Jones (elbow) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, CSN Chicago's Dan Hayes reports.

Jones has been limited to long toss thus far, so Wednesday will mark a significant step in his progression. He's targeting a return around the All-Star break, but that may be a bit optimistic, given that he had Tommy John surgery in August.

Jones (elbow) continues to engage in long toss sessions and could throw a bullpen on flat ground soon, the White Sox's official site reports.

Jones said he feels some normal soreness after throwing, but he otherwise feels good as he attempts to return from Tommy John surgery he had in July. The team has not committed to a firm timeline for his rehab process, but the hope remains he can be back on the active roster sometime around the All-Star break.

Jones (elbow) is throwing from 120 feet, and will throw from 150 feet and in bullpen sessions next, Doug Padilla of ESPN reports.

Jones appears to be progressing well, participating in soft toss on days that he's not throwing off flat ground. He underwent Tommy John surgery last July, so he likely won't return until midseason at the earliest. Even still, Jones believes he is able to throw at about 70 percent and believes his rehab has gone smoothly thus far.

Jones has been throwing from 105 feet, most recently Tuesday morning. While he seems to be making good progress, Jones is still just seven months removed from undergoing Tommy John surgery. He's unlikely to pitch before August, if at all during the 2015 season.

Jones (elbow) has been throwing on flat ground from 105 feet without issue, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.While rehabbing from a May back procedure, Jones suffered a torn UCL and was forced to undergo Tommy John surgery in late July. He said Friday that he is feeling good and it appears as though he's inching closer to returning to elevated ground, but there is no set timetable for him to throw a bullpen session. An August return seems like a best-case scenario.

Jones agreed to a one-year, $660,000 contract with the White Sox on Thursday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Jones entered 2014 as one of the top candidates to close out games for the White Sox, but various issues including hip, back and elbow sent him to the disabled list, and he wound up undergoing Tommy John surgery in late July. He will miss a good portion if not all of 2015.

Jones has been out since the first week of the season with a lower back injury. "There's been enough setbacks that I wouldn't expect him to be back this year," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Saturday. The 28-year-old right-hander might have run away with Chicago's ninth-inning job if his health cooperated.

Making his way back from a microdiscectomy, Jones thinks he might return in "late July or August" but admits that it's "a complete guess" on his part. "I feel like we're getting closer, that's for sure,'' Jones said. "But no date has been set. It's all on how my body reacts."
