Nationals right-hander Taylor Jordan underwent surgery in September to remove bone chips from his elbow, according to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post. Jordan is expected to be ready for spring training.

Jordan pitched well in nine starts for the Nationals as a 24-year-old rookie last season, but then went 0-3 with a 5.61 ERA in five starts this year before being shut down in June.

Bone chip removal is a relatively minor procedure, but Jordan was no lock to crack the Opening Day pitching staff anyway.
