Nate Jones


DETROIT -- Matt Albers and Dan Jennings are closer to the big leagues but Nate Jones and Jesse Crain continue to make progress.


MINNEAPOLIS — Dan Jennings is set to start a rehab assignment, and Matt Albers could join him soon.


Nate Jones’ simulated game went off without a hitch, Matt Albers has started to play catch and Jake Petricka, Daniel Webb and Zach Putnam are throwing well.


Nate Jones is in town for the rest of the homestand so the White Sox can assess what progress the tall right-hander has made.


DETROIT -- The White Sox won’t hold Jake Petricka back when he’s ready to rejoin the club, which could happen as soon as Monday.
