White Sox | Nate Jones gathering confidence

Chicago White Sox RP Nate Jones (glute) has thrown two recent bullpen sessions, testing his moderately strained left glute. He said Monday, Feb. 24, that he feels on track to soon pitch in an actual game. "I'm getting good. I'm feeling better every day," Jones said. "The first one was probably 50, 60 percent, just getting over my front leg. Then the next one we bumped it up a little bit, probably I would guess 75, 80 percent. All went well."

Fantasy Tip: Jones is in the mix for the closer's job in Chicago, and his fantasy appeal will vary greatly depending upon if he wins the job or works in a setup role. This is a situation to monitor closely, as there are plenty of saves to be had on the south side of Chicago.
