Nationals Injury Update: Taylor Jordan has bone chips removed from elbow

By on 10/24/2014 06:15:00 PM

Nationals right-hander Taylor Jordan had surgery to remove bone chips from his right elbow in September and should be ready by spring training, according to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post.

Jordan, 25, made five starts in April for the Nationals (0-3, 5.63 ERA) and was sent to Triple-A Syracuse when Doug Fister was activated. After only two starts in Syracuse he was shut down with elbow soreness.

A 9th round draft pick in 2009, Jordan spent the 2012 season recovering from Tommy John surgery and was promoted to the majors in June 2013, making nine starts with a 3.66 ERA. He was shut down for the season after 52 innings with a lower back strain in August. In the spring of 2014 he lost out to Tanner Roark for the fifth spot in the Nationals Rotation. Jordan is pre-arb and under team control through the 2019 season.
