Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson looked so strong Friday night at Wolff Stadium, it might be his last game in San Antonio.
Nelson pitched in his third rehab appearance for the San Antonio Missions. He went 5 2/3 scoreless innings to get the win. He gave up three hits with eight strikeouts and one walk.
The 6-foot-6 right-hander missed all of last season with a shoulder injury. Nelson had a 12-6 record with a 3.49 ERA for the Brewers in 2017.
Nelson is tentatively scheduled to make another start for the Missions on their next road trip. If Friday’s game was any indication, he might be back with the Brewers before long.
