    Nate Jones: Hanging up cleats

    Nate Jones' agent, Joe Speed of Sterling Sports Management, announced Thursday via his personal Twitter account that his client is retiring from baseball.After beginning his professional career in 2007 as a fifth-round pick of the White Sox, Jones reached the majors for the first time in 2012 and proceeded to spend parts of 10 seasons in the big leagues. Between stops with the White Sox, Reds, Braves and Dodgers, Jones made all 325 of his career appearances out of the bullpen, logging a 3.45 ERA to go with 78 holds and nine saves. His effectiveness had waned in recent years while he battled a slew of injuries, and after receiving his release from the Dodgers in June and garnering limited interest on the open market, Jones elected to call it quits.

    Nate Jones: Elects free agency

    Nate Jones declined an assignment to the minor leagues and is now a free agent, Eric Stephen of reports.The Dodgers outrighted Jones to their Triple-A club after he cleared waivers Saturday, but the veteran reliever exercised his option to decline the assignment and opted instead for free agency. The right-hander posted a 5.68 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 14:12 K:BB in 19 innings with the Dodgers this season after registering a 6.27 ERA with Cincinnati last year, but his more palatable career numbers -- including a 3.45 ERA and 9.7 K/9 -- could inspire another organization to give him a big-league opportunity.

    Dodgers' Nate Jones: Impressive in Dodgers debut

    Nate Jones earned a hold against the Giants on Friday, pitching a perfect 1.2 innings and collecting two strikeouts.The right-hander made his Los Angeles Dodgers debut after being let go by Atlanta on May 10. He provided some help for a short-handed bullpen and looked great in the process, protecting a one-run lead. Jones has four holds overall this season and could work his way into a permanent spot among Los Angeles' relief corps if he's able to consistently pitch as effectively as he did Friday.

    Dodgers' Nate Jones: Joins Dodgers on minors deal

    Nate Jones joined the Los Angeles Dodgers on a minor-league deal Friday and was assigned to Triple-A Oklahoma City.Jones threw 10.1 innings for Atlanta this this season, and while he only allowed four earned runs, his 7:10 K:BB was poor enough to lead to his release. Coming off a season in which he struggled to a 6.27 ERA, there's little reason to be confident the 35-year-old will make much of an impact in Los Angeles this season.

    Nate Jones: Let go by Atlanta

    Nate Jones was released by Atlanta on Monday.Jones' 3.48 ERA through 10.1 innings this season is far from terrible, but the rest of his numbers aren't anything close to good. He struck out just 14.0 percent of opposing batters while walking 20.0 percent and generating a very low 28.1 percent groundball rate. Those numbers may leave him stuck looking for a minor-league deal.

    Braves' Nate Jones: Optioned off roster

    Nate Jones was optioned to Atlanta's alternate training site Monday.Jones owns a perfectly respectable 3.48 ERA through 10.1 innings this season, but he hasn't gotten there in a remotely sustainable way. His 14.0 percent strikeout rate, 20.0 percent walk rate and 28.1 percent groundball rate are all very poor. He may need some good outings in the minors before he earns another big-league opportunity.
