Brewers | Jimmy Nelson dealing with hammy issue

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 12:35:44 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson (hamstring) was pushed back another day Friday, Feb. 27, because of a hamstring issue, however, manager Ron Roenicke maintains it isn't a serious injury.

Fantasy Tip: While the Brewers are likely just being cautious, it would be wise to monitor the situation over the next few weeks. Nelson has nothing left to prove at the minor league level, and he is should land a rotation spot to start the season. He looked overwhelmed in his first tour through the majors last season, so he should be viewed as a late-round flier in mixed leagues, albeit one with upside.

Brewers | Jimmy Nelson will start Saturday

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 18:56:38 -0700

The Milwaukee Brewers will call up SP Jimmy Nelson to start Saturday, July 12, and move SP Marco Estrada to the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson has a 1.46 ERA in Triple-A this season with 114 strikeouts in 111 innings. Although it remains to be seen if the move is permanent, Nelson is worth an immediate grab in NL-only leagues and worth keeping an eye on in other formats.
