RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Jones came from almost nowhere to become one of the White Sox's most frequently used relievers in 2012. A high-90s fastball (often 100-plus mph) and good curveball helped Jones make the jump from Double-A to the Opening Day roster, but his control problems persisted into the majors. He walked 10.6 percent of the hitters he faced, but he missed enough bats to post an 8-0 record and sub-3.00 ERA. Expect his heavy usage to continue in 2013, but he will need to keep the strikeout rate up to keep the run rate down barring improvement in his walk rate.

2012

Jones returned to the bullpen in 2011 in his first season at Double-A Birmingham after spending 2010 in the rotation with High-A Winston-Salem, and the hard thrower upped his K/9IP from 6.4 to 9.5. His curveball has been rated as the best in the organization, but he will probably have to test it at Triple-A Charlotte before he receives a trial in the majors.
