Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson staying positive despite struggles

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/31/15) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson allowed 10 earned runs in 4 1/3 innings in a Triple-A outing Monday and has posted a 6.23 ERA in four Cactus League starts, but he and pitching coach Rick Kranitz are focusing on the positives, MLB.com reports.

"This is a tough game, but everybody here is good at taking the positives out of things, and that's what you have to do in this game or it will break you down pretty good," Nelson said. "I've been trying to take the positives from every outing I've had and keep them in the back of my mind and remember how that felt, whether it's mechanically or mentally or anything like that. The pieces are there, I'm just putting them together."

Kranitz indicated that he saw improvement in Nelson's slider Monday.

"We saw some really good things," said Kranitz. "We needed to have him put guys away with the slider, and yesterday, there it was."

Nelson said his confidence remains high heading into Saturday's final spring start.

"I really have just been focused on attacking the strike zone," Nelson said. "Things we can control as pitchers are walks. Hits are going to happen. I've really been trying to cut down my walks first and foremost, and build off that. It's building blocks. First you have to get the strike zone. Then you have to command certain parts of the strike zone. Then you can start doing more advanced stuff."

Brewers' Nelson's spring struggles continue in minor-league start

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/30/15) Brewers starting pitcher Jimmy Nelson threw in a minor-league game Monday in order to stay on schedule, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Unfortunately, Nelson's spring struggles continued.

The right-hander allowed 10 runs on 11 hits and four walks, while striking out six in 4 1/3 innings. He threw 86 pitches.

Nelson is 0-1 with a 6.23 ERA in four Cactus League starts. He has allowed 17 runs (12 earned) on 17 hits and one walk in 13 innings.

Brewers' Roenicke continues to back Nelson despite rough spring

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/26/15) Brewers starting pitcher Jimmy Nelson has not had a banner spring. The right-hander has allowed 12 runs (nine earned) on 17 hits and one walk in 13 innings (6.23 ERA).

However, despite poor spring numbers, manager Ron Roenicke has not lost faith in Nelson.

“He was the most dominant pitcher in Triple-A,” Roenicke said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “That tells you if we can get back to that guy, then we have a really good major-league starter.

“(The struggles) are because he doesn’t command the ball. When he was in Triple-A, he commanded the ball better, for whatever reason. Maybe it was the confidence he had there. He’s got overpowering stuff but there’s not too many guys who can overpower a major-league hitter if you don’t put it in the right spot. The difference is he’s facing guys that are really good hitters.

“It’s not that he doesn’t throw strikes. When I talk about commanding the ball, that doesn’t mean it’s not a strike. It means when you want to throw it inside, you can throw it inside instead of being outside for a strike. Or if you want to throw it down and you miss up for a strike, that’s not commanding the ball. Commanding it is throwing it in an area you want to throw it, and repeating an offspeed pitch.”

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson throws two scoreless innings in loss

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/9/15) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson was one of the few bright spots for Milwaukee in an otherwise dismal spring training day. 

Nelson tossed two scoreless innings and only surrendered one hit in a 5-4 loss to the Royals. Nelson's outing came after recovering from a minor hamstring injury. 

"I felt pretty good out there," Nelson said, per MLB.com. "I was able to work on some things that were good to work on in game situations. I think I was just a tick up in the strike zone, but that's an easy adjustment."

Though Nelson excelled on the mound Monday, that wasn't the case for Brewers pitchers Neal Cotts and Mike Strong. Cotts gave up three hits and two earned runs in one inning pitched and Strong surrendered three hits and three earned runs in 1 1/3 innings pitched. 

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson working on mixing curveball into repertoire

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/6/15) Brewers starting pitcher Jimmy Nelson (hamstring) impressed manager Ron Roenicke as he threw batting practice Friday, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

“The last two times I’ve seen him throw, I really liked it. Just better command with his stuff,” Roenicke. "We’re trying to simplify things for him a little bit.

“First, we have to get him locked in with his fastball, get it over the plate, down, so he can attack hitters with it. He has come up with a curveball this year and I like it. It’s a nice curveball. With all of his pitches, I’m liking what I’m seeing.”

Nelson relied primarily on his fastball and sinker last season. He did throw a changeup, but he didn't throw it much. With the addition of a curveball, the Brewers are hoping it will aid his other pitches.

“He throws a changeup but he’s thinking this will help,” Roenicke said. “He’s still working on his changeup and he’ll see which one comes out better.

“He’ll throw all four (pitches). I don’t think he’ll get rid of one. But in different games you go sometimes with a different offspeed, depending on which is working better that day.”
