|Taylor Jordan wants to add cut fastball to repertoire |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(8/18/13) Nationals starting pitcher Taylor Jordan, who has been shut down for the season, should be considered a rotation candidate heading into 2014, according to The Washington Times.
"Hopefully what I did impressed them enough for me to have a chance to be up here next year," he said.
Jordan said he would like to add a cut fastball to his repertoire in the offseason. Jordan relies heavily on his sinking fastball, but also throws a slider and changeup.
"I think that might be useful for me for lefties," he said. "I think I’m going to develop something like that. This is just my own thoughts. I think a cutter is a good pitch. Everyone seems to throw one and everyone’s always talking about it. ‘Oh, he’s throwing a cutter in there.’ No one says that about a sinker, really. They say, ‘Oh, he’s sinking it.’ But it’s not a big deal."

(8/10/13) Nationals starting pitcher Taylor Jordan is set to take the mound Saturday against the Phillies with 131 innings between the majors and the minors, and it could be one of his final starts of the season.
According to MASNSports.com, Jordan is likely to be limited to just 155 innings this season, his first full year back from Tommy John surgery. The team is not going to put a hard limit on him or set a specific date for his final start.
"Like, it really messed up Strasburg last year," manager Davey Johnson said. "I think Taylor is not thinking about, 'What's the number? Do I go four innings or five innings? If I go seven, am I done?' We've explained to him, 'No, you're in the rotation. We'll treat you just like a regular pitcher. You can go as far as you can go. When you look like you're losing it, we'll take you out.'"
Jordan has a 3.76 ERA in 40 2/3 innings over his first seven major-league starts.
