    I’m having a really hard time understanding why Nelson is still in the minors. Someone please, enlighten me.

      You and me both buddy. The only reason possible is Super 2 Avoidance and that day comes up within the week following the All Star break. The biggest problem to me is that by then Nelson will have what? 130IP? and only have around 50-55IP roughly left in him before being shut down(guessing) or around 9Starts? Couldn’t Milwaukee just use him on the ML roster now? And then rather than shut him down, send him down to AAA to finish the season with 1ip every 5 days out of the bullpen?

      It’s just sad that he’s out there tossing 6-7 quality start innings in AAA and we’re putting up with non quality starts from Estrada time and time again. This week’s matchups were perfect to insert Nelson vs. Hamels and vs. Wainwright. Games you fully expect the opponents to win due to Cy Young Pitchers doing just that, pitching Cy Young stuff and shutting Milw down. Nelson would have had zero pressure out there to get warmed up and then the real test would have been after the All Star break for him to bear down and try maintaining Quality Starts.
