Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
This player will receive an outlook for the 2021 fantasy baseball season.
Fantasy teams aren't the only ones fancying strikeouts; major-league organizations chase them as well. Nelson's ability to miss bats and generate groundballs earned him a spot on the Yankees' 40-man roster. The Bronx Bombers will still probably give the 24-year old fireballer a chance to start, but the move to shield Nelson from the Rule 5 draft suggests he could be on the fast track as a reliever. Nelson rushes his heater to the plate in the mid-90s, touching 98. He also throws a power curve, splitter and cutter, but he lacks control of his secondary offerings, resulting in a high walk rate mitigating a double-digit strikeout rate at every level the past two seasons. Nelson should return to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre where he finished last season. If he can limit the free passes, Nelson could make his debut out of the bullpen later in the season.
