(5/28/2013) The White Sox have been patient with reliever Nate Jones and don't want to send him to the minors, ESPN reports Tuesday.
"Right now (Jones) needs to fix it here," manager Robin Ventura said. "We've seen it. It's there. I don't know if it's the lack of confidence or what. Stuff wise, it's not a velocity issue at all. It's going to be more location and the confidence of being able to continue to do that."
Jones has a 7.04 ERA in 19 appearances for the White Sox. He has a 2.39 ERA over 65 appearances since last year as a rookie.
"There’s only a few inches of bull’s eye on their barrel," Jones said. "That’s all it can be, a couple of inches here or there. It’s a matter of them hitting it on the barrel, hitting it on the end or hitting it on the inside. That’s all it can be."
