With Doug Fister on the same schedule as Jordan during his rehab starts -- Fister will pitch on Sunday for Class A Potomac -- Jordan is likely the odd man out when Fister returns. With the Nationals looking at three off-days over the next 11 days, a poor start on Sunday could give Washington the opportunity to skip one of Jordan's next outings. But Nationals manager Matt Williams was noncommittal about that option.
"The way it's set, right now, barring some kind of change -- and I can't tell you what would change, if anything -- but everybody will go and then get an extra day," Williams said. "That's the plan."
