Jimmy Nelson: Exclusive B/R Interview with Milwaukee Brewers Pitching Prospect

With their lone second-round pick in the 2010 MLB first-year player draft, the Milwaukee Brewers took 6'6", 240-pound right-hander Jimmy Nelson out of the University of Alabama.

Designated to Milwaukee's rookie club in Helena later that year, Nelson went 2-0, posting a 3.71 ERA with 33 strikeouts in 26.2 innings pitching in just his first minor league season.  His performance was enough for Baseball America to rank the power right-hander as the Brewers' eighth overall prospect heading into the 2011 season.

I was fortunate enough to speak with Nelson on a number of different topics, ranging from his draft-day experiences to his favorite food.  The following slides contain everything you need to know about the young prospect.
