Alexander was 2-1 with a 3.92 ERA for two Northern League clubs in 2000. He made his Team Canada debut that year. Alexander did not pitch in the minor leagues in 2001. He played in the 2001 Baseball World Cup, getting one of Canada's two wins in a weak 2-5 showing. He held a weak Russian national team to one run in eight innings for the victory.

In 2002, Jordy was back in the Western League for a third stint. He was 9-3 with a 3.47 ERA between two teams, spending most of the year with the Long Beach Breakers.
