Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Suffers loss No. 15
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nelson (8-15) gave up four runs on six hits over five innings in Wednesday's loss to the Pirates. He struck out five and walked two.

He had a rough start to the game, giving up an Andrew McCutchen solo homer and then a rally capped by a two-run single, but did at least manage to settle down and allow only one run (another solo homer) over the next four frames. It's hard for Nelson owners to find positives in this season -- in nearly the same number of innings as last year, he's walked more hitters, struck out fewer, and allowed more hits and homers. Once upon a time, he was one of the game's most highly regarded pitching prospects, but at 27, Nelson still hasn't put it all together.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Whiffs seven in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (8-14) won after allowing three runs on eight hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in six innings Thursday in a 5-4 win over the Cubs.

Nelson gutted out a win over Chicago, using his seven strikeouts to limit the damage to just three runs. The 27-year-old has just two quality starts over his past 11 outings, going 2-7 with a 6.55 ERA and 1.82 WHIP. He's endured a fair amount of bad luck during that stretch, however, with a .344 BABIP over his previous 10 starts entering Thursday. He'll take the mound against the Pirates next Thursday at Miller Park in search of another victory.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Poor inning soils Friday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson allowed four runs on five hits and a pair of walks across six innings in Friday's loss to the Cardinals. He struck out four.

Nelson was undone by his third inning, as he allowed a pair of two-run home runs in the frame to account for all of the damage against him. He had moved past the fifth inning just once in the previous nine starts, so Friday's outing was positive in that regard, but he has still thrown just one quality start in the last 10 tries. He will next take the hill Thursday versus the Cubs.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Allows one run despite six walks versus Pirates on Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nelson allowed one run on four hits, struck out four and walked six over 5.1 innings in a no-decision against the Pirates on Saturday.

He yielded a run in the first, then shut the door the rest of the way. Nelson left with a one-run lead, but the Brewers' bullpen allowed the Pirates to tie the game in the seventh. With six free passes, Nelson was fortunate to get out of this outing with only one run allowed. Pittsburgh stranded eight baserunners and grounded into two double plays in the first six frames alone. His next start will be Friday versus the Cardinals.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Hit hard in Saturday no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nelson didn't factor into the decision Saturday versus the Pirates, giving up six runs (five earned) on seven hits and three walks over 3.2 innings. He also recorded a strikeout.

The right-hander didn't have it Saturday, getting into early trouble by allowing an RBI double to Starling Marte in the first. Nelson went on to fall apart in what was a five-run fourth for the Pirates, leading to his ouster after a whopping 84 pitches in less than four frames. Nelson has endured a nightmarish August, posting a 1-4 record and 8.51 ERA over the 24.1 innings encompassing his six starts. He'll look to bounce back in a rematch with Jameson Taillon and the Pirates next Friday.
