The Milwaukee Brewers have scratched SP Jimmy Nelson (finger) from his scheduled start Saturday, Aug. 2, against the St. Louis Cardinals due to a blister. Nelson will be replaced by SP Kyle Lohse.
Fantasy Tip: Nelson's next start is scheduled for Tuesday, but fantasy owners in NL-only leagues and daily formats might want to wait to see how he responds in one full start before plugging him back into the active fantasy lineup.

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.

Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson could be called up to make the start against the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday, July 12.
Fantasy Tip: Nelson is one of the club's top pitching prospects. Unfortunately, his start would likely only be a spot start right before the All-Star break. Keep him on your radar in AL-only and deep mixed leagues, though, if he comes up in the second half.

Milwaukee Brewers SP Marco Estrada did not receive a vote of confidence from manager Ron Roenicke Tuesday, July 8, when Roenicke was asked about Estrada's rotation spot. Roenicke said, "We'll see."
Fantasy Tip: Estrada's struggles with the long ball are well documented, at this point. Jimmy Nelson's Triple-A numbers are impressive and he has reached that "nothing left to prove" stage in the minors.

Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson's promotion from Triple-A Nashville has been discussed, according to manager Ron Roenicke. Roenicke did not elaborate on specific details.
Fantasy Tip: Marco Estrada leads the major leagues -- and by a large margin -- in home runs allowed and Nelson has been dominant in the minors. He has immediate NL-only value, if recalled, and could be a factor in mixed leagues. If Nelson has eligibility as a relief pitcher in your league, it can be particularly valuable in some formats. He is a potential stash candidate, or at the very least, monitor his situation for a potential promotion.

The Milwaukee Brewers purchased the contract of SP Jimmy Nelson from Triple-A Nashville. INF Jeff Bianchi was optioned to Nashville.
Fantasy Tip: Nelson is starting in place of Yovani Gallardo (ankle), who is being skipped a start - so it may be a short-term move. Nelson is 5-1 with a 1.71 ERA and a 9.0 K/9 at Triple-A and should be picked up in NL-only leagues.
