Taylor Jordan struggles through third straight loss
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Nationals starting pitcher Taylor Jordan struggled yet again in a 7-2 loss to the Angels Tuesday, his third loss in a row.

Jordan struggled from the very start of the outing, though it wasn't entirely his fault. Jordan allowed four runs on four hits in the top of the first inning, though two of those runs were unearned thanks to a fielding error by his third baseman.

Still, Jordan wasn't particularly good even when accounting for the defense's issues. He was charged with six runs -- four earned -- in five innings of work, on eight hits. He did not walk any batters, while striking out five, but gave up two home runs before being pulled from the game.

Jordan has dropped three decisions in a row since opening the season with six-plus one-run innings. He now has a 6.23 ERA heading into his next start, Sunday against the Padres.

Timeline becomes more clear for Doug Fister
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Nationals starting pitcher Doug Fister will make his first minor-league rehab start Saturday for Class A Potomac, and he is starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel in his recovery from a strained lat.

Fister will likely make just two rehab starts, according to CSNWashington.com Tuesday. Fister, who threw a 44-pitch extended spring training start Tuesday, will pitch Saturday in Potomac and then will make one more rehab start, likely targeting five innings of work the following Thursday.

Assuming Fister can get through these final hurdles, he could return from the disabled list for his season debut on or around May 7.
