The 2018 season marks Jordan's 9th season in professional bsaeball.

Jordan was drafted by the Washington Nationals in the 9th round of the 2009 MLB Draft out of Brevard (FL) Community College. Jordan would pitch in parts of three seasons with the MLB Washington Nationals from 2013-2015. Jordan broke out in 2013 pitching for the Double-A Harrisburg Senators where he dominated, going 7-0 in 8 starts, owning a 0.83 ERA, while spinning two complete game shutouts. For his efforts, Jordan was called up to the Nationals and made his major league debut on June 29, 2013 where he pitched 4.1 innings, allowing only 1 earned run in his first big league start. Jordan would pick up his first MLB win later that season on July 28th, pitching 6 innings, allowing only 5 hits and 1 earned run, while racking up 7 strikeouts. In nine starts for the Nationals during the 2013 season, Jordan posted a 3.66 ERA over 51.2 innings pitched, while owning a 57.5% groundball rate and a 5.1 K/9 against a 1.9 BB/9.

Jordan opened the 2014 season in the Nationals starting rotation where he started 5 games before being shut down due to an elbow injury. He split the 2015 season between the MLB Nationals and their Triple-A affiliate, the Syracuse Chiefs. Jordan began the 2016 season impressing with the Triple-A Chiefs, owning a 1.72 ERA in 3 starts before undergoing his second Tommy John surgery which would force him to miss the rest of the season and the entire 2017 season.
