Yankees' Nick Nelson: Could join rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson was mentioned by Yankees manager Aaron Boone on Saturday as a candidate to take James Paxton's (forearm) spot in the rotation, Bryan Hoch of reports.

The Yankees don't need to come to a decision on Paxton's replacement immediately with their weekend series against the Mets cancelled due to coronavirus concerns, but the southpaw is expected to be shelved for at least two weeks, so the team will eventually need to fill his spot. Nelson has come out of the bullpen for each of his three big-league appearances; however, he was developed as a starter in the minor leagues. The 24-year-old has spent much of the season at the team's alternate training site but impressed with a three-inning scoreless outing upon his return to the big-league club Tuesday.

Yankees' Nick Nelson: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson was recalled by the Yankees on Tuesday.

Nelson made the first two appearances of his big-league career earlier in the year, allowing six earned runs in 4.2 innings of work. He'll presumably fill a low-leverage relief role during his time with the team.

Yankees' Nick Nelson: Sent down after rough outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Yankees optioned Nelson to their alternate training site Thursday.

With the Yankees having to reduce their active roster from 30 to 28 men ahead of Thursday's series finale with the Phillies, Nelson found himself as the odd man out in manager Aaron Boone's nine-man bullpen. Nelson's demotion was likely solidified after he was hit hard in long relief Wednesday in the Yankees' 11-7 loss in the first game of a doubleheader. He recorded five outs and surrendered seven runs (six earned) on seven hits and a walk.

Yankees' Nick Nelson: Impressive in big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (1-0) pitched three scoreless and hitless innings to earn the win against Boston on Saturday, issuing two walks while striking out four.

Nelson was summoned to start the fifth inning and exited after the seventh without allowing a hit. His control was shaky -- only 23 of his 41 pitches were strikes, and he yielded two free passes -- but he avoided any damage by inducing eight swinging strikes and holding the Red Sox without a hit. The right-hander struck out 114 batters in 89.2 innings in the minors last season, so he could have a bright future, especially if he is able to reduce his walk rate.

Yankees' Nick Nelson: Joins 30-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson is expected to be added to the Yankees' 30-man roster Sunday.

Nelson was unable to secure a place on the Opening Day roster at summer camp, but he'll join the big club for the third game of the season. The 24-year-old posted a 4.71 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 24:7 K:BB over 21 innings (four starts) at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last season.

Yankees' Nick Nelson: Optioned to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson was reassigned to the Yankees' alternate training site Tuesday.

Nelson had been sent down to Triple-A prior to the suspension of spring training, so it's no surprise that he won't break camp with the big-league club. The right-hander is on the Yankees' 40-man roster and has a history of posting excellent strikeout numbers, so he could conceivably make his major-league debut at some point this season.

Yankees' Nick Nelson: Gets spot in 60-man player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson will attend summer camp as part of the Yankees' 60-man roster.

Nelson was optioned to the minors in early March, but he'll have a chance to put his arsenal on display in summer camp and could make his big-league debut at some point in 2020. The 24-year-old racked up 114 strikeouts in 89.2 innings across three minor-league levels last season.

Yankees' Nick Nelson: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, Randy Miller of NJ Advance Media reports.

The flamethrowing right-hander struggled with his control this spring, allowing four walks in five innings, though he did hold opponents scoreless in his three appearances. He'll begin the season in the minors, but Nelson has a chance to contribute to the big-league club this season if he can find a way to cut down his walk rate.
