JIMMY NELSON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mike Fiers Should Stay In The Brewers’ Rotation

With Matt Garza slated to return to the Milwaukee Brewers’ starting rotation in the not too distant future, manager Ron Roenicke will have to decide whether to keep Mike Fiers or Jimmy Nelson as a starter for the stretch run in September. While decisions like these can leave a manager tossing and turning at night, the choice Roenicke must make upon Garza’s return is quite clear...

Nelson, Brewers fail to 'get it done' in setback to Blue Jays

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers were one out away from escaping the fifth inning with the lead, one out away from keeping the game tied in the sixth and one out away from entering their last at-bat trailing by just two runs.

Swapping Jimmy Nelson into Marco Estrada's rotation spot was oft discussed and long rumored, as the chatter increased as the season wore on. Be it because the Brewers needed...

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...

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...

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...
