Indians' Kyle Nelson: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Monday.

Nelson hasn't looked good in 10 relief appearances this season, struggling to a 9.31 ERA and an 8:8 K:BB. He'll try to get back on track in the minors, with Logan Allen joining the big-league roster in a corresponding move.

Indians' Kyle Nelson: Inconsistent through 10 appearances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson has a 9.31 ERA and a 1.86 WHIP through his first 10 appearances this season.

While those are daunting numbers, the southpaw has actually kept runs off the board in eight of his outings. Nelson's ratios have been warped by the two times he's allowed five runs. A 7.4 BB/9 is still too high to be considered effective, but considering he's pitched to a 4.58 FIP, the reliever should be in line for a statistical correction over time. He allowed just one walk and struck out one over 1.1 innings in Sunday's 8-2 loss to Minnesota.

Indians' Kyle Nelson: Recalled by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Monday.

Nelson was sent down Saturday, but he'll return to the major-league roster after Shane Bieber (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday. Nelson has posted a 7.50 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in six innings across six relief appearances with the major-league club this year.

Indians' Kyle Nelson: Sent down Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Saturday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Cleveland needed to clear a spot for Saturday's starter Triston McKenzie. Nelson gave up five earned runs in one inning June 6 in Baltimore and has not entered a game since then.

Indians' Kyle Nelson: Disaster inning Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson allowed five runs on five hits and a walk in one inning of Sunday's 18-5 loss to Baltimore.

By the time the southpaw entered the contest in the seventh inning, Cleveland already trailed 12-3. Nelson did nothing to improve the situation, allowing Baltimore to tack on five more runs. The 24-year-old had strung together five scoreless innings across five appearances prior to Sunday's disaster. He has yet to record a decision or a hold, and it's expected he'll remain in low-leverage assignments.

Indians' Kyle Nelson: Recalled to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cleveland recalled Nelson from Triple-A Columbus to its major-league roster Saturday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

The reliever has pitched two scoreless innings with Cleveland this season and has allowed one earned run in 7.1 innings with Triple-A Columbus. Nelson fills the roster spot of Triston McKenzie, whom the team optioned Saturday.

Indians' Kyle Nelson: Optioned to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson was optioned to Cleveland's alternate training site Monday.

Nelson spent the last week in the major-league bullpen and allowed no hits and one walk while striking out two in two scoreless innings across two appearances. He'll now head back to the alternate training site as part of a move to make room for Franmil Reyes (personal) and Harold Ramirez on the active roster.

Indians' Kyle Nelson: Perfect inning in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson pitched a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout in Wednesday's 10-2 loss to the Twins.

Nelson made a solid first impression in his season debut. The 24-year-old southpaw isn't expected to see much high-leverage work while with the big club.

Indians' Kyle Nelson: Joins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cleveland recalled Nelson from its alternate training site ahead of Monday's game against the Twins, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Nelson will give the Cleveland bullpen an extra arm after Nick Wittgren (personal) was placed on the paternity list Monday in a corresponding move. Expect the 24-year-old lefty to work mostly in low-leverage scenarios while he's up with the big club.

Indians' Kyle Nelson: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Friday, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The 24-year-old was competing for a spot in the bullpen to start the season, and he had a strong spring training with one run allowed and an 8:0 K:BB over five innings. Nelson still figures to be in the mix this season as Cleveland shuffles its bullpen pieces.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson was optioned to the Indians' alternate training site Wednesday.

The 24-year-old had his contract selected by Cleveland last week and will return to the alternate training site. Nelson made his big-league debut Thursday against the Royals and surrendered four runs on four hits with one walk over two-thirds of an inning.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson's contract was selected by Cleveland on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old southpaw will be looking to make his big-league debut. He posted a 2.28 ERA in 47.1 innings of relief across the three highest levels of the minors last season, combining a 37.3 percent strikeout rate with a 7.6 percent walk rate. Adam Cimber was optioned in a corresponding move.
