So, #Brewers GM David Stearns gave us more defined news on Jimmy Nelson. Will open season on injured list but is expected to pitch at start of AAA season instead of staying in extended spring training: "He'll get a couple of starts under his belt and then we'll re-evaluate."
Keuchel is asking for way too much money and way too long of a contract. That's why he's still unsigned. Yes, we will go into the season with no lefty starters. Do I like that? Of course not, but that's what we got.
#Brewers GM David Stearns on RHP Jimmy Nelson: "We just want to see constant progress. He has given us that over the course of spring. Jimmy wishes it was going faster but from our perspective this is about as good as we could have hoped for. We are seeing his stuff get better."
David Stearns on reliever Jeremy Jeffress: "He is making progress. Clearly, he's not going to be ready for opening day at this point. My sense is he's not going to be ready right when he's eligible (to come off DL). There's probably going to be a little time after that."
