Nate Jones is just a country kid, but he's making a big impact in his first few seasons in Chicago.

The Kentucky native was named the White Sox of the Year at Monday's Comcast SportsNet Sports Awards. Jones went 4-5 with a 4.15 ERA in 2013, striking out 89 batters in 78 innings. With Addison Reed in Arizona, Jones is likely to be in the mix for the closer job in Chicago next year.

And while he's been solid in the Windy City, he still can't get used to the traffic.

"Jeez o Pete," he said laughing. "It could be 2 miles away but it'll take you 30 minutes to get there."

On a more serious note, Jones said the March of Dimes foundation has been important to him and his wife, who had their first child this past spring training.

"And so the March of Dimes really hits home with us because of everything they do for the mothers and children, obviously," Jones said. "I'm very honored to be up here."
