JIMMY NELSON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Bullpen perhaps in flux, but Brewers turn to Nelson to start

MILWAUKEE (AP) With a month until spring training, the Brewers are minus a workhorse starting pitcher and their All-Star closer. Milwaukee seems committed to staying in-house and turning to young right-hander Jimmy Nelson to fill the spot in rotation that opened following the trade of Yovani Gallardo to the Texas Rangers. The bullpen, though, could still be a work in progress. Francisco...

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.

Developing changeup could be difference between rotation and bullpen for Nelson

There was nothing left for Jimmy Nelson to prove in Triple-A when he received the call to the big leagues from the Milwaukee Brewers last July. Nelson had dominated the Pacific Coast League to the tune of a 10-2 record and a 1.46 ERA, which ended up earning him the league's pitcher of the year honors despite spending the final four months of the season in the big leagues. But the...

Brewers' Nelson falls short against Mets' deGrom in rookie pitchers' duel

MILWAUKEE -- Before the game, Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke spoke to how impressed he was with New York Mets rookie starter Jacob deGrom. Little did he know just how good the right-hander was about to be against his team. In a battle of two of the better young pitchers in the National League, deGrom held the Brewers scoreless over 6 1/3 innings Sunday, leading the Mets to...

Milwaukee Brewers facing tragedy off the field

It’s been a terrible last ten games for the Milwaukee Brewers.  Nine of them have been losses, and last night’s defeat stung extra strongly. The Brewers blew a 6-0 lead to lose 7-6 after a go-ahead home run by Matt Holliday. Their NL Central lead has shrunk to one game, and they could lose it before the All Star Break if the Cardinals keep beating them. Jimmy Nelson, who has...

Brewers Tuesday: Nelson's call to big leagues could come soon

MILWAUKEE -- Top pitching prospect Jimmy Nelson has made a season-long case to be called up from Triple-A, but the right-hander's current 22-inning scoreless streak has offered further proof he's ready to come to the big leagues. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Tuesday there have been "a lot of discussions" about bringing Nelson up to the big leagues. Nelson worked seven scoreless...

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...
