Jimmy Nelson went 2-9 this season, but he still has a bright future with the Brewers. He came into 2014 rated the teams #1 prospect, and while he opened the season with the club was quickly demoted for more AAA seasoning. He dominated AAA hitters, and was called back up in July. His numbers were not great, but he is a very smart pitcher and I like to think that he will adjust to major league hitters as he spends more time against them this spring. He projects as a solid #3 pitcher, or eventually a power closer. Either way, he should not spend any more time toying with minor league hitters, and I think he is in the bigs to stay. The Brewers are very lucky to have him.
This card was a steal at $2.00.
