Chicago White Sox RP Jake Petricka pitched two innings for the save Sunday, July 6. He has made eight consecutive scoreless appearances.
Fantasy Tip: Petricka should be picked up if you're in need of saves. He should continue to be in the mix, if not the front-runner for save chances.

Chicago White Sox RP Ronald Belisario will no longer be the team's closer, according to manager Robin Ventura. RP Jake Petricka received the save Friday, June 27, and is an option to close. Ventura has not decided who will fill the role at this point.
Fantasy Tip: Petricka likely will be in the mix since he got the chance Friday. Zach Putnam and Javy Guerra could also receive save chances in the upcoming weeks. Matt Lindstrom (ankle) could also be back in a few weeks and take over the role. Owners could consider adding one of them at this point but could also wait to see if Ventura names a closer.

Chicago White Sox RP Nate Jones (back) isn't ready for baseball activities, and there is still no timetable for his return. Manager Robin Ventura is comfortable using RPs Ryan Webb and Jacob Petricka in high-leverage situations late in games, but he will not change the current bullpen alignment.

The Chicago White Sox placed RP Nate Jones (gluteus) on the 15-day disabled list Friday, April 4, and recalled RP Jacob Petricka from Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move. Jones was charged with four runs without recording an out in his two appearances this year. Petricka was 1-1 with a 3.26 ERA in 19 1/3 innings with the White Sox in 2013.
Fantasy Tip: About the only reason to keep Jones on your roster now is if you're in an AL-only league or you want to use up one of your DL spots. Matt Lindstrom has a much longer leash now, it seems, after blowing his first save opp yesterday.
