RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Jordan had a spirited duel with Tanner Roark last year in spring training over who would be the eventual fifth starter for the Nationals, but that proved to be the highlight of the season for him. After a handful of rough big league starts and declining radar gun readings in April he was sent back to Triple-A, only to come down with elbow soreness that eventually required surgery to remove bone chips, not unheard of for someone three years removed from Tommy John surgery. When he's healthy, the 26-year-old right-hander pounds the bottom of the strike zone with a low-90s fastball, sharp slider, and effective changeup, and with two-fifths of the Nats' current rotation not under contract past 2015, there's plenty of room in the organization's future plans for an arm like Jordan's. He'll most likely need to re-establish himself at Triple-A, but he's a sleeper if injuries or trades open up a spot for him.

2014

After starting the season at High-A, Jordan put together an incredible display of control that took him straight through to a second-half trial with the Nationals. The Doug Fister trade likely locks him out of any shot at a rotation spot to begin 2014, but it also provides him with an excellent role model for the type of pitcher he'll need to become to have sustained success in the majors. If Jordan can continue to generate weak contact at Triple-A, he'll cement his spot in Washington's future plans.
