Milwaukee Brewers Top 10 Prospects

The Milwaukee Brewers have the worst farm system in baseball. This is due, in part, to high-profile prospects like Wily Peralta, Scooter Gennett, and Tyler Thornburg getting promoted to the majors last season. None of the players on this list profile as All-Stars or even above-average Major League players. This list is primarily comprised of raw players with athletic upside and pitchers...

Jimmy Nelson odd man out of Brewers' rotation

MILWAUKEE -- If the Milwaukee Brewers could realistically make a seven-man rotation work, Jimmy Nelson would be the seventh pitcher starting games. But seven-man rotations don't ever work, meaning Milwaukee's pitching prospect will have to leave his mark as a reliever. Nearly two weeks since being called up, Nelson has appeared in just two games. There's a chance the...

Jimmy Nelson’s Rising Stock

Does Jimmy Nelson have the best pure stuff in the Brewers organization? The answer is yes, or at least that’s what a source who has closely followed the right-handed pitcher’s career told me.
