JIMMY NELSON RUMORS & GOSSIP

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...

Pitcher Profile: Jimmy Nelson And The Brewers’ Dire Need For The All-Star Break

Oh man, did the Crew need that win yesterday!  Even up 11-1, I thought K Rod might blow the lead.  The way things have gone... But it's not all about me and the Brewers!  At least, that's what the girlfriend keeps telling me... Yesterday, Wily Peralta showed some exceptional stuff in easily the biggest game of 2014 for Milwaukee, but the day before, high-profile prospect Jimmy...

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 Friday: Milwaukee makes room for Nelson in rotation

MILWAUKEE -- After discussing the switch over the last couple of weeks, the Milwaukee Brewers officially moved Marco Estrada out of the starting rotation Thursday night to make way for top pitching prospect Jimmy Nelson. What made the timing right for Nelson to come up now? The right-hander was simply pitching too well to stay in Triple-A. "I think it had both to do with him pitching...

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...

Early offense helps Nelson ease nerves, earn first win

What Jimmy Nelson showed the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday is he's capable of navigating through a big-league lineup without having his best stuff. Making a spot start in place of Yovani Gallardo, Nelson was spotted an early 6-0 lead and fought his way through 5 2/3 scoreless innings to earn his first major-league win in Milwaukee's 7-1 victory of the Miami Marlins. As expected, the...

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...
