The Chicago White Sox have placed closer David Robertson on the bereavement list following the death of a family member.

He'll be away from the club for the next three-to-seven games.

Nate Jones is the likely candidate to receive save opportunities in his absence.

Robertson has converted eight of his nine save chances to this point, while holding opponents to a .152 batting average.

Chicago has won six straight games heading into action Thursday against the Baltimore Orioles.
