MLB notes: Brewers lose starter Nelson

Cubs Game Notes For Friday vs. Milwaukee

The team announced that Jimmy Nelson's shoulder will sideline him for the remainder of 2017.

Manager Craig Counsell said afterward he was "optimistic" about Nelson's prognosis, as the pitcher had told team officials he wasn't in any significant pain.

Jimmy Nelson is eight strikeouts shy of becoming the first Brewers pitcher with at least 200 strikeouts in a single season since Yovani Gallardo in 2012 (204). The first three are in Chicago, starting Friday night. The right-hander threw four-hit ball over five innings, while striking out seven and walking two en route to winning his third straight start.

In my eyes, the pitching matchup is even, so with that cancelling out, the Brewers have outplayed the Cubs I the first two games of the set and need these wins much more than the Cubs do. Milwaukee trails the Rockies by three games in the race for the second NL Wild Card spot.

In her response, Sinn Féin's leader in the north Michelle O'Neill said the DUP had previously failed to honour its agreements. She warned there were small windows over the next two months to make progress.

Nelson was tied for the league lead with 29 starts this season, racking up a 12-6 record, 3.49 ERA and 199 strikeouts in 175 1/3 innings.

There's some talent and experience in that group, but losing Nelson really tightens that rotation up.

Every win is going to count down the stretch, especially as the Brewers attempt to make up ground, and getting the most out of their roster is one way to ensure success. Their confidence and resilience has been strong all season, and there's no reason to believe that will change any time soon. As the Brewers have shown all year though, baseball isn't always driven by talent. Just check out Saturday's game for evidence.
