The Milwaukee Brewers are casting doubt
CHICAGO (AP) — on Jimmy Nelson’s chances of returning this season.Nelson had shoulder surgery last September after he got hurt diving back to first after rounding the base on a single. It was a tough conclusion to a breakout year for the right-hander http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authenti...eda-jersey , who went 12-6 with a 3.49 ERA in 29 starts.The 29-year-old Nelson has been working out, but he is running out of time.“Jimmy pitching for us this year is unlikely,” manager Craig Counsell said before Wednesday’s 8-4 loss to the Chicago Cubs. “And that’s not due to a setback of any nature. That’s just due to the pace of his rehab right now. So we’re not ruling it 100 percent out, probably best goal is to just get him into a competitive situation before he shuts it down for the offseason. But I think at this point, pitching for us, the timetable to get there just doesn’t seem likely.”Even with Nelson out and a couple more pitching injuries, Milwaukee is in the thick of the playoff hunt in the National League. It is in position for a wild card and just three back of Chicago for the NL Central lead.Vying for their first postseason appearance since 2011 Phil Niekro Jersey , the Brewers added another pitching possibility when they acquired Jake Thompson from Philadelphia for cash considerations on Tuesday. Zach Davies also could rejoin the team down the stretch after being sidelined by an inflamed right rotator cuff and tight lower back.Thompson was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs. The 24-year-old right-hander is 7-8 with a 4.87 ERA in 18 starts and 30 major league appearances — all with the Phillies.“We look at him as another quality arm that adds to our depth,” general manager David Stearns said. “Similar to Jordan Lyles, he has experience starting and relieving. We’re going to look at him primarily as a reliever at this point. He’s another arm with options that we think can really just give us another guy to add to this rotation.”The Brewers claimed Lyles off waivers from San Diego on Aug. 5. He was hit hard in his first appearance with his new club, yielding three runs and three hits in 2 1/3 innings in a 10-1 loss at Atlanta on Friday.Davies made a rehab appearance with Double-A Biloxi on Saturday, surrendering four runs and five hits in five innings against Tennessee. He is scheduled to start for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday.“We’ll kind of take it from there,” Stearns said. “Part of this is how Zach is feeling. And he is beginning to feel better and I think getting more comfortable with where his body is at this point. Part of this is how our current group is performing and part of it is where we think Zach is at a performance level. All those are going to be taken into account. We are getting closer to September, so that could factor in.”The 25-year-old Davies is 2-5 with a 5.23 ERA in eight starts after winning 17 games last season. Stearns said they could have Davies make another rehab appearance after Saturday’s outing. SAN DIEGO – It is pretty clear how San Diego Padres manager Andy Green is approaching the final games of the 2018 season.The final series against the Arizona Diamondbacks is a continuing audition process for the three rookie pitchers in the Padres’ rotation.Each game features a Padres rookie going out against a Diamondback veteran.Article continues below ...On Friday night http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authenti...ine-jersey , rookie left-hander Eric Lauer held his own against Arizona veteran Patrick Corbin, and the Padres won the game 3-2 in 15 innings.Saturday night will feature Padres right-hander Jacob Nix making his ninth major league start, while Arizona goes with Zack Godley. And in Sunday’s season finale, the most seasoned of the Padres’ rookie starters, left-hander Joey Lucchesi, faces another veteran left-hander in Arizona’s Robbie Ray.The fact that the three rookies have started consecutive games on the final two weekends of the season — at Dodger Stadium and the final home weekend at Petco Park — is no coincidence.“I wanted to see them in the pressure at Dodger Stadium and again at home over the final three days of the season,” said Padres manager Andy Green. “It’s a chance to make the most of the situation.”The 22-year-old Nix Chipper Jones Jersey , the Padres’ third-round pick in the 2015 draft, will also be seeking some redemption Saturday night.He will be facing the Diamondbacks for the second time. And the first time didn’t go very well. In fact, it was the worst outing of his eight major-league starts. On Aug. 16 at Petco Park, in his second major league start, Nix gave up five runs on five hits and two walks with a strikeout in just two-thirds of an inning against Arizona. One of the hits was a three-run homer by David Peralta.His most recent start didn’t go particularly well, either. Last Saturday night at Dodger Stadium, Nix gave up six runs on six hits in just 2 1/3 innings.Overall http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authenti...ltz-jersey , Nix is 2-4 on the season with a 6.81 earned run average, a .303 opponents’ batting average and a 1.88 WHIP. Nix is 2-2 in five starts at Petco Park with a 4.67 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP and a .279 opponents’ batting average. Left-handed hitters are batting .314 against Nix while right-handers are hitting .290.Godley will be making his 33rd appearance of the season for the Diamondbacks and his 32nd start. He is 14-11 with a 4.75 ERA, a .261 opponents’ batting average and a 1.46 WHIP.Godley has not won a decision in September and has lost four straight starts since Aug. 29 – the most recent defeat coming on Sunday against the Rockies although he allowed only two runs on six hits over five innings.Godley is 2-1 this season against the Padres despite a 5.24 ERA in five games (four starts). He has given up 13 earned runs in 22 1/3 innings.He is 3-4 lifetime against the Padres with a 5.40 ERA, allowing 35 runs in 58 1/3 innings over 14 games (10 starts). He is 0-3 with a 6.55 ERA during his career at Petco Park, where he has given up 16 runs in just 22 innings.Godley is 8-6 on the road this season with a 5.52 ERA in 17 starts.
