on. He is a decent fielder who needs to improve at holding baserunners.For the Twins, Jesse will pitch mostly in middle relief, and should be part of one of baseball's best bullpens.
