Brewers' Jimmy Nelson tosses eight one-run innings vs. Reds

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/22/15) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson didn't factor into the decision Wednesday after giving up just one earned run on three hits and two walks in eight innings while striking out five in his team's 2-1 loss to the Reds.

Nelson surrendered back-to-back singles to open the game, bringing Billy Hamilton, who had stolen second base after his leadoff single, home for an early Reds lead. Nelson buckled down from there, first getting a double play to empty the bases then allowing just one hit over the remainder of the game. However, he was unable to outbattle Reds starter Johnny Cueto, resulting in the no-decision.

Nelson's excellent outing gives him a 1.35 ERA and 17:4 K:BB ratio in 20 innings over three starts. His next test will come Monday in a rematch with the Reds.

Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson throws five innings in loss Friday

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/17/15) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson threw five innings and gave up two earned runs during Friday's 6-3 loss to the Pirates.

"I felt like I was able to get more ground balls this outing than last outing, although overall I wasn't quite as sharp," Nelson said, per MLB.com "But you're not going to be sharp every time out."

Nelson surrendered five hits, but he did not walk a batter and he struck out three. The two runs were the first runs he's given up this year. His ERA raised to 1.50 and he is now 1-1 on the season. 

"I know this team has good character. I know we're going to respond to this and learn from it," Nelson said. 

His next expected start will be Wednesday against the Reds.

Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson earns first win of the season

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/11/15) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson worked an efficient seven scoreless innings Saturday, recording nine strikeouts and allowing just two hits in Milwaukee's 6-0 win over the Pirates Saturday. 

Nelson, who also tallied two walks, did not allow a baserunner past second base in the game. It was his first win of the year and kept his ERA a perfect 0.00.

"I didn't question anything at all, I just stuck to the process," Nelson said to MLB.com. "I was still getting a lot of ground balls and stuff. After leaving my hand, I can't do anything about it. I was pretty happy with the work I've put in. Hopefully it'll stay right there. I'm just happy we got this one for the team, really."

He will look to keep rolling Friday when he faces the Pirates again.

Brewers name pitcher Jimmy Nelson fifth starter

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/4/15) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson will start the team's fifth game of the season against the Pirates and will not be skipped in the rotation because of the first off day, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Nelson struggled this spring, posting a 6.23 ERA with 16 strikeouts and four walks in five starts.

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."
