Ricardo Jordan was acquired along with Toby Borland from the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for Rico Brogna prior to the 1997 season. Jordan was slated to be a member of the Mets bullpen but unfortunately it didn’t work out as planned as Jordan struggled all season. Jordan was the losing pitcher in two of his first three appearances during which he posted an ERA of 13.50. He settled down somewhat after his rough start but was sent down to the minors at the beginning of May with his ERA at 4.32. He returned to New York in June but once again struggled. He did manage to win a game on June 29th. Following that game, he was once again sent down to the minors only to return in September when the rosters expanded but he continued to struggle and finished the season with a 1-2 record and 5.33 ERA in 27 innings.
