Jimmy Nelson falls apart in middle innings in loss to Toronto
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/20/14) A strong run of five straight quality starts ended with a thud Wednesday against the Blue Jays for Brewers rookie Jimmy Nelson.

Nelson collapsed after four strong innings to take his fourth loss in six decisions. He gave up four runs on five hits in the fifth and sixth before his removal. Among them were run-scoring doubles by Munenori Kawasaki and Melky Cabrera.

His next start is set for Monday at San Diego.

Jimmy Nelson settles for no-decision
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/16/14) Jimmy Nelson tossed a strong start Friday against the Dodgers.

Nelson allowed two runs on six hits over six innings. He struck out four and walked one during the outing. Yasiel Puig proved to be a thorn in his side throughout the night. He singled in a run in the first inning, giving the Dodgers the lead. Puig would do the same thing in the fifth inning, driving in another run.

The Brewers mounted a comeback in the eighth inning to take the lead, giving Nelson a no-decision. He fell to 2-4. Nelson will take on the Pirates in his next start.

Jimmy Nelson falls short in pitcher's duel with Dodgers ace
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/10/14) Brewers starting pitcher Jimmy Nelson was effective over six innings Sunday against the Dodgers. However, the rookie pitcher came into Sunday's start as a major underdog since he was facing off against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, who proved to be just that much better than Nelson in a 5-1 win for Los Angeles.

Nelson (2-3) was out in front of Kershaw for a few innings with a 1-0 lead before Adrian Gonzalez tied the game at 1 with a sac fly in the third inning. The Dodgers then took the lead for good on Matt Kemp's one-out RBI single in the fifth inning.

The rookie hurler allowed two runs on eight hits and one walk, while striking out three in six innings. Kershaw allowed just one run over eight innings.

Nelson's luck doesn't appear to be changing for the better heading into his next start since he will face off against Kershaw in a rematch Friday.

Jimmy Nelson beginning to distinguish himself
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/6/14) At one time or another this season, Kevin Gausman, Rubby De La Rosa and Drew Smyly have all been hyped to the hills -- if not by some other Fantasy analyst, then by yours truly. Their potential is just so enticing, especially when you consider they belong to a select group of starting pitchers who qualify at relief pitcher (or SPARPs, as they're more commonly known). It's a much bigger deal in Head-to-Head leagues than Rotisserie.

But following his third straight quality start Tuesday, I'm ready to say another SPARP, Jimmy Nelson, has left them all in the dust. With the exception of one ugly start against the Cardinals in his long awaited return from the minors July 12, when he allowed six earned runs in 4 1/3 innings, everything he accomplished at Triple-A Nashville prior to his promotion -- the improved control, the exceptionally high ground ball rate, the ability to pick up a strikeout when he needs it -- has translated. And with much better consistency than you'd expect for a rookie.

Naturally, it's a small sample, but a pitcher who put together a 1.46 ERA in the heavy-hitting Pacific Coast League deserves the benefit of the doubt. I'm not ready to move Nelson past Jacob deGrom yet, who has been as effective for longer, but ranking him 62nd at starting pitcher and 22nd at relief pitcher (in Head-to-Head leagues, that is) is my way of saying he should be owned in all leagues.

Jimmy Nelson tosses quality start in win vs. Giants
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/5/14) Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson picked up a win Tuesday, surrendering three earned runs on six hits and one walk in seven innings and striking out three in his team's 4-3 victory over the Giants.

Nelson (2-2) served up a three-run home run in the sixth inning but otherwise pitched very well in the win, his first since rejoining the rotation despite putting together three straight quality starts. Nelson owns a 4.20 ERA and 27:9 K:BB ratio in 30 innings. He's scheduled to face the Dodgers Sunday.
