Chicago White Sox RP Nate Jones (heel) is dealing with a sore left heel but is available out of the bullpen Wednesday, May 18.
Fantasy Tip: Jones has put up solid numbers as the primary setup man to closer David Robertson, posting a 2.20 ERA, 0.67 WHIP and 8.3 strikeouts per nine innings. He's worthy of being owned in much deeper leagues for his peripherals and as a handcuff to Robertson.

Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson is expected to return to the team Sunday, May 1. RP Nate Jones will be the primary closer with Robertson unavailable, but RPs Matt Albers and Zach Duke are possibilities, too, according to manager Robin Ventura.
Fantasy Tip: Jones is worth a flier if you're desperate for saves, but otherwise, Jones, Albers and Duke are fantasy afterthoughts in the majority of leagues. It is nice to know that Jones is next in line, though, so saves vultures could potentially hang onto him. Robertson's job is one of the most secure in the majors, though.
