Marlins' James Nelson: Out with minor knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson has a minor knee injury and is expected to be ready for game action by the end of April, MLB.com's Mike Rosenbaum reports.

Nelson was held back in extended spring training due to the injury, and while Rosenbaum did not specify which level he will head to, High-A seems most likely, as the 20-year-old third baseman played 102 games at Low-A last year. He has a lightning quick bat and at 6-foot-2, 180 pounds, he should eventually grow into 20-plus homer pop.

Marlins' James Nelson: Surging at Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson, 19, is hitting .361 with nine RBI over his last 10 games for Low-A Greensboro.

A 15th-round pick last season, Nelson is raking during his first taste of full-season ball. He is batting .311/.356/.458 through 91 games. Nelson does not have big power or speed, and he could stand to be a bit more patient at the dish. Still, it is difficult to argue with his average, and he could move quickly up the ranks for the Marlins due to their lack of depth in their farm system.

Marlins' James Nelson: Extends hitting streak to 15 games at Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run and two RBI for Low-A Greensboro in Monday's loss to Lakewood.

He started the season on the shelf recovering from a quad injury, but since Nelson has returned to action, he's done nothing but rake. The 19-year-old is currently riding a 15-game hitting streak during which he has a .356/.409/.492 slash line, although his 5:21 BB:K in those 15 games indicates how much work he has yet to do at the plate. The Marlins' No. 5 prospect was seen as a raw athlete with speed and the tools to be a solid defender at the hot corner coming into the season, but so far in 2017 he's showing some impressive growth as a hitter.
