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.

    He has an impeccable record so far this season. Condolences to those people who drafted him thinking that he would be Chicago’s closer.

    it’s stories like these that make me happy I drafted only one closer this season

      It’s enough to make you want to punt saves altogether. And I mean for real MLB managers and GMs, not just fantasy players.

      Pick him up and stash him when people panic-drop him. He’s not healthy right now and Ventura is notoriously fickle.

    They lost to the Twinkies! Ouch!
