In something of a surprise move, the Brewers announced today that they have reinstated Jimmy Nelson from the injured list and optioned him to Triple-A. He has shown he’s finally back to health after a long layoff but obviously wasn’t deemed quite ready for the MLB rotation.
There had been some suggestion that Nelson might be brought back in a relief capacity if the club decided not to plug him in as a starter. Instead, he’ll keep working at the club’s top affiliate — presumably as a starter, though that’s not yet clear.
