Nate Jones is day-to-day with a bruised foot.
Jones suffered the bruise Tuesday when Carlos Correa hit a screaming liner at the mound. X-rays turned up negative, so the righty reliever shouldn't be out long. Jones, 30, owns an impressive 2.20 ERA, 0.67 WHIP, and 15/4 K/BB ratio in 16 1/3 innings this season out of the White Sox bullpen. May 17 - 10:30 PM

Date:

Nate Jones was pulled from an appearance Tuesday after taking a line drive off his foot.

It was a screaming line drive from Carlos Correa. Jones limped off, with Zach Duke taking over to face Evan Gattis. Jones is probably going for X-rays, and the White Sox should have a status update after the game.
May 17 - 10:14 PM

Nate Jones struck out both batters he faced Tuesday in a relief appearance versus the Rangers.

Jones has a 0.00 ERA and 12 strikeouts through 7 2/3 innings this spring, and he's allowed just two hits. The right-hander should be an excellent setup man this season for White Sox closer David Robertson.
Mar 29 - 6:46 PM

White Sox signed RHP Nate Jones to a three-year, $6.75 million contract extension with club options for 2019 and 2020 and a mutual option for 2021.

The buyout for both options is $1.25 million, so Jones is guaranteed at least $8 million. The new deal buys out Jones' final two years of arbitration eligibility and at least one free agent year. Jones looked great in the second half last season after making his way back from Tommy John surgery, posting a 3.32 ERA and 27/6 K/BB ratio over 19 innings while showing his velocity was back in the upper-90s.

White Sox activated RHP Nate Jones from the 60-day disabled list.

Jones has successfully completed his comeback from Tommy John surgery. The reliever allowed just two runs over 9 1/3 innings while on his rehab assignment and is reportedly already throwing in the upper-90s again. The former closer candidate should help the Pale Hose's bullpen down the stretch.

Nate Jones (elbow) will move his rehab assignment to Triple-A Charlotte on Monday night.

He's just one step away from joining the White Sox bullpen after three mostly-successful rehab outings with High-A Winston-Salem. Jones has been out for all of 2015 and he made just one appearance in 2014. The 29-year-old reliever is now 12 months removed from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.

Nate Jones (elbow) is close to beginning a rehab assignment.

Jones is reportedly already throwing in the upper-90s again as he makes his way back from Tommy John surgery. It will probably be August before he's ready to rejoin the White Sox' bullpen, but he could be an integral relief option for them down the stretch.

Nate Jones (elbow) pitched a simulated game Friday in Arizona.

His fastball topped out at 98 mph. Jones is 10 months removed from Tommy John surgery and could make his return before the All-Star break. The 29-year-old will serve in a setup role when he is activated. The ninth inning still belongs to David Robertson.

Nate Jones (elbow) is continuing to progress in his return from last year's Tommy John surgery.

"Knock on wood, I’m coming along pretty strongly and hopefully the rest of the rehab goes just as well," Jones said on Wednesday. "I don’t know what the schedule is mapped out, but I know throw a side here Friday and that’s as far as I know. I know it’s going to change a little bit once I go home to start throwing more breaking balls and stuff like that, which I just started Monday off the mound." Jones is eligible to come off the disabled list on June 4, but the White Sox have been eyeing the All-Star break as a more realistic date. He's still got plenty of hurdles to clear before being activated.

White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said Monday that Nate Jones (elbow) could begin a rehab assignment sometime in May.

That would put him on pace to return likely sometime in June, which is a pretty quick recovery considering he had Tommy John surgery last July. Jones obviously is no longer in the mix for saves as he was last season, but he could be a nice mid-season addition to the White Sox' bullpen if he regains his pre-surgery form.
Mon, Apr 20, 2015 06:27:00 PM

White Sox placed RHP Nate Jones on the 60-day disabled list with a right elbow injury.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Kyle Drabek. Jones will miss most, if not all, of the 2015 season while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery.

Nate Jones (elbow) will throw a bullpen session on Wednesday.

Fri, Mar 27, 2015 12:08:00 PM

Nate Jones (elbow) will finish out his long-toss progression on Monday in White Sox camp.

The next big step will be mound work. Jones underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last July and probably won't be an option for the White Sox bullpen until sometime in August. The righty is making $600,000 this season in his first year of arbitration.
Mon, Mar 16, 2015 09:19:00 AM

Nate Jones (elbow) is scheduled to make 25 throws from 75, 90 and 105 feet on Tuesday.

Jones, who is currently working his way back from Tommy John surgery, will progress to throwing from 90, 105 and 120 feet next time out. The 28-year-old right-hander will spent most of the year in rehab mode.
Tue, Feb 24, 2015 11:40:00 AM

Nate Jones (elbow) is currently long-tossing from 105 feet.

Making his way back from Tommy John surgery, Jones isn't far off from throwing off a mound. The reliever will miss most, if not all, of the 2015 season while rehabbing.
