Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Rehab appearance scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Wisconsin on Sunday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Nelson is having a rough season after missing all of 2018 for shoulder surgery. He owns an 8.36 ERA, a 2.29 WHIP and a 15:14 K:BB in 14 big-league innings. He's been out with a right elbow effusion since late June and will fill a relief role once he's cleared to return to Milwaukee.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson was placed on the 10-day injured list retroactive to June 26 with a right elbow effusion.

The Brewers did not provide any other details regarding Nelson's status, but according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, in layman's terms, fluid was discovered in Nelson's elbow. It's too early to tell when Nelson will be ready to pitch for the Brewers again, but he almost certainly will not do so prior to the All-Star break. Corbin Burnes was recalled to take Nelson's spot on the roster.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: First relief appearance this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson threw two scoreless innings out of the bullpen in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

Nelson kept the Mariners off the scoreboard, but he was not particularly sharp, throwing 47 pitches over his two frames and allowing six runners to reach base. He will continue pitching in relief for the time being while trying to work out the kinks following his extended absence due to the shoulder injury he suffered late in the 2017 campaign.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Moves to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson will pitch out of the bullpen moving forward, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Nelson just hasn't gotten the job done in his first three starts since missing over a year due to shoulder surgery, recording a 9.75 ERA, a 2.17 WHIP and a 15.9 percent walk rate. He'll get the chance to work through his struggles on the big-league roster in a low-leverage role. He could eventually return to the rotation if his numbers improve, but he's unlikely to have much fantasy value until that point. The Brewers have yet to announce who will take his spot in the rotation.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Rotation spot in jeopardy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson isn't guaranteed to keep his spot in the rotation going forward, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Nelson has made three starts for the Brewers this season after a long absence due to shoulder surgery. He's allowed 13 runs in 12 innings while walking 10 batters. The team would likely love to give him the chance to work through his struggles but can't afford many more poor starts while in the middle of a competitive playoff race.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Allows five runs in loss to Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (0-2) allowed five runs on seven hits and four walks across five innings while taking the loss Thursday against the Reds. He struck out five.

Nelson got off to a rough start in the first inning, when he allowed three runs on two hits, two walks, and a hit batsman. He settled down nicely until the fifth when he surrendered a two-out, two-run home run to Jose Iglesias. This makes it three consecutive disappointing starts to begin Nelson's season, resulting in an unsightly 9.75 ERA over 12 innings. He'll look to right the ship in his next start on the road against the Mariners.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Struggles in second outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson lasted just four innings Saturday against San Francisco, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks while striking out six batters.

The strikeouts are encouraging, but the rest of the line was poor for Nelson in his second appearance of the year. The outing was not without its encouraging moments, however. After allowing singles to the first two batters of the game, Nelson retired the next 11 batters. He gave up one run in the fourth inning, though, and then walked the bases loaded in the fifth and left before recording an out in that frame. All three walks would come in to score. Nelson now owns a 10.29 ERA and an 8:6 K:BB in seven innings of work. He lines up to pitch again Thursday against the Reds, assuming he's given the chance to work through his struggles.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Next start coming next Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson won't start again until June 15 in San Francisco, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

The Brewers have two off days next week, so they can afford to shift their rotation around, though a 10-day gap between starts is quite large. The team clearly wants to be very cautious with Nelson, who returned for his first major-league start in nearly 21 months Wednesday against the Marlins. His five runs allowed in three innings in that performance likely didn't make the Brewers too excited to see him return to the mound, but it looks like he'll be given some time to work his way back into his previous form.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Lasts three innings in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (0-1) allowed five runs (four earned) on four hits and three walks while striking out two across three innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Marlins.

Nelson made his long-awaited return to the Brewers' rotation, but he struggled with his command in the short start. He surrendered two free passes and a double to begin the third inning, which was followed by a grand slam off the bat of Brian Anderson that accounted for all of Nelson's earned runs. The slow start was understandable given that Nelson was making his first major-league start since September 8, 2017. Most important, he appears to have come out of the start healthy. He'll have the chance to continue building back up in his next outing, which is currently scheduled for Tuesday at Houston.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Recalled ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson was recalled from Triple-A San Antonio as expected ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday against the Marlins.

Nelson will make his first big-league start in nearly 21 months after finally recovering from shoulder surgery. He owns a 3.75 ERA and a 29:12 K:BB in 24 rehab innings with San Antonio. Trevor Williams was optioned in a corresponding move.

