    • Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: IL-bound to open year
      By RotoWire Staff

      Manager Craig Counsell confirmed Nelson (shoulder) will open the season on the injured list, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. This was expected, as the Brewers are proceeding cautiously with Nelson after he missed the entire 2018 season recovering from shoulder surgery. The good news is that the right-hander should be able to pitch at Triple-A San Antonio to begin the season, rather than staying at extended spring training to get up to speed. He'll make a couple of starts with the Missions before being reevaluated.

    • Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Allows one unearned run
      By RotoWire Staff

      Nelson (shoulder) struck out four and gave up one unearned run on two hits across three innings during Saturday's spring game against the Rockies. Nelson made his spring debut with one inning Monday but looked significantly better during his second outing. The Brewers already announced the 29-year-old won't be present on the Opening Day roster after he missed the entire 2018 season, but extending to three innings is nonetheless a significant step towards his return. Nelson has no specified timeline for his return but should continue to ramp up his workload as spring training reaches it's closing stages.

    • Manager Craig Counsell announced Tuesday that Nelson (shoulder) will not be present on the Brewers' Opening Day roster, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Nelson tossed one inning during his spring debut Monday -- his first game action since undergoing shoulder surgery in September 2017 -- so this news isn't much of a surprise. The 29-year-old will continue to pitch on a regular five-day schedule, which could put him back on the mound in one of Milwaukee's split-squad games Saturday. There's been no indication of when Nelson might be ready to make his regular-season return, but the team is likely to remain cautious given the extensive layoff.

    • Nelson (shoulder) allowed two runs on four hits and struck out three in one inning Monday against the White Sox. Nelson certainly wasn't perfect in his first spring game of the year, but he did rack up three strikeouts, which is encouraging. His fastball sat around 91-92 mph, and he topped out at 94 mph, per Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. It remains unclear as to whether Nelson will be ready for Opening Day, although the Brewers will need to ensure that he can toss multiple frames in an exhibition game before allowing him to start a regular-season contest.

    • Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Set for spring debut
      By RotoWire Staff

      Nelson (shoulder) is set to make his Cactus League debut Monday against the White Sox, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Nelson had a successful two-inning appearance during an intrasquad game Thursday, clearing the way for his return to spring action. The 29-year-old missed the entirety of 2018 following shoulder surgery, so appearing in a Cactus League game is a big step toward his regular-season availability.
