 Biographical Information
Jones was an above-average relief pitcher over most of his eight-year career. He gave up fewer hits than innings pitched in his career, 415 hits in 433 innings. Jones had a career ERA of 3.66, which is an ERA+ of 102. He was Bobby Thigpen's main right-handed set-up man when Thigpen saved 57 games for the Chicago White Sox in 1990. He was then traded to the Montréal Expos after that season, along with OF Ivan Calderon, in the deal that sent OF Tim Raines to Chicago. Jones led the Expos in saves in 1991 with 13, but was generally considered a disappointment - his record was 4-9 and he had 8 blown saves - and was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies after the season, netting the Expos catcher Darrin Fletcher.
He had one career hit in 16 at bats; it came on August 22, 1986 as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates against Ed Olwine of the Atlanta Braves. He also got a save in that game, pitching the last 3 and 2/3 innings giving up no hits, no runs 2 walks and striking out 2. The Pirates won the game, 16-5.
