Jimmy Nelson (elbow) heads to 10-day IL

The Brewers placed Jimmy Nelson on the 10-day injured list with a right elbow effusion.

Fantasy Impact

Nelson, who was recently moved to Milwaukee's bullpen, is basically dealing with fluid in his elbow. It's unclear how long he might be out for. Nelson has an 8.36 ERA in 14 major league innings this season.

Jimmy Nelson moving to the bullepn

Brewers manager Craig Counsell says Jimmy Nelson is moving into the bullpen.

Fantasy Impact

Nelson was a popular name to monitor throughout his rehab but still has some things to work on. The right-hander has allowed 13 earned runs in 12 innings since coming back to the majors. With the Brewers in contention they don't have time for Nelson to figure things out in the rotation. He can be dropped in most all leagues.

Jimmy Nelson allows five runs in loss Thursday

Jimmy Nelson allowed five runs on seven hits over five innings in the Brewers' 7-1 loss to the Reds on Thursday. He walked four and struck out five while falling to 0-2.

Fantasy Impact

Nelson continues to get hammered, and now has a 9.75 ERA on the year. He is unusable in fantasy right now. His next start comes Wednesday vs. Seattle.

Jimmy Nelson allows four runs in no-decision Saturday

Jimmy Nelson allowed four runs on five hits over four innings in the Brewers' 8-7 loss to the Giants on Saturday. He walked three and struck out six in the no-decision.

Fantasy Impact

This start was a little better than his first outing, but it's clear that Nelson has a lot of kinks to work out before he's ready to be a stable producer. Owners in deep leagues could keep Nelson on their bench as a stash, but no one should be starting him right now. His next outing comes Thursday vs. Cincinnati.

Jimmy Nelson allows four earned in return Wednesday

Jimmy Nelson allowed five runs (four earned) on four hits over three innings in the Brewers' 8-3 loss to the Marlins on Wednesday. He walked three and struck out two while falling to 0-1.

Fantasy Impact

This was Nelson's first start since 2017, so it's easy for us to excuse this poor performance. It will likely take him time to get stretched out, so he's not a great fantasy option right now. He could be in a few weeks, but Nelson is best left on the bench at this point. His next start comes Tuesday at Houston.
