Brewers | Jimmy Nelson finished for 2015

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 15:24:33 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson (head) will not make another start in 2015, according to manager Craig Counsell. Nelson was hit on the back of the head by a line drive Thursday, Sept. 17. Counsell said Nelson did not have a setback, but the risk outweighed the reward of making another start this season.

Fantasy Tip: Seasonal owners can drop Nelson ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) in all redraft formats. Tyler Cravy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) will enter the rotation, but Cravy is a weak fantasy given his 6.84 ERA as a starting pitcher this season.

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 17:17:43 -0700

Updating previous reports, Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson (head) will spend a second consecutive night in the hospital after being hit in the head by a line drive Thursday, Sept. 17. Manager Craig Counsell said this is being done as a precautionary measure and there is no indication that he has suffered a concussion. However, a CT scan did reveal a contusion.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the team being out of contention, Counsell said Nelson ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) could return to action before the end of the regular season. He is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday, Sept. 22, against the Chicago Cubs, although it remains to be seen if he will be able to pitch on that date.

Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson (head) had a CT scan reveal a contusion after he was hit on the back of the head by a line drive Thursday, Sept. 17, and he will remain hospitalized for observation.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Nelson ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) will pitch again this year, but with the Brewers out of contention they certainly won't rush him back. Prepare for the possibility that he's thrown his last pitch of 2015.

Brewers | Jimmy Nelson has struggled at home

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 13:15:17 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson is 0-3 with a 6.93 ERA in his last four starts at home. Against the New York Mets, who he faces Wednesday, June 24, he's 0-1 with a 2.25 ERA in two career starts. Nelson has allowed double-digit hits in back-to-back losses for the first time in 27 starts.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is the very picture of a risk/reward play on FantasyScore. On the one hand, it's tough to go with a struggling pitcher in a hitter-friendly environment, but the Mets rank 28th in OPS against right-handed pitchers this year (.659).

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 18:09:02 -0700

Fantasy Tip: To say Nelson ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has struggled mightily against St. Louis in his career is an understatement. Since last season, he has allowed 20 runs on 23 hits over 14 2/3 innings with losses in each of his four appearances versus the Cards.
