The Chicago White Sox figure to open the season with Nate Jones as their closer.
Jones, 28, has an upper 90s fastball and struck out 89 batters in 78 inning a season ago.
I still think Nate Jones is the clubhouse closer favorite.

He would assume the closer duties with the trade of Addison Reed earlier this winter. In 70 games lat seaon Jones had a 4.15 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP.
