The only tweak I'd make to Jones' role is not to use him as a mid-inning RP but as say a 7th or 8th inning guy. For whatever reason, he shuts down teams when he enters with the bases empty, but he's a seive with inherited runners. Obviously, as a rookie, there's probably some room to grow, but for the time being, may as well use him in situations he's most likely to succeed.
