Fantasy Roundup: I’m Still Buying Nelson

To begin the season I was skeptical about Jimmy Nelson as a breakout candidate, but after watching him mow down the Reds in his third start I was ready to believe — so much so I started last night in my DraftKings lineup. The biggest reason why I skeptical about Nelson entering the season was he didn’t have a pitch to get lefties out. However, that notion changed once I saw how...

DraftKings: Going Full Nelson On Your Opponents

Greetings one and all...oh who am I kidding. Greetings the one that is all. Thanks for reading! So, in full truthiness, I went and googled 'Full Nelson'. I always gotta check myself before I wreck myself. I had always heard the term with regards to wrestling. Well, not real wrestling. The kind where the big steroid guys shouted the loud, funny words before taking a chair up...

The Impact Of Jimmy Nelson’s New Curve

The lone bright spot for the Milwaukee Brewers so far this season has been the stellar performance of Jimmy Nelson, who boasts a 1.35 ERA and 0.70 WHIP through three starts. The 26-year-old right-hander has racked up 17 strikeouts while issuing just four walks in 20 innings of work this spring. Nelson’s encouraging early results have been one of the most compelling fantasy storylines...

Pirates lose game, but hopefully not Cutch

The Pirates lost a total stinker of a game – a relatively rare time when the boxscore really does tell the story: Jimmy Nelson, the Brewers’ 5th starter, absolutely dominated. Both of the Pirates’ hits were fortunately placed ground balls, and there weren’t any well hit outs. Throw in a couple double plays and a ton of strikeouts and you get a shutout. Vance Worley wasn’t...

How Will Jimmy Nelson Fare In 2015?

When the Milwaukee Brewers sent impending free agent and Opening Day starter for the previous 5 seasons in Yovani Gallardo to the Texas Rangers, the Brewers were left without an ace. Gallardo was not near ace level but was passable. Kyle Lohse took the reins to lead the Brewers rotation yesterday and proceeded to get rocked. Lohse went 3.1 innings and allowed 10 hits on 8 runs...

Milwaukee Brewers: Did they get a good deal for Yovani Gallardo?

The Milwaukee Brewers traded longtime ace Yovani Gallardo to the Texas Rangers Monday night for shortstop Luis Sardinas and pitchers Corey Knebel and Marcos Diplan. The Brewers will also pay $4 million of Gallardo’s $13 million contract. Sardinas, a shortstop and top five prospect within the Rangers organization, seems to be the centerpiece for the Brewers, as he brings a strong...

The Usefulness of Pitcher Jimmy Nelson

As Tommy John surgery spreads across baseball like the bubonic plague, perhaps it would be worthwhile to re-name the Cy Young award after the famed sports surgeon James Andrews. Fortunately, Milwaukee has avoided this mighty scourge of arm injuries. The Brewers managed to get to Memorial Day weekend with their rotation completely intact. Unfortunately, such luck came to an end Sunday...

Brewers top pitching prospect Nelson dominating in Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Jimmy Nelson doesn't mind the label of top pitching prospect for the Milwaukee Brewers, but he does get some grief about it from his Nashville Sounds teammates.
 "It's just stuff you try not to concentrate on," said Nelson, the Brewers' 2010 second-round draft pick. "Of course, you get worn out a little bit about it from the (teammates) in here, but it's...