June 2, 2019 12:16 PM
Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Set for major-league return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson will be called up from Triple-A San Antonio to start Wednesday's game versus the Marlins, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Nelson lined up to pitch Tuesday with the Missions, so it makes sense for him to slot into the rotation Wednesday with Jhoulys Chacin (back) and Gio Gonzalez (arm) on the injured list. Nelson will make his long-awaited return to the majors after missing almost 21 months with the shoulder issue. The 29-year-old was activated off the IL on May 24 but was optioned to Triple-A and ended up making one more start with San Antonio. Nelson was in the midst of his best major-league season with a 3.49 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 199:48 K:BB through 29 starts before suffering the shoulder injury late in 2017.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Activated and sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (shoulder) was activated off the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A San Antonio.

Nelson made his fourth rehab start at Triple-A San Antonio on Thursday, and it looks as though he'll remain there for the time being. The 29-year-old exceeded 80 pitches in each of his last three rehab outings, so he should be fully stretched out despite the extensive layoff. The Brewers have yet to announce the official plan for Nelson going forward, but more information is likely to be provided in the near future.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Struggles in rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (shoulder) allowed four runs in five hits in 4.2 innings in a rehab start for Triple-A San Antonio on Thursday, striking out six batters while walking three.

Nelson cruised through four scoreless innings before allowing four runs in his fifth frame. Prior to the appearance, reports suggested Thursday's outing could be Nelson's final rehab start. It's unclear whether the one poor inning will change those plans.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Excellent in third rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (shoulder) threw 5.2 scoreless innings in his rehab start Friday for Triple-A San Antonio. He gave up three hits and one walk while striking out eight.

This was Nelson's best rehab start, as he threw 54 of his 86 pitches for strikes. He has a 3.77 ERA and 1.12 WHIP with 16 strikeouts through 14.1 innings in three rehab outings in the Pacific Coast League. Nelson will make one more rehab start at Triple-A, per Greg Luca of the San Antonio Express News. If that start goes well, he could join the big-league rotation before the end of May.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Tabbed for third rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (shoulder) will make his third minor-league rehab start Friday at Triple-A San Antonio, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Nelson completed his second rehab outing with the Missions on Saturday and allowed three runs on five hits and one walk across 5.1 innings. The 29-year-old had five strikeouts and threw 84 pitches as he continues to build up his arm strength, and he illustrated significantly better control than his first appearance. The Brewers will decide the next step in his rehab following Friday's outing, though a return to the majors appears to be on the horizon.

May 6, 2019 05:36 PM
Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Another rehab start on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Craig Counsell said Nelson (shoulder) is scheduled to start for Triple-A San Antonio on Saturday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Nelson allowed three runs on two hits and four walks across 3.1 innings in his first appearance for San Antonio, but most importantly the right-hander emerged from the outing healthy. He'll continue to get up to speed with the Missions before eventually being cleared to rejoin the big-league club.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Beginning rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (shoulder) will make a rehab start Sunday for Triple-A San Antonio, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Nelson was originally scheduled to begin his rehab assignment at San Antonio last weekend, but the premature birth of his twin daughters brought about a change of plan. The 29-year-old will likely require several rehab starts with the Missions given his extensive layoff from game action due to the shoulder injury.

April 28, 2019 03:12 PM
Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Rehab delayed by birth of twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (shoulder) won't make his scheduled rehab start for Triple-A San Antonio on Sunday as his wife gave birth to twins the night before, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Nelson's recovery timeline may be pushed back a bit, though he still likely has a way to go before returning to the majors. He may require several rehab starts as shoulder problems have prevented him from pitching in game action since 2017.

April 26, 2019 06:24 PM
Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Begins rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A San Antonio on Sunday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

This is big news for Nelson, who has finally been given the green light to move on from extended spring training. He'll likely need at least a couple starts with the Missions before the Brewers consider activating him from the injured list.

April 23, 2019 11:44 AM
Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Rehab assignment likely next
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (shoulder) is on the verge of beginning a rehab assignment, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports.

Nelson has worked at the Brewers' extended spring training complex since the regular season began, and he recently threw several simulated games, the most recent coming Monday, in which he threw around 70 pitches. The Brewers have not officially decided on Nelson's next step, but according to manager Craig Counsell, "As long as we get through the next couple of days with recovery, then yes, the next step (for Nelson) is an affiliate." If Nelson is sent out as expected and begins his rehab assignment this weekend or early next week, he would be on track to join the Brewers -- and make his first big-league appearance since September of 2017 -- before May comes to a close.
