Moving On Up for NPPThe Potomac Nationals have announced that RHP Taylor Jordan has been promoted to Harrisburg.

Jordan was 2-1 with a line of 1.24/2.46/1.02 (ERA/FIP/WHIP – It’s not a thing… yet) in six starts, including eight scoreless innings last Friday night. In 36⅓ innings, he allowed nine runs (five earned) on 31 hits with 29 strikeouts and six (6) walks.

As mentioned in “First Impressions,” Jordan has picked up where he left off in 2011, when he was 9-4, 2.48/2.92/1.20 in 17 starts for Hagerstown before undergoing Tommy John surgery (making him one of the M*A*S*H players on the 2013 Watchlist). He features a FB/SL/CH arsenal, but appears to have shelved (as predicted) the curveball spotted when I first saw him in 2010.

A corresponding move to backfill his spot on the Potomac roster has not yet been announced. Brian Dupra, promoted last week from Hagerstown, will take his scheduled start tonight in Wilmington, as the official release terms the move as a “spot start.”

As of this writing, Taylor is not scheduled to start tonight, however, as beat writer Geoff Morrow noted earlier today, tonight’s scheduled pitcher for the Senators — Paul Demny — has been struggling mightily and is a candidate to get moved to the ‘pen or demoted.

UPDATE: The Harrisburg Senators have sent RHP Brian Broderick to the DL to make room for Jordan, who will take Broderick’s spot in the rotation and make his AA debut on Saturday

  1. Great news, glad to see it happen for him.

  2. Always been a favourite of mine. Good to see him get rewarded.

  3. And of course, Demny goes out and throws a combined no-hitter, ha!
