With Yovani Gallardo hurting his ankle in his last start The Brewers brought up Jimmy Nelson from AAA to get the start Sunday.

Jimmy Nelson has been dominant this year in The PCL with a line of:

1.71 ERA, 0.931 WHIP, and a 9.00 K/9 over 58 innings.

Now there hasn't been any news to believe that Gallardo will miss an extended period of time or even land on The DL. But Jimmy Nelson will be getting the ball Sunday for sure. Not sure how much opportunity Nelson will get past Sunday but he could be a very nice stream with potential to possibly get another start here if he does well.

"Choosing between stats and scouting is like choosing between beer and tacos. In other words, its a choice nobody should have to make, since both are great and are perhaps even better when consumed together."

Here's a great read on him I posted in the minor league thread: http://www.fangraphs...g-almost-ready/

This guy isn't even available in Yahoo right now. Not sure how he will adjust or how long he stays but considering he is arguably Milwaukee's best pitching prospect he might be worth a gamble.

He is available on most Yahoo leagues, maybe your league has restrictions. Been stashing this guy so hoping he comes out dishing.

That's very weird he is available in 1 of my leagues but not my other. We use NA and specs and both leagues and I don't see any restriction on the rule page. Maybe this is just a glitch with Yahoo. Anyone else unable to add him?

I was able to add him in my Yahoo league. He's listed as Not Active and designated as P (not SP). I'll be rolling him out.

I see, think I figured it out. We only use SP and RPs in this league so that is probably why he is not available. Hopefully yahoo makes him an SP soon so I can scoop him up before someone else does.

I imagine with the Brewers starting pitching that the only chance that Nelson has to pitch beyond this one start is if Gallardo misses more than the 1 start.

My concern is his walks but he looks like a good spot start tomorrow.

I hope this guy talks in third person in the post game interview. "Jimmy threw good. Jimmy felt good today. Jimmy will build off his first major league start."

Sent back down already as expected. We'll probably see him again this season. As the old saying goes, you can never have too much starting pitching. I can't see all the starters of the Brewers staying healthy. What are the chances the Brewers explore dealing a starter for some offense? They have two guys that could come up and probably start for them in Fiers and Nelson.

Here on June 9 he has pitched to the tune of 1.51 era and 76Ks over 71 innings pitched. And don't forget a scoreless spot start in the bigs. At 25 he has no reason to keep wasting away in the minors. They need move Estrada to the pen or make up an injury for overpaid Matt Garza and give Nelson a shot. His shot has to be coming soon so here's a heads up if you have overlooked him this season.

Jimmy doesn't like misunderstandings. See jimmy likes to see his thread here only if he is called back up. Jimmy and misunderstandings kind of clash.
