  • Nick Nelson Shut Down With Hamstring Injury

    Philadelphia Phillies relieverNick Nelson(hamstring) was diagnosed with a moderate left hamstring strain, which forced the Phils to shut him down. There is no timetable for Nelson's return, but he will likely miss the start of the season.Cristopher Sanchezwas also shut down after coming across bicep soreness. The Phillies lost four relievers over the offseason and are already short on bullpen staff with these two setbacks. They addedGregory Soto,Matt Strahm, andCraig Kimbrel to counter the bullpen losses. Nelson molded a 4.85 ERA last season across 47 appearances. The 27-year-old struck out 69 batters, along with a 22.5% strikeout rate. He needs to slim down his walk rate, which accumulated to 11.8%. Nelson is off the fantasy radar in most league formats in 2023.

  • Nick Nelson To Start Grapefruit League Opener

    Philadelphia Phillies manager Rob Thomson said that right-hander Nick Nelson will start the team's Grapefruit League opener at home against the New York Yankees on Saturday. In his first season with the Phillies in 2022, Nelson went 3-2 with a 4.85 ERA (3.04 FIP), 1.48 WHIP, one save and 22.6 percent strikeout rate in a career-high 68 2/3 innings over 47 appearances (two starts). There's a chance that the 27-year-old could make some spot starts again for the Phillies in 2023, but Nelson should serve mostly in a long-relief role out of the bullpen, giving him hardly any fantasy appeal.
