|Jimmy Nelson solid in first start |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(9/28/13) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson made his final appearance of the season Saturday, in a spot start against the Mets.
Nelson tossed five solid innings in his first major league start, holding the Mets to one run. He allowed just one hit, while walking three, striking out four and throwing 39 of 73 pitches for strikes.
Nelson left the game with a no-decision, as the Brewers' offense struggled to get going. He finishes the season with 10 innings at the major-league level, after posting a 3.67 ERA in 83 1/3 innings for Triple-A Nashville. The 24-year-old allowed just one run in his four appearances, and could figure into the team's rotation plans in spring training.

|Jimmy Nelson on call to make a start |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(9/24/13) According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Brewers pitching prospect Jimmy Nelson has an opportunity to make his first career major league start this week. Wily Peralta, who is dealing with a blister, may not be able to make his final scheduled start of the season on Saturday, so Nelson could get the call instead to face the Mets.
Nelson has made three relief appearances since his Sept. 3 callup, having allowed only one hit and no runs over five innings.
|Brewers considering a start for Jimmy Nelson |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(9/16/13) The Brewers continue to consider giving top pitching prospect Jimmy Nelson a start before the end of the season, MLB.com reports Monday. That said, manager Ron Roenicke declined to give any kind of date.
Milwaukee already is using a six-man rotation at the moment. Nelson would likely fit into the rotation during the season's final road trip against the Braves or Mets.
"He’s an aggressive guy, and that makes a difference," Roenicke said. "Maybe he’ll be wild, I don’t know. But he’s going to come at you and he’s going to give you his best stuff. Those are the kind of guys you want to see, so if we can get him in there, we want to see him."
