The move comes ahead of Fister’s expected return from the DL next week and in the meantime the Nationals decided they’d rather have an extra reliever in Ryan Mattheus.
Jordan posted incredible numbers in the minors last season, going 9-1 with a 1.00 ERA in 90 innings between Double-A and Triple-A as a 24-year-old, and then he tossed 52 innings with a 3.66 ERA in his Nationals debut. He’ll be back at some point and still projects as a solid part of the Nationals’ plans long term.
