2018 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: DON'T FORGET NATE JONES FOR POSSIBLE SAVES IN CHICAGO WHITE SOX LAND

With the Chicago White Sox fully immersed in a massive rebuild and thus expected to one of the worst teams in the majors in 2018, counting on saves from whoever closes for the team is not a good strategy if you are looking for a high tally of handshakes from here.  With save opportunities likely being few and far between, 30 saves may be all that is available here.  However we still need to find saves wherever we can and the correct assumption right now would be to assume veteran Joakim Sorua is the favorite for the ninth inning after the former All-Star stopper came over via trade last week.  Soria still misses bats at a very high level and while he is not as dynamic as he once was earlier in his career, he has health going for him right now as well.  That can't totally be said for Nate Jones who is the other possible contender for saves with the White Sox this season.  Jones currently is recovering from elbow surgery where a nerve was repositioned in he joint in 2017.  Having only thrown 11 innings last season, Jones has fallen well off the radar.  However like Soria, Jones is capable of missing a high number of at-bats and at one time he seemed like a future closer candidate who had a lot of potential.  So Jones at the very least should be placed back into your consciousness in terms of your fantasy baseball closing cheat sheets and this is a situation that bears watching during spring training.
