Player Outlook
Jordan Weems continues to struggle with his control - he has an 11 percent walk rate for his career - but the 31-year-old has shown enough glimpses over the past two years to earn a role in the Nationals 2024 bullpen. He didn't break camp with Washington last year, but was recalled in June and stuck around through the rest of the season. Though Weems struggled in September - he posted a 6.55 ERA, 1.79 WHIP and 11:10 K:BB over 11 innings during the final month - he established career high marks with five wins, seven holds and 60 strikeouts across 54.2 innings. With an upper-90's fastball and effective slider, Weems has the arsenal to be effective in high-leverage, but improving his walk rate will go a long way towards earning a more stable role in the late-innings.

  • Nationals' Jordan Weems: Picks up win Tuesday

    Weems (1-0) recorded a blown save and a win Tuesday against the Giants, giving up two runs (one earned) on three hits in an inning of relief. He struck out one. The right-hander entered a 3-1 game in the sixth inning and couldn't close the door, but the Nationals answered back with a go-ahead run in the top of the seventh. Weems has been solid in the early going, appearing in five of Washington's 11 games and posting a 1.80 ERA and 5:2 K:BB over five innings with two holds in addition to Tuesday's win.

  • Nationals' Jordan Weems: Nabs first hold of season

    Weems (illness) struck out a batter and worked around a walk while allowing no runs over two-thirds of an inning en route to notching his first hold of the season in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Pirates. Weems battled an illness earlier in the week that left him unavailable for the Nationals' series opener versus Pittsburgh, but he looks to be in the clear on the health front. After turning in a 3.62 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 60:28 K:BB in 54.2 innings over his 51 appearances with Washington in 2023, Weems should be a key part of the bridge to the ninth inning this season.

  • Nationals' Jordan Weems: Out Monday with illness

    Weems wasn't available to pitch Monday due to illness, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Weems tossed a scoreless frame Saturday against the Reds but was unavailable in a close ballgame Monday afternoon. He'll be considered day-to-day until further notice. Matt Barnes and Robert Garcia were turned to in a high-leverage situation Monday and could continue to see chances until Weems is back at full strength.

  • Nationals' Jordan Weems: Solid numbers this spring

    Weems has posted a 10:3 K:BB without allowing a home run over 9.2 Grapefruit League innings this spring. The 31-year-old converted catcher established himself as a reliable bullpen option with the Nationals in 2023, recording five wins and seven holds over 51 appearances with a 3.62 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 60:28 K:BB. Weems is on the fringes of high-leverage usage but will begin the season behind Kyle Finnegan, Hunter Harvey and Tanner Rainey in the pecking order from the right side, making him unlikely to see any save chances.

  • Nationals' Jordan Weems: Notches fifth win

    Weems (5-0) was credited with the win Friday, giving up one run on two hits and two walks over one inning of relief in the Nationals' 10-6 victory over Atlanta. He struck out one. The 30-year-old right-hander got tagged for a run for the third time in his last four appearances as he experiences a late-season fade, but Weems was still able to vulture one more win. He's stumbled to a 5.06 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 10:10 K:BB through 10.2 innings in September, and he's far from guaranteed a key role in the Nationals' 2024 bullpen despite his 96 mph fastball and sharp slider.

  • Nationals' Jordan Weems: Collects first career win

    Weems (1-0) walked two and struck out three over two scoreless, no-hit innings of relief Tuesday to pick up the win in an extra-innings victory over the Mariners. The one-time catcher converted to pitching in 2016 and made his big-league in the Oakland bullpen in 2020, but it wasn't until Tuesday he was able to notch his first big-league win. Weems appears to have figured things out in the Washington system, and since his promotion in early June he has a 2.25 ERA, 0.67 WHIP and 11:4 K:BB through 12 innings. The 30-year-old right-hander isn't likely to claim a high-leverage role, however, even if the Nats ship out relievers like Kyle Finnegan before the trade deadline.

  • Nationals' Jordan Weems: Recalled from Triple-A

    Washington recalled Weems from Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday. Weems will jump back into the Nationals' bullpen ahead of Tuesday night's series opener against the Diamondbacks. He worked 2.1 scoreless innings over two appearances in a prior major-league stint and had allowed just one hit across his last 6.1 frames at Triple-A.

  • Nationals' Jordan Weems: Heads back to Triple-A

    The Nationals returned Weems to Triple-A Rochester following Saturday's doubleheader with the Pirates. Weems appeared in both games of the twin bill, working 2.1 innings out of the bullpen in total and striking out three while allowing no runs on one hit and two walks. He'll now head back to Rochester but should be near the top of the list for a promotion the next time the Nationals are in need of an extra bullpen arm.

