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.

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.

Brewers | Jimmy Nelson coming up?

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 09:45:17 -0700

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.

Brewers | Marco Estrada's rotation spot in jeopardy?

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 15:29:31 -0700

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.

Brewers | Jimmy Nelson in the plans?

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 15:25:57 -0700

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.
