Description: Top Milwaukee prospect Jimmy Nelson has been recalled and will start on Saturday.
Insight: He's replacing Marco Estrada who has been sent to the bullpen. Nelson has pitched very well for Triple-A Nashville (10-2, 1.459 ERA, .919 WHIP and 114 Ks in 111 IP). Minor league success doesn't always translate to the majors, but he has all the tools.

Description: Jimmy Nelson will make his second major league start Sunday against the Marlins.
Insight: He's filling in for Yovani Gallardo who had his turn skipped because of an ankle injury. Nelson has pitched well for Triple-A Nashville (5-1, 1.71 ERA in nine starts) but as we all know, that doesn't guarantee success at the major league level.

Description: The Brewers have a young pitcher who has spent most of this season at Double-A Huntsville, Jimmy Nelson, worth keeping an eye on for a late season or future call up.
Insight: The 24-year-old right-hander was just 5-4, but with a stolid 2.74 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and a 72/15 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He's since been pushed up to Triple-A Nashville (PCL) for his last two starts where he has struggled a bit with his control.
