Jimmy Nelson (elbow) throws six shutout in Triple-A rehab start Friday

Jimmy Nelson (elbow) threw six scoreless innings in a rehab start for Triple-A San Antonio on Friday night.

Fantasy Impact

Nelson struck out eight, allowed three hits, and walked one. It was his third rehab start and he threw 86 pitches. He'll make one more start before being re-evaluated and possibly re-joining the Milwaukee rotation. The 29-year-old didn't pitch in the majors at all in 2018.

Jimmy Nelson pitches in extended spring training

Jimmy Nelson looked good in an extended spring training game on Tuesday, according to Brewers manager Craig Counsell. Counsell said that Nelson will likely pitch in one more extended spring training game before heading out on a Triple-A assignment.

Fantasy Impact

Nelson missed all of last season due to shoulder surgery and experienced elbow soreness this spring, but it sounds like he is getting closer to finally returning to the Brewers' rotation. Nelson had a breakout year in 2017, and is an interesting stash candidate for those with an open IL spot.

Jimmy Nelson (elbow) receives cortisone shot

Jimmy Nelson (elbow) received a cortisone shot on Friday and will be shut down from throwing for a few days.

Fantasy Impact

Nelson has been dealing with elbow trouble after missing all of 2018 with a shoulder injury. The plan is for him to begin the year in Triple-A until he can prove he can stay healthy. He's an interesting fantasy option if he ever makes it to the Milwaukee rotation this year, but there's obviously major injury risk.

Jimmy Nelson dealing with elbow soreness

Jimmy Nelson reported elbow soreness after pitching on the minor league side on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Nelson is going to take a few days off from throwing, but the Brewers say he's going to start the season at Triple-A as scheduled. The elbow wasn't the reason Nelson missed all of 2018, so this isn't so much a setback as a small ailment at this point. Hopefully a little extra rest will help him stay on track for the season.

Jimmy Nelson throws three strong innings Saturday

Jimmy Nelson allowed one unearned run on two hits over three innings in the Brewers' 5-4 spring victory over the Rockies. He struck out four and walked zero.

Fantasy Impact

This was really nice to see from Nelson, who hasn't seen major league action since September 2017 thanks to a shoulder injury. Before going down Nelson was looking like one of the big breakout pitchers of 2017. That year he posted a 3.05 FIP and 10.21 K/9 in 175.1 innings. If Nelson can regain even 85% of his skills from that season he'll be a draft day steal at his current FantasyPros consensus ADP of 336
