|Brewers send four to Nashville |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/10/14) The Brewers optioned infielders Hunter Morris and Jason Rogers as well as pitchers Jimmy Nelson and Ariel Pena to Triple-A Nashville Monday, the team announced.
Morris went 2 for 16 in nine games this spring, while Rogers went 4 of 18 with three walks in nine games. Nelson surrendered two earned runs in three innings while striking out four in two appearances. Pena allowed two unearned runs in three hitless innings while striking out two and walking five.
|Brewers no longer have need for rotation competition |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(1/23/14) With Matt Garza agreeing to a four-year, $52 million contract with the Brewers that doesn't bode well for some of the younger starting pitchers -- Tyler Thornburg, Johnny Hellweg, Jimmy Nelson and Will Smith -- who were competing for the final spot in the team's rotation.
"I know it stinks for one of the young guys who was going to be competing for that extra spot, but they’ll have their opportunities," Brewers starting pitcher Kyle Lohse said. "This helps out the rotation a lot, I think. It’s a good thing for us."
|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 will start for injured Wily Peralta |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/24/13) Brewers starter Wily Peralta will miss his final start of the season on Saturday because of a blister on his throwing hand, according to MLB.com on Tuesday. Jimmy Nelson will earn a spot start against the Mets in his place. He posted a 3.67 ERA in 15 starts (83 1/3 innings) at Triple-A Nashville this season.
|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.
|Even though he can reach the mid-90s with his fastball, most scouts limit Jimmy Nelson's upside to that of a middle-of-the-rotation starter, which is still plenty useful in Fantasy. But obviously, it would require him to meet the full extent of his potential. So far, his minor-league career has been defined by peaks and valleys, most notably with his walk rate, but he appeared to make some progress in 2013. True, he encountered a "valley" after his midseason promotion to Triple-A Nashville, averaging 5.4 walks per nine innings in 15 starts, but he still finagled a 3.67 ERA in the heavy-hitting Pacific Coast League. By comparison, Tyler Thornburg had a 5.79 ERA in 15 starts there only to deliver a 2.03 ERA in 18 appearances, including seven starts, in the majors. Nelson made a nice impression with the big-league club as well, though in much fewer innings. Walks were an issue and may always be given his all-too-frequent mechanical glitches, but equipped with a mid-90s fastball with good sinking action, he gets enough groundouts and strikeouts to work around them. With the perfect frame for a heavy workload, Nelson could develop into an A.J. Burnett type for the Brewers. He'll be the first in line should the need arise midseason.
