Why Is Nelson Struggling?

Coming into this season, there was significant optimism surrounding Jimmy Nelson. He was heading into his age-27 season, and the Brewers were hoping he would take a step forward and establish his place in the rotation for years to come. PECOTA saw good things for him, with his 50th-percentile projection being 2.6 WARP and a 4.14 DRA. But that is not at all what has happened. Nelson...

Jimmy Nelson Has Been Unlucky, and Bad

In 2015, it seemed as though the Brewers had no consistently competent starting pitchers. Matt Garza melted down, Kyle Lohse ran out of gas, Wily Peralta regressed hideously, and Mike Fiers left at the trade deadline. Taylor Jungmann performed pretty well, but he didn’t debut until June, and he wore down into the later part of the year. Only Jimmy Nelson reliably put up solid...

Brewers’ Jimmy Nelson hit in head with line drive

This is a scary sight. During Thursday night’s Cardinals-Brewers game at Miller Park, Milwaukee starter Jimmy Nelson got hit in the head with a line drive off the bat of Tommy Pham. Incredibly, Nelson was able to walk off the field under his power a short time later. It looks like he got his arm up in time to deflect the majority of the blow. Hopefully, Nelson has no long-lasting...

Q&A with Jimmy Nelson, the Brewers emerging ace

by David Laurila Jimmy Nelson has emerged as Milwaukee’s best starter thanks to a pair of tweaks. The 26-year-old righty has unleashed a spike curveball and tightened up his delivery. The results are striking. Nelson leads Brewers hurlers in punch outs, wins, and innings, and his 3.61 ERA is as solid as his 6-foot-6, 245-pound frame. Nelson discussed his adjustments, as well...
