Jones (elbow) was instructed to rest for 3-to-5 days by a doctor Monday, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

It seems like Jones has avoided a major setback in his rehab process. He'll likely need to be re-evaluated following the resting period with the hope of returning to his throwing program in a week or so.

Jones (elbow) had a recurrence of neuritis symptoms, but MRI results came back clean, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

This appears to be the cause of his shutdown earlier in the month, although there doesn't appear to be any structural issue with Jones' elbow at this time. He's expected to visit a doctor Monday night with the hope of being cleared to throw once again, so he very well could resume his rehab program in the next few days.

Jones (elbow) received a round of treatment last week and has not thrown in about a week, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

The White Sox claim there has not been a setback, and that they are just being patient with Jones, but considering he was throwing bullpen sessions every couple days at the end of May, it is safe to say that there was at least a minor setback. He is without a timetable to resume throwing.

Jones (elbow) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Monday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Jones tossed his second bullpen session in the span of four days, this time mixing in sliders. With another 25 pitches under his belt, the reliever could be on his way to a rehab assignment in the near future.

Jones (elbow) is scheduled to throw another bullpen session Friday, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones ramped up his throwing activities last weekend, but it seems like he still has a couple more days before he returns from the disabled list. Given how much he's already thrown, it's not out of the question for the reliever to return to the fold within the next week.

Jones (elbow) took part in a simulated game Monday, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

The fact that Jones was able to bounce back from throwing 24 pitches in a bullpen session Friday and throw in a simulated game on just two days of rest is an encouraging sign that he's almost ready to return. We'll have to wait and see if the White Sox decide to send him on a rehab assignment before we know the next step, but Jones could potentially return within the week.

Jones (elbow) threw a second bullpen session this week on Friday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was encouraged after throwing 24 pitches, all fastballs and changeups. The next milestone is to work in his slider, a pitch that puts more stress on the elbow. He estimates another couple of bullpen sessions and a simulated game or a rehabilitation game before returning to the White Sox bullpen.

Jones (elbow) threw a bullpen session Wednesday and may work another one Friday, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander was struggling with control (4.6 BB/9) but otherwise struck out 11.6 per nine innings and kept a 2.31 ERA before landing on the disabled list. Jones may return within the next week, depending on whether the club determines he needs a simulated game or rehab assignment in the minors. Upon his return, he'll probably resume eighth-inning setup duties, which would make him the logical speculation behind closer David Robertson, unless the surging Tommy Kahnle can seize that title.

Jones (elbow) threw out to 90 feet Monday and is gearing up for a bullpen session later this week, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones described the session as "pretty solid" and said the elbow "feels awesome." It's too soon to tell whether he'll need a minor-league assignment or whether Jones can get by with a simulated game before being activated.
