The Milwaukee Brewers have placed right-handed starting pitcher Jimmy Nelson on the club’s 10-day disabled list, the franchise has formally announced. Nelson is still considered to be lost for the rest of the season as he will more than likely be forced to undergo surgery on his injured right shoulder. However, Nelson remains in line to seek a second opinion while surgery is still probable. The 28-year-old started 29 games for the Brewers this season, going 12-6 with a 3.49 ERA. Over 175.1 innings of work, Nelson has allowed 171 hits while striking out 199 opposing batters. Nelson, who played his collegiate baseball at the University of Alabama, was originally selected by the Cincinnati Reds in the 39th round of the 2007 MLB June Amateur Draft. However, he failed to sign, and three years later, he was chosen by the Brewers in the second round of the draft.
