Prospect of the Day:  RHP Jimmy Nelson

Despite the Brewers having a slew of potential mid-to-back-end starters in Double-A and Triple-A, I’m often convinced right-hander Jimmy Nelson will be the best of the bunch. Guys like Johnny Hellweg may have higher upside and Taylor Jungmann has an extremely high floor, but Nelson profiles as a true mid-rotation workhorse. He needed only 71 pitches to throw six innings and generated a ridiculous 10:1 groundball-to-strike ratio.

Nelson got into some trouble in the first inning, loading the bases via a single, an error, a walk and a hit batter, but he struck out Jacksonville’s Jake Smolinski before getting Zack Cox to ground into the double play — limiting the damage to only one unearned run. After that, the former Alabama Crimson Tide starter only allowed two hits in the following five innings, completely neutralizing the Jacksonville Suns’ offense.

It was his second-consecutive positive outing to start the season, which is important because Nelson struggled once he was promoted to Double-A Huntsville last year. Opposing hitters still had a difficult time squaring up the baseball, but his walk rate jumped dramatically to 7.24 BB/9 with the Stars in 2012. Through two starts, his strikeout-to-walk ratio is 12-to-2. Vastly improved.
