Davey wouldn't call out Jordan by name in the pre-game interview, but he basically said he's pitching Saturday in NY.

Davey just spilled the beans on the Junkies that Jordan was starting this weekend.

Asked why Taylor was starting over guys in AAA? Davey said Taylor "is just better."

Rizzo unwilling to commit to either Jordan or Ohlendorf on the radio just now.

Pitched about 22 innings, gave up 17 hits, 22 walks, and struck out 22. Looking at him game by game, he looks fine one game and gets plastered the next.

it sounds like he would fit in perfectly on this team. :)

Taylor Jordan named to the 2013 Futures Game.  Will be the only member of the Nats organization there.  Great honor for him.

This may be behind a paywall, but if you have CBS as your fantasy stat provider, you can get Scott White's write up "down on the farm" that has a write up on Jordan

Quote
Taylor Jordan, SP, Nationals
Affiliate: Double-A Harrisburg
2013 stats (Class A, Double-A): 9-1, 1.00 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, 72 strikeouts, 15 walks, 68 hits and one home run allowed in 15 outings (90 1/3 innings)
Jordan is Brad Peacock 2.0 in that their careers are following a similar path. Much like Peacock, who was a former Washington farmhand, Jordan's career was going nowhere fast until a breakout run in the minors. Peacock's happened in 2011 after he made some changes to his delivery. Jordan's is happening the further he gets away from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in 2011. Jordan had an "excellent offseason," according to Nationals director of player development Doug Harris (per MASNsports.com), and his success in 2013 has been fueled by his sinker. He's now expected to be the latest rising prospect to make his MLB debut as he takes over in the Nationals' rotation for the injured Dan Haren (shoulder). Though, Fantasy owners should merely view Jordan as a potential stopgap option. Even if he succeeds for Washington, he's already up to 90 1/3 innings and has never pitched more than 94 1/3 innings as a pro. And don't forget this is also his first full season back after having Tommy John surgery, and we've seen how careful the Nationals were with Stephen Strasburg and Jordan Zimmermann coming off the same procedure. Jordan is going to be shut down at some point, so it's probably not wise to make a major investment in the right-hander.

Interesting point about the inning load.  70 innings until he hits 160, or 12 - 14 starts, I'm guessing, if he averages between 5 and 6 innings.  That takes him out to about the end of August, which is when JZ and SS were shut down.

An article from late May suggested arm soreness

Quote
Nationals minor league pitchers Taylor Jordan and Matt Purke both suffered injuries, with Jordan leaving a Class AAA Syracuse start Tuesday afternoon after three innings and Purke landing on the disabled list at Class AA Harrisburg.

A Nationals official said the team is “currently gathering information and assessing both pitchers.”
Jordan, a member of the Nationals’ opening day rotation, allowed two runs in three innings and felt soreness in his arm. Syracuse’s bullpen hurriedly sprung to action, and Jordan exited the game.

Key is velo. Guy might be a decent #4/5 starter at 92 MPH, he's not a major leaguer at 89 MPH, no matter his success in the minors. At least not on this team. Maybe on the Barves  :hysterical:
