      Brewers pitcher Tyler Cravy to replace Jimmy Nelson in rotation

      Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson (head) has been placed on the 60-day DL Tuesday. Considering the Brewers already ruled him out for the remainder of the season, this move should come as no surprise. Tyler Cravy is set to take the mound in place of Nelson, and he could finish out the rest of the season in the starting rotation if he pitches well Tuesday.

      Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson shut down for the rest of 2015

      Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson (head) will be shut down for the remainder of the season. Nelson was struck in the head by a line drive Thursday which forced the Brewers to skip over his start Tuesday for precautionary reasons. Even though he seems to be fine, the Brewers took it one step further Monday by shutting him down for the rest of 2015 while Tyler Cravy takes over Tuesday, and potentially for every other projected one of Nelson's starts through the end of the season.

      Brewers' Jimmy Nelson ruled out for next start as precaution

      Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson (head) will not make his next start Tuesday against the Cubs, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Even though Nelson escaped with just a bruise after getting hit by a line drive Thursday against the Cardinals, manager Craig Counsell decided to skip his start due to precautionary reasons saying, "It's great to have him back out here. He's doing great. He's chomping at the bit, obviously. He'll be a spectator until Monday. After he sees the doctor on Monday, we'll have a better idea of what's going to happen the rest of the year." The Brewers have yet to announce a starter to replace Nelson, although more details should arise as it gets closer to Tuesday.

      Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson released from hospital

      Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson (head) was released from the hospital Saturday and is scheduled for a checkup with a neurologist Monday. Nelson was fortunate to escape with only a bruise on his head after taking a line drive to the dome during his start Thursday against the Cardinals. The Brewers sent Nelson as the hospital as a precaution, but he's been diagnosed with nothing more than a bruise as of yet. The visit with the neurologist will likely allow the Brewers to determine if Nelson is experiencing any late-arriving concussion symptoms. He has yet to be ruled out for his next start, scheduled for Tuesday against the Cubs.

      Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson falls apart in loss to Pirates

Nelson suffered through his third poor outing in the last four by allowing four runs on four hits in five innings with three walks and two strikeouts. He blew a 2-0 lead in the process. All was well through three - he even retired seven batters in a row at one point. But he struggled the second time through the lineup, giving up two walks and three singles in the fourth, including a two-run job by Chris Stewart. Nelson is now 11-12 with an ERA of 3.95, its highest point since July 24.