  • Nationals' Jordan Weems: Serving as 27th man

    Weems will serve as the 27th man for the Nationals in Saturday's doubleheader against the Pirates, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. It's an extra bullpen arm for the Nats in the twin bill versus Pittsburgh. Weems, 30, has posted a 1.93 ERA with 13 strikeouts through 9.1 innings this season at Triple-A Rochester.

  • Nationals' Jordan Weems: Among cuts Tuesday

    The Nationals optioned Weems to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports. Weems held a 5.22 ERA but a 41:12 K:BB over 39.2 innings for the Nats last season. He should get another shot in the big-league bullpen at some point in 2023.

  • Nationals' Jordan Weems: Recalled from Triple-A

    Weems was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Friday. Weems was sent down to the minors in early August after recording a 6.57 ERA and 1.47 WHIP over 24.2 innings. Since then, he's thrown 10 scoreless innings and allowed just two hits in eight appearances. He will provide depth for a Nationals pitching staff that has seen its fair share of injuries lately.

  • Nationals' Jordan Weems: Heads to minors

    The Nationals optioned Weems to Triple-A Rochester on Sunday, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports. Since Weems was unlikely to be available for the next two days after covering 2.1 innings out of the bullpen while giving up three earned runs on four hits in Saturday's 11-5 loss to the Phillies, the Nationals opted to move him off the 26-man active roster. Washington recalled Mason Thompson from Triple-A to fill Weems' spot on the active roster and in the bullpen.

  • Nationals' Jordan Weems: Heads back to Triple-A

    The Nationals optioned Weems to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday. Weems appeared in six games out of the Washington bullpen following his May 31 call-up from Triple-A, covering 6.1 innings while giving up seven earned runs on eight hits and six walks. Francisco Perez was recalled from Rochester to replace Weems in the bullpen.

  • Nationals' Jordan Weems: Contract selected

    Weems' contract was selected by the Nationals on Tuesday. Weems has thrown 19.2 career major-league innings and has struggled to a 6.86 ERA while walking 14.8 percent of opposing batters. He's been much better in 24 frames for Triple-A Rochester this season, posting a 3.38 ERA while striking out 32 batters and walking just five.

  • Nationals' Jordan Weems: Goes to minors

    The Nationals reassigned Weems to minor-league camp Monday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Though he made a strong case for a spot in Washington's Opening Day bullpen by striking out six over five scoreless frames during his four Grapefruit League appearances, Weems will ultimately begin the season with Triple-A Rochester. Weems previously made seven unsuccessful appearances in the majors between Oakland and Arizona last season, giving up 10 earned runs and issuing six walks in 5.2 frames.

  • Diamondbacks' Jordan Weems: Outrighted to Triple-A

    The Diamondbacks outrighted Weems to Triple-A Reno on Thursday. Weems will stay in the organization after none of MLB's other 29 teams put in a claim for the right-handed reliever when he was exposed to waivers earlier in the week. The 28-year-old has appeared in seven games between Oakland and Arizona this season, giving up 10 earned runs on six hits and six walks across 5.2 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Jordan Weems: Officially added to 26-man roster

    Weems was added to the Diamondbacks' 26-man roster prior to Tuesday's game against the Rockies. Weems was claimed off waivers from Oakland on Monday, and he'll now join Arizona's big-league roster, as expected. The right-hander allowed three earned runs on two hits and four walks across 4.1 major-league innings before being DFA'd by the A's on Saturday.

  • Diamondbacks' Jordan Weems: Claimed by Diamondbacks

    Weems was claimed off waivers by the Diamondbacks on Monday. The right-hander was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Saturday, and he should join the Diamondbacks' major-league bullpen after left-hander Ryan Buchter was designated for assignment in a corresponding move. Weems had been with Triple-A Las Vegas since mid-May, and he posted a 7.36 ERA and 1.62 WHIP in 14.2 innings across 15 relief appearances.

  • Athletics' Jordan Weems: Designated for assignment

    The Athletics designated Weems for assignment Saturday. The move was necessary to free up a 40-man roster spot for Sam Moll, whom the team just traded for and called up. Weems posted a 6.23 ERA in 4.1 innings with Oakland this season, striking out four and walking three in his five appearances.

  • Athletics' Jordan Weems: Optioned to Triple-A

    Weems was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday. Weems was promoted Friday but will head back to Triple-A without making an appearance in the majors. Jesus Luzardo (finger) was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
