Last seen in the majors on September 8, 2017, Nelson is on the verge of returning from a partially torn labrum and a strained rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder. He looks ready to rejoin Milwaukee's rotation after recording eight strikeouts in 5.2 scoreless innings in his third Triple-A rehab start. Before the injury cut his 2017 short, he had posted a 3.49 ERA and 199 strikeouts in 175.1 innings. Stash him now if still sitting on the waiver wire.

Nelson was top five in xFIP prior to his injury that has taken much longer to recover from than expected. There is a chance he will return in May, but even if he does, it doesn't necessarily mean he will return to form right away or even ever.
