  • Ryne Nelson Has Elbow Contusion

    Headshot for Ryne Nelson

    Updating a previous report, Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Ryne Nelson (elbow) was removed from Thursday night's loss to the San Francisco Giants after two innings due to a right-elbow contusion that he suffered when he was hit by a comebacker. While Nelson looked to be in considerable pain after taking the shot to his pitching arm, it looks like he avoided any fractures or breaks to his elbow. That doesn't mean the 26-year-old won't have to go on the injured list, but for now, it appears Nelson has avoided a serious injury and has a good shot to make his next scheduled start for the D-backs. Coming into Thursday's start, his fourth of the season, the former second-rounder in 2019 out of Oregon had a 5.27 ERA and 1.61 WHIP with five walks and 13 strikeouts in 13 2/3 innings in starts against the Yankees, Braves and Cardinals.

  • Ryne Nelson Removed From Start After Taking Comebacker To The Wrist

    Headshot for Ryne Nelson

    Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Ryne Nelson (wrist) was removed from his start early on Thursday night against the San Francisco Giants in the second inning after taking a comebacker off his right wrist before recording the final out of the frame. Before hitting the showers early and likely going for an X-ray on his wrist, Nelson tossed two shutout innings with two hits allowed, no walks and no strikeouts to lower his season ERA to 4.60. He was replaced on the mound by left-hander Logan Allen. Fantasy managers wondering if the 26-year-old Nelson will be able to make his next start will need to check back later on Thursday night or Friday morning for more information on the severity of his injury. If Nelson needs a stint on the injured list, the D-backs could bring Tommy Henry back after just optioning him to Triple-A Reno.

  • Tommy Henry, Ryne Nelson Both Make The Rotation

    Headshot for Tommy Henry

    With Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez (lat) opening the year on the injured list, the two pitchers that were competing for the fifth spot in the starting rotation in spring training, Tommy Henry and Ryne Nelson, will both make the Opening Day rotation. Henry appeared to be behind Nelson in the battle for the fifth spot this spring, so he figures to be in more danger of getting booted once E-Rod makes his season debut. The 26-year-old southpaw pitches to contact and shouldn't be attractive outside of NL-only fantasy leagues. Nelson, 26, had a nice 2.66 ERA with 26 strikeouts in 20 1/3 Cactus League innings. He was underwhelming in 2023 with a 5.31 ERA and 1.42 WHIP but has more upside than Henry in NL-only affairs now that he's officially locked into a rotation spot in the desert.

  • Ryne Nelson, Tommy Henry To Compete For Final Rotation Spot

    Headshot for Tommy Henry

    Arizona Diamondbacks right-handers Zac Gallen and Merrill Kelly return from last season, while left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez has been added to their starting rotation via free agency. Brandon Pfaadt seemingly has a leg up on the No. 4 spot given the way he pitched in the postseason. The fifth spot will be hard-fought between mainly righty Ryne Nelson and lefty Tommy Henry. Nelson spent the majority of the season as a starter for Arizona in 2023 and had a 5.31 ERA and 1.42 WHIP with 96 K's in 144 innings but was demoted to relief late in the year. Henry was a bit more effective with a 4.15 ERA and 1.36 WHIP with 64 strikeouts in 89 innings but was left off the postseason roster. Nelson has more upside as more of a strikeout pitcher, but either player could be useful in NL-only leagues if they win a rotation spot.
