Nationals promote LHP Rivero, demote RHP Jordan


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) The Nationals have promoted left-hander Felipe Rivero from Triple-A Syracuse and sent righty Taylor Jordan back to the same team.

Director of player development Mark Scialabba said they liked what they saw out of Rivero during spring training, masnsports.com reports.

"Obviously electric arm. The fastball comes out good," Scialabba said. "He jumps on hitters and its just matter of him harnessing his stuff and just getting repetition. He certainly opened some eyes in spring training and had a great camp. He showed the ability to throw strikes and utilize his fastball, slider combination and a changeup as well that can play up here."

The move gives Washington two southpaws for its weekend series against Philadelphia. Rivero was off to a slow start in the minors this season with a 10.12 ERA. He performed well, however, in his last two appearances.

"He's powerful. We put him in the relieving role over the last six or seven times on the mound," manager Matt Williams said. "Three (games) at the end of spring training, a couple more in the minor leagues. He's gone back-to-back down there, so we feel confident in that regard. What he's shown us is he's throwing the ball over the plate, it's mid-90s fastball with breaking ball and changeup. We need another lefty, so he's a logical option for us. Power lefty out of the pen."


Nats recall Taylor Jordan as Craig Stammen goes on DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) The Nationals placed reliever Craig Stammen on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday due to right forearm stiffness. The Nationals recalled pitcher Taylor Jordan from Triple-A Syracuse to take Stammen's roster spot.

Stammen made five appearances this season, including recording his second hold Tuesday against the Red Sox. He hasn't allowed a run in four innings.

Stammen said he started to feel stiffness in his forearm a few days ago. He will undergo an MRI.

"I think any time it's in that part of your arm, everybody jumps to the worst-case scenario," Stammen said, per MLB.com. "But hopefully that's not the case. ... But you never know. I'm optimistic about it, and hopefully it's calmed down in a few days."

Jordan made one start this season for Syracuse, tossing six scoreless innings. Jordan has not pitched in relief in the majors, but he has made 14 starts, going 1-6 with a 4.31 ERA.


Nationals announce another round of cuts for spring


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) The Nationals have decided to option pitcher Taylor Jordan to Triple-A Syracuse and reassign pitcher Evan Meek and infielder Matt Stoke to their minor league camp, the team announced.

Jordan posted a 3.38 ERA in four spring training appearances, allowing three runs on seven hits with four strikeouts. Meek had a 7.71 ERA over 4 2/3 innings, allowing four runs on five hits with four strikeouts.

Stoke did not make an appearance in spring training.


Nationals SP Taylor Jordan focused on staying healthy


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Nationals starting pitcher Taylor Jordan entered camp last spring competing for a spot in the rotation. This spring, it's a much different picture as there is no spot up for grabs in the team's rotation.

Although, this spring Jordan is focused on staying healthy after he hurt his ankle in 2013 and his elbow in 2014.

“Being healthy is the first thing on my list, and then staying healthy,” Jordan said Sunday, per The Washington Times. “I’m going to perform. If I’m healthy, I’m going to perform. So just staying healthy is the name of the game.

“Last year I didn’t come into spring training like I really wanted to. I wasn’t as strong as I am now, or in the year before that. It only makes sense that’s why I couldn’t stay healthy last year.”


Nationals activate Nate McLouth, Taylor Jordan from DL


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) The Nationals have activated Nate McLouth and Taylor Jordan from the 60-day disabled list Friday.

Players can't remain on the 60-day DL throughout the offseason, so the moves were expected. McLouth had surgery on his labrum in August. Jordan spent most of the season injured before undergoing arm surgery in October.

No structural damage in Taylor Jordan's elbow


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Taylor Jordan gets MRI for elbow injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Nationals starting pitcher Taylor Jordan recently met with team physician Dr. Wiemi Douguih for a second opinion on the elbow injury that has kept him sidelined at Triple-A Syracuse since early June, according to The Washington Post.

"He had an MRI. The MRI is fine. We wanted to see, what’s the discomfort coming from?" general manager Mike Rizzo said.

Jordan had Tommy John surgery in 2011, but the team is confident he won't need the surgery this time.

"We’re not too worried about that," Rizzo said. "The doctors told me that’s not what they’re thinking about. They want to find out what it is. It’s more discomfort than anything else. We want to find out what it is so we can make him comfortable, so he can possibly help us down the road."


Taylor Jordan OK after leaving Triple-A start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

Taylor Jordan struggles through third straight loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2014) Nationals starting pitcher Taylor Jordan struggled yet again in a 7-2 loss to the Angels Tuesday, his third loss in a row.

Jordan struggled from the very start of the outing, though it wasn't entirely his fault. Jordan allowed four runs on four hits in the top of the first inning, though two of those runs were unearned thanks to a fielding error by his third baseman.

Still, Jordan wasn't particularly good even when accounting for the defense's issues. He was charged with six runs -- four earned -- in five innings of work, on eight hits. He did not walk any batters, while striking out five, but gave up two home runs before being pulled from the game.

Jordan has dropped three decisions in a row since opening the season with six-plus one-run innings. He now has a 6.23 ERA heading into his next start, Sunday against the Padres.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Jordan took the loss after allowing seven runs -- five earned -- in 5 1/3 innings of work, and he was in trouble from the start. Jordan was tagged for four runs in the first inning, though one of them was unearned. He allowed seven hits and a pair of walks, while striking out four and throwing 61 of 96 pitches for strikes.

Jordan is now 0-2 through his first three starts of the season, and has allowed 10 of his 11 earned runs over the last two outings.  He has a 5.94 ERA heading into his next start, set for Tuesday against the Angels.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Jordan (0-1) ran into trouble early on, allowing four runs in the opening frame, including a home run to B.J. Upton. He also allowed a run-scoring single to Dan Uggla before his outing ended in the fifth. He permitted five runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings pitched.

Jordan has posted a 4.76 ERA along with an 8:4 K:BB ratio over 11 1/3 innings pitched. He'll look to get back on track Thursday at home against St. Louis.

Tanner Roark and Taylor Jordan make opening day roster


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) When it comes to the Nationals fifth starter, everybody wins, according to MLB.com.

Both Tanner Roark and Taylor Jordan have been informed that they've made the team's opening day roster. An official announcement is expected to be made Saturday. Both players should have an opportunity to start at least one time through the rotation, as Doug Fister is doubtful to make his first start due to a lat injury. It's unclear which pitcher will stay in the rotation once Fister returns, though Roark seems to be the slight favorite. For now, both pitchers will get a shot to show what they can do.


Nationals pit fifth starter candidates against each other Saturday

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
