Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson strikes out eight in no-decision
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/29/15) Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson pitched decently on Friday against the Diamondbacks. The young right-hander tossed six innings, allowing four runs on seven hits. He struck out eight and did not allow a walk, throwing 71 of his 103 pitches for strikes as he was left with a no-decision.
Nelson (2-5) gave up solo home runs to Ender Inciarte and David Peralta in the third inning, as his ERA rose to 3.90 with Friday's performance.
He'll look for better results in his next start, scheduled for Wednesday in St. Louis.
Brewers' Jimmy Nelson walks five in loss vs. Braves
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/24/15) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson took a loss on Sunday, allowing two earned runs on five hits and five walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 2-1 defeat against the Braves.
Despite his wildness, Nelson (2-5) was able to string together five scoreless innings before the Braves took a 2-0 lead in the sixth. It's the second time this season he's walked five batters in a game and his second straight start with at least four walks.
Nelson owns a 3.67 ERA and 47:23 K:BB ratio in 56 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Diamondbacks at home on Saturday.
Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson goes eight innings in win on Tuesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson allowed one run on three hits in eight innings of work in Milwaukee's 8-1 win over the Tigers on Tuesday.
Nelson's lone run allowed came in the first inning when after Ian Kinsler walked, he advanced all the way to third after a stolen base and a throwing error. Kinsler then scored on a J.D. Martinez RBI single. Walker settled down after that, striking out five in his eight innings.
Nelson, now 2-4, lowered his ERA to 3.73 in 50 2/3 innings of work. He will look to keep things rolling Sunday against the Braves.

Brewers P Jimmy Nelson surrenders three home runs Friday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/8/15) The long ball was not kind to Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson during Friday's 7-6 loss to the Cubs.
Nelson allowed three home runs and five hits, which resulted in four runs over seven innings of work. Nelson surrendered solo home runs to Dexter Fowler in the first inning as well as to Anthony Rizzo and Jorge Soler in the fourth inning.
Nelson's main highlight during the outing were his 11 strikeouts with only one walk. He received his third loss of the season for his effort. Nelson (1-3) has not received a win since his first start of season.
His next expected start is scheduled for Wednesday against the White Sox.
|2014 summary: Jimmy Nelson did in 2014 what many of the highest-profile pitching prospects have failed to do over the years: He dominated the heavy-hitting Pacific Coast League, thriving with a rare combination of strikeouts and groundouts. He wasn't as effective in a 12-start trial in the majors, but at 6-feet-6, 245 pounds, he profiles as a workhorse for the Brewers eventually.|
Playing time status: The emergence of Mike Fiers late last year looked like it would make Nelson a spare part this year, but the Brewers cleared the logjam by trading Yovani Gallardo to the Rangers in January and announcing Nelson would be in their starting rotation the same day. Clearly, they believe in him.
2015 outlook: Though Nelson is a legitimate prospect, his performance at Triple-A Nashville last year caught many by surprise, making his upside a subject of speculation. Even with a rotation spot to call his own, he won't for sure be drafted in mixed leagues, but he'll be a popular waiver wire addition if he gets off to a hot start.
