Latest Taylor Jordan Items
The Nationals made a bold trade to boost their rotation, acquiring Doug Fister from Detroit for Steve Lombardozzi, Ian Krol and Robbie Ray.
An 8-5 defeat by the Milwaukee Brewers in a game the Nationals led by three runs in the sixth inning capped a 2-3 road trip. The Nationals have a 54-57 record to pair with an ever-growing deficit in the National League East (12) and the Wild Card (6 ½).
As they packed their clubhouse Sunday afternoon, preparing for a five-game road swing through Detroit and Milwaukee, the Nationals were celebrating their fourth victory in the last five games — and the most lopsided win in team history.
The Nationals avoided a getting swept by the Miami Marlins on Sunday with a 5-2 victory in 10 innings that helped them stay above the .500 mark at the break. At 48-47, the Nationals' mood was upbeat, but their task for the rest of this season remains tall.
The Washington Nationals have promoted right-hander Taylor Jordan from Double-A Harrisburg and are having him make his big league debut right away.
Should the Nationals expand their search for another starting pitcher beyond their own organization — where most of the rotation talent is still in the system's lower levels — there will be a number of starters on the market before the July 31 deadline they could consider.
