26-year old rookie righty reliever Nate Jones was a longshot to win a job in the White Sox’ pen this spring. He not only made the pitching staff, but he’s pitching really well so far this year. Jones has pitched in 16 games (0 starts) for the White Sox so far this year and he is 2-0 with a 1.23 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. He has given up 17 hits while whiffing 21 batters in his first 22 innings so far this year, which is impressive. He will need to tighten up his control a little bit as he has already walked 10 batters so far this year. Jones pitched in 152 games (49 starts) in his five years in the minors and he is 19-21 with 13 saves, a 4.28 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP. The White Sox hope that Jones can keep up the good work.
