The White Sox have activated Nate Jones from the 60-Day DL.  To make room on the roster for him, Daniel Webb has been placed on the 15-Day DL with a "mid-right back strain".

Jones had Tommy John surgery last season after injuring his elbow while rehabbing from lower back surgery.  He took part in spring training with the White Sox but never appeared in a game.  He stated his actual rehab with Winston-Salem on July 10.  On July 20, he moved to Charlotte.  Over 6⅓ innings at Charlotte, he's given up three hits, one run, two walks and three strikeouts, although all the strikeouts were in his last game on August 2. That comes out to a 1.42 ERA and a 4.90 FIP.

Prior to today, there's been no mention of an injury for Webb, so we'll have to assume it happened in the game last night.  While Webb does have a nice 2.49 ERA, his FIP is up to 5.31 due to the 10 walks he gave up in July over 9⅓ innings.

As part of the activation from the 60-Day DL, Jones was added to the 40-man roster as well.  That takes the 40-man roster up to 39.
