Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: On track for spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson told MLB Network Radio on Wednesday that he expects to enter spring training 100 percent healthy. "That's the goal. I'm on track right now to throw my bullpens like normal leading into spring training."

Nelson spent the entire 2018 campaign recovering from a shoulder injury. Barring any setbacks, it sounds like the right-hander will be fully operational for the start of spring training, putting him in line to open the season in Milwaukee's starting rotation. The 29-year-old is a bit of a wild card for fantasy owners, but he could prove valuable if he's able to return to his pre-injury form (3.49 ERA, 10.2 K/9. 2.5 BB/9 across 175.1 innings in 2017).

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Inks 2019 contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson agreed to a one-year, $3.7 million deal with Milwaukee on Wednesday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

This deal allowed both parties to avoid the arbitration process. Nelson failed to pitch this past season after suffering a shoulder injury in September of 2017. According to general manager David Stearns, Nelson is expected to have a "relatively normal" offseason before the Brewers re-evaluate his condition when spring training rolls around. If the 29-year-old is deemed ready to go, he will provide a major boost for the Brewers in 2019.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Preparing for 'relatively normal' offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (shoulder) should have a "relatively normal" offseason after completing his rehab, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. "His formal rehab is complete. He has returned to pitching," general manager David Stearns said. "That is a great thing to say."

Nelson has been sidelined since September of 2017 with a shoulder injury, but the right-hander is now back with the Brewers and resting after wrapping up his rehab in Arizona. While this is an encouraging step for Nelson, who is hoping to be ready for spring training, he's not in the clear yet. "Now it's, let's go into a normal offseason, get his rest, and then do an intelligent ramp-up to spring training and see where we are then," Stearns added. "There are still a lot of unknowns here. We have been very explicit about that throughout this. But his return to pitching, we're all happy with it."

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Targeting instructional league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (shoulder) is expected to pitch in an instructional league game before being shut down for the year, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

It's now been exactly a year since Nelson injured his shoulder, and it looks all but certain that he'll miss the entire 2018 season. The plan is for him to pitch in some simulated games in Arizona and then throw in the instructional league before finishing his season. He'll have the goal of making the Brewers' Opening Day rotation next season, though with an absence of this length, even that can't be fully guaranteed.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Tosses bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Saturday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Prior to Saturday, Nelson had managed to play catch off a mound, but he hadn't advanced to pitching. Although a return this year seems out of the question, it's good to see that he's continuing to make progress. If Nelson doesn't return from the disabled list before the season ends, expect him to throw in the instruction league or Arizona Fall League over the offseason to ensure he's ready for the 2019 campaign.
