May 24, 2019 - 1:50 pm

The Brewers were skepitcal on whether or not Thursday would be Jimmy Nelson's last rehab outing in triple-A San Antonio.  Nelson has appeared in four games for the Missions and has started in three.  For Nelson, it's been an up and down roller coaster in those four appearances.  He's recorded a 4.74 ERA and has given up ten runs in nineteen innings.  Just a couple hours ago, the Brewers announced that Nelson would be reinstated from the ten-day injured list but will be optioned to San Antonio to continue his rehab assignment.
