Jones (foot) will be available out of the bullpen for Wednesday's game against Houston, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jones left Tuesday's outing after taking a liner off his left foot and Van Schouwen reports that he's still feeling sore, but he will be able to pitch if called upon Wednesday. He has served as Chicago's primary setup man this season, notching a 2.20 ERA with a dominant .67 WHIP across 16.1 innings of work.

Jones left Tuesday's game with a bruised left foot and he is day-to-day.

Competitive Edge Analysis

X-rays were negative, but it sounds like Jones could be dealing with discomfort for a few days. He is Chicago's top setup man when healthy, but he could cede those duties to Zach Duke, who replaced him Tuesday, and Matt Albers in the short term.

Jones left Tuesday's game after taking a liner off the foot, CSN Chicago's Dan Hayes reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Carlos Correa smoked a ball up the middle, and it hit Jones' foot, likely preventing a single. He made the out at first base, but was then replaced by Zach Duke. Look for his status to be updated when the team comments as to the severity of the injury.

Jones allowed two runs on two hits in two-thirds of an inning against the Rangers on Monday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Sometimes you just don't have it. Jones, who has been one of the team's best relievers this season, struck out Nomar Mazara in the appearance, but he also allowed a leadoff triple to Rougned Odor and an RBI blooper to Adrian Beltre. The clunker should do nothing to alter the current pecking order in the White Sox's bullpen.

Jones should serve as the White Sox's closer for the next two days with David Robertson on the bereavement list.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Robertson left the team before Thursday's contest, but there was not a save chance in a blowout loss. Jones could get a look Friday or Saturday, should an opportunity present itself, but Robertson should return by Sunday.

Jones recorded his first save with two shutout innings Tuesday against the Angels.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jones was handed the ball with a five-run lead in the eighth inning and brought it home with ease. Jones isn't in position to usurp the closer's role from David Robertson, but he has been excellent in the early going, with a 1.29 ERA and six strikeouts against just one walk in seven innings.

Jones has yet to allow a run in seven Cactus League appearances.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Meanwhile, he has 10 strikeouts (to just one walk) in his seven frames. Jones looks ready to go as the team's top setup guy, and he could be in line for some saves should anything happen to David Robertson.

Jones, who missed much of 2015 while recovering from Tommy John surgery, has been throwing at full speed at the start of White Sox's spring training, the Daily Herald reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jones was once on a path to the White Sox's closer role, but his Tommy John surgery and David Robertson's arrival waylayed those plans. However, his triple-digit fastball is back and he should be back in the mix for late-inning work at the open of the 2016 season.

Jones agreed to a three-year, $8 million contract with the White Sox on Friday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jones only made 19 appearances in 2015 after recovering from Tommy John surgery, but he was effective when he was on the mound. He worked a 3.32 ERA with 27 strikeouts and just six walks last season and should be a mid-to-late innings option out of Chicago's bullpen in 2016.

Jones (2-2) earned a win Saturday, striking out the only hitter he faced in a 4-3 win over the Tigers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jones required just four pitches to strike out Ian Kinsler, becoming the team's pitcher of record when Leury Garcia hit a walk-off single in the bottom half of the frame. The 29-year-old has posted a tidy 0.95 WHIP in 19 innings since returning from Tommy John surgery. Assuming he stays healthy, Jones will be in the mix for high-leverage situations next season.
