RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Jones returned to action in early August after missing a season and a half with elbow issues. Despite the layoff, he was still able to touch 100 mph with his fastball and he continued to flash an unhittable slider. That slider was his knockout punch, and he should take on a more prominent role in the bullpen as he gets further away from his August 2014 injury. Jones could be in the mix for saves if something happens to closer David Robertson, but his value will likely be limited to leagues that reward holds if Robertson remains healthy in 2016.

2015

Jones appeared to be the heir apparent to the White Sox's closer role after the club traded Addison Reed to the Diamondbacks in the offseason. However, he was placed on the disabled list on April 4 and did not pitch again before undergoing Tommy John surgery in August. The surgery likely puts him out for most, if not all, of the 2015 campaign.

2014

Jones struggled at the start of the 2013 season, but he became one of the bullpen's key late-inning men after Jesse Crain and Matt Thornton departed via trade. Opposing batters were hitting .280 off him by the end of May, and his ERA sat on the wrong side of 6.00. He then went on a three-month run where he struck out 60 in 43.1 innings and posted a 2.03 ERA over 38 appearances. He wound up leading the bullpen with 78 innings pitched, and he pitched almost exclusively in the eighth and ninth innings starting in July. Jones maintained his high-90s (occasional 100 mph) velocity into September, but control issues returned in the season's final month as the gas tank neared empty. With Addison Reed out of the picture following an offseason trade to Arizona, Jones could enter spring training as the favorite to replace him as the team's closer.

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.
