Jimmy Nelson gets the call Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/10/14) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson has been called up Thursday.

Nelson will take the roster spot of Wei-Chung Wang, who hit the disabled list. It's unclear whether Nelson will pitch out of the rotation or the bullpen. Nelson has been rumored to be a candidate to replace Marco Estrada in the team's rotation, but they haven't announced the move yet. Nelson has a 1.46 ERA over 111 innings in Triple-A. 

Time to add Jimmy Nelson?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/10/14) Word is Jimmy Nelson could enter the Brewers starting rotation as early as Saturday, replacing the beleaguered Marco Estrada. It's little more than speculation right now, but considering he's arguably the most anticipated pitching prospect yet to get an extended look in the majors this year, it might be reason enough to act.

Does that mean you should add him across the board? Maybe not. Look, he's no Taijuan Walker in terms of ability, but his exact upside is difficult to pinpoint with the kind of year he's had at Triple-A Nashville, going 10-2 with a 1.46 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 9.2 strikeouts per nine innings. And that's in the Pacific Coast League, which is widely considered to be one of the most hitter-friendly leagues in all the minors.

Coming into the year, Nelson was presumed to be little more than a mid-rotation type, but that's when he was plagued by control issues that have been nowhere to be found this year. He has issued just 2.6 walks per nine innings.

The raw stuff is good. He throws a mid-90s fastball with good sink, which all but assures he won't get burned by home runs in the big leagues, and he has enough of a secondary arsenal to miss bats with regularity. Plus, because of the time he spent in the majors last season, he's eligible at relief pitcher, which is huge in Head-to-Head points leagues.

So maybe he's not high-end enough to be must-add before he even arrives, but if he fills a need for you, why not take a flier?

Brewers possibly considering rotation change
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/10/14) Though no decision has been made, the Brewers are considering a switch for Saturday's start, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Marco Estrada is currently listed as the starting pitcher for the game against the Cardinals, but the report indicates a call up for prospect Jimmy Nelson is looming. Nelson has been tearing things up at Triple-A Nasville, while Estrada is the major-league leader in home runs allowed, with 27.

Manager Ron Roenicke was even asked if it was safe to assume Estrada will make his schedule start, and he replied, "I won't comment on that."

Roenicke was non-committal when asked whether the team is considering Nelson, but indicated that they would not necessarily have to wait until after the All-Star break to make any sort of change.

"Sometimes you wait until the all-star break to do things," he said. "But when the timing calls for something to be done, you try to do it. If it makes sense right then, why wait on something? That's what we talk about all the time. We talk about what goes on in here, how guys are feeling right now, and do we need a change?"

Brewers have discussed Jimmy Nelson promotion
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/8/14) The Brewers have discussed promoting pitcher Jimmy Nelson from Triple-A, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Manager Ron Roenicke said "there has been discussion" about a callup, but did not elaborate. Nelson has a 1.46 ERA over 111 innings in the minors this season.
