Braves' Nate Jones: Contract selected by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones' contract was selected by Atlanta on Saturday.

Jones was expected to make Atlanta's Opening Day roster after tossing 6.1 scoreless innings this spring, and he was officially added to the 40-man roster Saturday. He should begin the season as a middle reliever.

Braves' Nate Jones: Set to make Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is expected to make Atlanta's Opening Day roster, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

The 35-year-old joined the Braves on a minor-league deal in February and performed well in spring training with 6.1 scoreless frames. Jones should open the season in middle relief for Atlanta.

Braves' Nate Jones: Signs MiLB deal with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones signed a minor-league deal with the Braves on Tuesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

The 35-year-old struggled in 21 appearances for the Reds in 2020 with a 6.27 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 23:6 K:BB over 18.2 innings. Jones had a 3.12 ERA over the prior eight seasons for the White Sox, but he was limited to only 52 innings from 2017-19 due multiple arm injuries. The right-hander could be a solid bullpen piece if he's able to rediscover his form and stay healthy.

Nate Jones: Cut by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was released by the Reds on Friday.

The veteran right-hander was designated for assignment earlier in the week and will now hit free agency. Jones had a 6.27 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 23:6 K:BB with four holds over 18.2 innings before getting DFA'd.

Reds' Nate Jones: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was designated for assignment by the Reds on Tuesday.

Jones makes way for Sonny Gray, who returns from a back injury to start against the Brewers. Jones threw 18.2 innings for the Reds this season, struggling to a 6.27 ERA and 1.66 WHIP while allowing five homers, though his 23:6 K:BB wasn't bad at all.

Reds' Nate Jones: Reinstated Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was reinstated from the paternity list prior to Thursday's game against the Cubs.

Jones has a 5.93 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 16 strikeouts in 13.2 innings this season. He should pitch in low-to-mid leverage situations going forward.

Reds' Nate Jones: Lands on paternity list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was placed on the paternity list Tuesday.

Players typically spend three days on the paternity list, though pandemic-related complications could lead to some logistical delays when he returns to the team. Jose De Leon was called up in a corresponding move.

Reds' Nate Jones: Poor recent results
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones has given up homers in his last two outings while allowing four runs over 1.2 innings, seeing his ratios skyrocket to a 6.75 ERA and 1.71 WHIP.

At one point, Jones was manager David Bell's first choice to protect the ninth inning, but that's no longer the case. He has three holds on the year, however, and might be called upon Saturday with a few key Reds relievers being used heavily the last couple of days.

Reds' Nate Jones: Allows homer in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones joined the list of Reds relievers to allow a homer this season, giving up a round-tripper to David Bote on Tuesday night.

Jones, Amir Garrett and Michael Lorenzen all allowed homers as the Reds' bullpen once again proved leaky. A unit that was thought to be a strength for the Reds has been come up short on multiple occasions this season.

Reds' Nate Jones: Earns roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will be included on the Reds' Opening Day roster.

The veteran right-hander joined Cincinnati as a non-roster invitee in January, and he apparently showed enough between spring and summer training to earn a spot on the roster. Jones missed most of last season due to forearm surgery, though he posted a 3.00 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 32:15 K:BB over 30 innings with the White Sox in 2018.

Reds' Nate Jones: Joins 60-man player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will be a part of the Reds' 60-man player pool this season.

He was in camp as a non-roster invitee but is listed as part of the 35-man group that will train at Great American Ball Park, which puts him among the Reds' varsity group. A forearm injury limited Jones to three innings in spring training, so he likely benefited from the long layoff.

Reds' Nate Jones: Could make spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (forearm) is listed among the available relievers for Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Cubs, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Jones' inclusion on the lineup card doesn't necessarily mean he'll get on the mound for his spring debut, but it's an indication that the right-hander has responded well to facing hitters in live-batting practice sessions thus far in camp. The non-roster invitee entered camp behind the Reds' other pitchers while he continued to recover from the surgery he required last May to address a torn flexor mass. Jones is expected to open the 2020 season at Triple-A Louisville.

Reds' Nate Jones: Throws live BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (forearm) threw live batting practice Wednesday for the first time this spring, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Jones had flexor mass surgery last May, and he's behind schedule compared to his teammates in Reds camp. As a non-roster invitee to camp, however, he can begin the season in Triple-A Louisville without having to clear waivers first.

February 15, 2020 01:20 AM
Reds' Nate Jones: Not throwing yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (forearm) won't be pitching in games until the second week of the spring training schedule, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Jones is still working his way back from surgery to repair a torn flexor mass back in May. If healthy, he could be a weapon for the Reds, as he owns a 3.12 ERA in parts of eight seasons in the big leagues, but his health can't be close to being counted on. He's thrown over 30 innings in just three of those seasons and has thrown just 52 total innings over the last three years combined.

Reds' Nate Jones: Latches on with Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (forearm) signed a minor-league deal with the Reds on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Jones had his 2020 club option turned down by the Rangers in October, but he'll have a chance to state his case for the Reds' Opening Day roster in spring training. The 33-year-old was limited to 13 games in 2019 and had a 3.48 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 10:7 K:BB across 10.1 innings before undergoing right forearm surgery in May. Jones has good numbers over the last five years (2.67 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 164:49 K:BB over 141.2 innings), but he's been limited to 147 appearances due to injuries.

Nate Jones: Club option declined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones' club option for 2020 was declined by the Rangers, making him a free agent, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

Jones missed most of 2019 after undergoing forearm surgery and was acquired by the Rangers at the trade deadline along with international slot compensation and cash considerations. The 33-year-old recorded a 3.48 ERA with a 1.65 WHIP over 10.1 innings pitched in 2019.

July 31, 2019 08:12 PM
Rangers' Nate Jones: Shipped to Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers acquired Jones (forearm) from the White Sox on Wednesday in addition to international slot compensation and cash considerations. In exchange, Texas will send minor-league pitchers Joe Jarneski and Ray Castro to Chicago.

Jones is on the mend from surgery to address a right forearm strain and has been ruled out for the rest of the 2019 season, so the Rangers likely only agreed to take him on in order to receive the compensation package. The righty's contract contains a modest $3.75 million club option for 2020, but his troubling injury history could prompt the Rangers to view him as a sunk cost and buy him out for $1.25 million.

White Sox's Nate Jones: Opts for season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (forearm) underwent season-ending surgery Monday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Jones was diagnosed with a tear in his flexor mass. While the right-hander is expected to miss the remainder of the season, it remains to be seen exactly how long he'll remain sidelined.

White Sox's Nate Jones: Out until at least late June
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox transferred Jones (forearm) to the 60-day injured list Monday.

Jones was placed on the 10-day injured list April 28 after being diagnosed with right elbow inflammation, but Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times relays that the 33-year-old's injury has since been reclassified as a flexor pronator strain of his forearm. The more significant injury will be accompanied by a longer recovery timeline, as Jones' move to the 60-day IL will leave him unavailable through at least late June. Outfielder Charlie Tilson will assume Jones' spot on the 40-man roster.

White Sox's Nate Jones: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday.

Jones is battling right elbow inflammation and heads to the injured list as a result. He's pitched 10.1 innings this season, recording a 3.48 ERA and 1.65 WHIP to go along with 10 strikeouts.
