Nate Jones walked both batters he faced Thursday and now the White Sox have placed him on the disabled list with a strained hip.
Jones suffered the injury early in spring training–it was called a glute injury at the time–but recovered enough to begin the season on the active roster as a setup man after losing the closer competition to Matt Lindstrom. However, he aggravated the injury Thursday and the White Sox decided to shut him down.
Jones heads to the DL with an infinite ERA, having allowed four runs without recording an out in two appearances. He faced five total batters, giving up two hits and three walks.
