The White Sox placed Daniel Webb on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a right back strain and returned right-hander Nate Jones from his injury rehab assignment in Charlotte.

Jones began the season on the disabled list while he recovered from Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. He appeared in three games with Class A Winston-Salem and six with Triple-A Charlotte during his rehab. He compiled a 1.93 ERA.

“I’m pretty excited about it,” Jones said. “It’s going to be hard to contain it out there whenever I do get to pitch, but I think after that first pitch we can finally put a closing on the whole rehab process so I’m looking forward to that.”

Jones has not pitched in the majors since April 3, 2014.

“I feel stronger, because I think we cleaned up my mechanics a little bit,” Jones said. “Got everything going towards the plate, and it makes a lot less stress on everything else on your body. I feel stronger and I feel better.”

Webb has gone 1-0 with a 2.49 ERA and 15 strikeouts in 17 relief appearances this season.
