Top Nick Nelson News

  • Phillies' Nick Nelson: Wins bullpen spot

    Nelson will break camp in the big-league bullpen, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Nelson, who was acquired from the Yankees in November, owns a 6.43 ERA in 35 career major-league innings, with his 16.1 percent walk rate standing out as a significant red flag. The Phillies will carry 10 relievers to start the season, but Nelson will have to pitch much better than he has in the past if he's to keep his job once rosters shrink back to 26 players in early May.

  • Phillies' Nick Nelson: Traded to Phillies

    Nelson and catcher Donny Sands were traded from the Yankees to the Phillies on Friday in exchange for left-hander Joel Valdez and first baseman T.J. Rumsfield.

    Nelson spent most of the 2021 season in the minors but made 11 appearances (two starts) with the Yankees. He posted a lackluster 8.79 ERA and 2.16 WHIP in 14.1 innings and will now attempt to carve out a role with his new club.

  • Yankees' Nick Nelson: Heads to minors

    The Yankees optioned Nelson to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday.

    Nelson appeared in one game after being recalled Aug. 9 and threw a one inning with two walks and an unearned run. With an 8.79 ERA and 2.16 WHIP through 14.1 innings this season, the righty doesn't figure to see another big-league opportunity unless an injuries or another illness outbreak creates numerous roster openings.

  • Yankees' Nick Nelson: Recalled by Yankees

    Nelson was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday.

    Nelson was optioned to Triple-A on Sunday following a one-day stint on the major-league roster, but he'll return to the Yankees' bullpen as part of a move after Gleyber Torres (thumb) landed on the 10-day injured list Monday. The right-hander has posted a 9.45 ERA and 2.17 WHIP in 13.1 innings across 10 appearances (two starts) in 2021.

  • Yankees' Nick Nelson: Called up Saturday

    Nelson was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday.

    Nelson spent just over two weeks in the minors but will rejoin the Yankees' bullpen after Aroldis Chapman (elbow) was placed on the injured list. The right-hander allowed six runs (five earned) on eight hits and five walks while striking out nine in 6.1 innings across four relief appearances during his recent time at Triple-A.

  • Yankees' Nick Nelson: Sent to Triple-A

    Nelson appeared in only one game since the All-Star break and allowed a hit and two walks over two-thirds of an inning while blowing a save. The right-hander will return to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, where he has a 2.73 ERA over 29.2 innings this season.

  • Yankees' Nick Nelson: Wild in turn as opener

    Nelson allowed one run on three walks while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning against Seattle on Wednesday. He did not factor in the decision.

    When Domingo German was scratched from his scheduled start due to an emergency root canal, Nelson was selected to open the game for the Yankees. His outing did not go well, as the right-hander threw only 18 of 32 pitches for strikes and put three men on base via walk. He also hit one batter and threw a wild pitch that allowed a run to cross the plate. The rough outing continued what has been a difficult season for Nelson, who has issued 12 walks over 12.2 frames while posting a 9.95 ERA and 2.05 WHIP. His 14.9 K/9 is impressive but doesn't make up for the shakiness of his other numbers.

  • Yankees' Nick Nelson: Starting Wednesday

    Nelson will start Wednesday's game against the Mariners.

    Original scheduled starter Domingo German underwent an emergency root canal Wednesday, and Nelson will take the mound in his place. Nelson last pitched for the Yankees in early June and has a 9.75 ERA, 1.92 WHIP and 20:9 K:BB over 12 big-league innings this season. He's mostly worked out of the bullpen in the majors, but he does have four starts in the minors.

  • Yankees' Nick Nelson: Back with Yankees

    Nelson was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.

    The right-hander has been in the minors for the past month but will return to the majors with Darren O'Day (hamstring) landing on the injured list. Nelson has struggled in eight big-league appearances this season with a 9.75 ERA, 1.92 WHIP and 20:9 K:BB across 12 innings.

  • Yankees' Nick Nelson: Optioned to Triple-A

    Nelson was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.

    Nelson was recalled by the Yankees on Sunday, and he made two relief appearances during his stint with the major-league club. He allowed four runs on three hits and four walks while striking out five in 3.2 innings. The right-hander could return to the big-league bullpen as a low-leverage relief option at some point this year.

  • Yankees' Nick Nelson: Rejoins big-league club

    Nelson was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.

    Nelson was returned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after the team's doubleheader Thursday.

  • Yankees' Nick Nelson: Serving as 27th man

    Nelson will be recalled by the Yankees to serve as the 27th man in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays, Jack Curry of YES Network reports.

    Nelson was cast off the major-league roster in late April after he posted a 9.72 ERA and 1.92 WHIP in 8.1 innings across six appearances (one start) early in the season. He'll be available out of the bullpen for Thursday's nightcap but will likely return to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following the game.

  • Yankees' Nick Nelson: Sent to alt site

    The Yankees optioned Nelson to their alternate training site Sunday.

    Nelson wasn't likely to be available for at least the next day or two after he tossed two innings (40 pitches) and gave up three runs in Sunday's 7-3 loss to Cleveland. He'll be replaced on the active roster by Deivi Garcia, who will be recalled from the alternate site ahead of his scheduled start Monday in Baltimore.

  • Yankees' Nick Nelson: Charged with loss Friday

    Nelson (0-2) allowed two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out two in one inning as he was charged with the loss against the Rays on Friday.

    Nelson made his first career start as the opener Friday, but the Rays got on the board with a walk and a pair of doubles to begin the game. The Yankees were unable to generate much run production offensively, resulting in Nelson's second loss in his first four appearances of the season. He's posted a 10.80 ERA and 10:3 K:BB in five innings this year.

  • Yankees' Nick Nelson: Opening Friday

    Nelson will open Friday's game against the Rays, Jim Bowden of The Athletic reports.

    The 25-year-old primarily worked as a starter in the minors and will now make his first career start in the majors. Nelson has covered four innings across three appearances out of the bullpen this season, so he'll likely be limited to a few frames Friday. Michael King is expected to follow as the primary pitcher for the Yankees.

  • Yankees' Nick Nelson: Suffers loss Thursday

    Nelson (0-1) was tagged with the loss Opening Day against Toronto, allowing one unearned run on one hit while striking out three.

    Nelson looked good in the appearance, throwing 11 of 15 pitches for strikes. However, he allowed a leadoff 10th-inning double to Randal Grichuk, permitting Jonathan Davis -- who was on second base due to MLB's extra-innings rule -- to come around to score. Despite the disappointing outcome, Nelson's ability to recover and subsequently strike out the side bodes well for his effectiveness this season following a strong spring.
