White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Friday tht Daniel Webb and Maikel Cleto will be used in more high-leverage situations following Nate Jones' (hip) injury.
Matt Lindstrom remains the team's closer, but Webb and Cleto could slide into setup roles, potentially putting them in line for some saves if Lindstrom is demoted or injured. "The way (Webb and Cleto are) throwing, you just move them up," Ventura said. "With bullpens you’re always going to have guys that are tired and something happens, a little twinge and you’re going to have to have a lot of guys come in and be able to fill that in."

Daniel Webb will miss the next few days of White Sox camp due to a death in his family.

Our condolences to Daniel and the Webb family. The 24-year-old hurler is in competition with Matt Lindstrom, Nate Jones and Mitchell Boggs for the team's closer job this spring.

Scott Merkin of reports that Daniel Webb is excited to have his name mentioned in the mix for the White Sox closer's job, but that his focus is earning a spot on the 25-man roster.

The hard-throwing 24-year-old acclimated himself well during his brief audition in 2013, posting a 3.18 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 10/4 K/BB ratio over 11 1/3 innings. Nate Jones, Matt Lindstrom and Mitchell Boggs are also being mentioned as candidates to get the ball in the ninth inning.

White Sox purchased the contract of RHP Daniel Webb from Triple-A Charlotte.

Webb had a 1.87 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 78/27 K/BB ratio in 62 2/3 innings this summer in the minor leagues. The 24-year-old righty should do well in middle relief.

White Sox acquired RHP Daniel Webb and RHP Myles Jaye from the Blue Jays in exchange for RHP Jason Frasor.

Webb was an 18th-round pick of the Blue Jays in 2009 and was signed for $450,000, three times above the recommended slot amount. While he has touched the mid-90s with his fastball, the results haven't been there to this point, as he holds a 5.11 ERA and 6.2 K/9 rate over 135 2/3 innings in the lower minors. The 22-year-old is obviously a long ways away from the majors.
