RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Brian Jordan.
Jordan has had knee problems the past two seasons and he could retire after sitting out most of 2005. He returned from knee problems to post a decent September and actually started a game in the playoffs. A spring-training invitee with the Braves, he's unlikely to win any kind of sizable role given his injury risk and rapidly declining skill set.
A knee injury limited Jordan to 212 largely useless at-bats in 2004. Texas declined his $4 million option, shocking no one in the process, and Jordan then signed a one-year deal with the Braves in January. He'll be the likely starter in left field to start the season, but his inability to stay healthy means he likely won't hold the job long. Even if healthy his numbers are on the decline and he's a batting average risk.
The Dodgers will be paying Jordan $2.5 million to make sure he doesn't play for them in 2004. It will be money well spent. Jordan, 37, can't stay healthy and still has not learned enough patience at the plate to be anything more than an average outfielder.
He's in the last year of his contract which he signed with Atlanta and since he was dealt in the middle of it, he has demanded a trade. Therefore, he may be playing elsewhere in 2003 but at a $9 million price tag, he'll be difficult to deal. At his age (35) and with his history of back problems, the Dodgers should consider taking what they can get for Jordan in trade. He's just the type of player who could collapse into uselessness this year.
