JIMMY NELSON NEWS

Brewers 6, Cubs 1 (5/2/15)

OSS: Cubs strike out 18 times on the way to a loss Three up: 1. Aside from a Braun HR in the first (and another near-HR his next time up), I thought Arrieta looked pretty good in this game. Just all the bad luck you can think of in the second, with a bunch of bloops and meh contact finding holes for hits. In his not-defense though, the Brewers were running wild on him as he had no...

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...

3 Waiver Wire Pickups, Week 3

Two weeks ago I started off our Waiver Wire articles in the opening week of the season. I advised caution and patience with the guys you drafted. You drafted them for a reason, and two to three days of o-fers doesn’t change that. But, I did recommend three guys that should be picked up if you were facing injuries, or if you drafted injured players to stash on the DL.  Those three were...

Brewers at Pirates preview

The Pittsburgh Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers scored the most runs in the NL Central last season, but they're struggling ahead of this weekend's series at PNC Park. The opener could be a low-scoring affair Friday night given how starters Jimmy Nelson and Jeff Locke fared last weekend. After averaging 4.2 and 4.0 runs in 2014, Pittsburgh ranks 24th in the majors with 3.2 while Milwaukee...

Daily SP Rankings: Friday, Apr 17

With the MLB week now over half done, our attention (in H2H leagues) turns to those last-minute pitcher adds to seal up the counting stats or preserve the ratios. Remember, if you’re in a league where you have spare weekly transactions or no transaction limit at all, you can make defensive adds by claiming the day’s best starters even if you have no intention of using them.

It’s April and the Pirates can’t hit again

Welp, stop me if you’ve heard that one before. I am still very confident that this is a good offense. A couple of awful games doesn’t change that. They are in a slump. A quick look at some of the averages for guys with legit track records will tell you right away that this won’t last long: Not great. pic.twitter.com/PCF6YLwgm0 — Brian McElhinny (@rtjr) April 16, 2015 Regardless...

Jimmy Nelson Found a New Pitch

The list of guys with new pitches every spring runs deep (27 last year on Jason Collette’s excellent list). The list of those that continue to throw those pitches during the regular season is a little bit shorter (23 last year). And the group that see real success from adding that extra pitch is even […]

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...

At the expense of the Milwaukee Brewers, the Pittsburgh Pirates have finally found their way into the win column.

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.
