The only tweak I'd make to Jones' role is not to use him as a mid-inning RP but as say a 7th or 8th inning guy. For whatever reason, he shuts down teams when he enters with the bases empty, but he's a seive with inherited runners. Obviously, as a rookie, there's probably some room to grow, but for the time being, may as well use him in situations he's most likely to succeed.

I agree, I meant leave him in the pen. I think he could grow into a really nice setup guy for Reed in the future.

By keeping Peavy and Floyd, the White Sox have leeway with Danks' recovery.

"We'll have to monitor [Danks] like we monitored Peavy, like we monitored Sale," said White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper. "He'll be throwing all winter, so two thoughts come to mind. We'll need innings to back him up with in games, as we are not going to say, 'Here's 120 pitches,' and at some point, we'll be skipping his turn. To have depth is really important. The more, the better."
