Taylor Jordan was hit around by the Blue Jays in a loss on Wednesday, serving up seven runs in six innings of work.

The Jays exploded for four runs in the first inning, but the shorthanded Nationals needed Jordan to eat some innings. He remained in the game and settled down for the most part until the end of his outing. Jordan gave up 10 hits, walked one, and struck out four. The right-hander has made one relief appearance lasting 4 2/3 innings along with Wednesday's start and the results have not been good, but the Nationals could have him take the hill again. He would be on track to face the Yankees in the Bronx.

Taylor Jordan will start on Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

It was expected, but Nationals manager Matt Williams had been delaying the announcement in case Jordan was needed during Tuesday's doubleheader. With Stephen Strasburg (neck) and Doug Fister (elbow) on the shelf, Jordan could make a few starts if he pitches well.

Nationals manager Matt Williams suggested that Taylor Jordan could start Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

That's assuming he isn't needed during Tuesday's doubleheader. Jordan allowed three runs on six hits and two walks over 4 2/3 innings Saturday in relief of Stephen Strasburg. We'd steer clear of him in mixed leagues if he gets the assignment.
