UPDATE: Brewers Pitcher Jimmy Nelson out for rest of season

UPDATE: A tweet by the Milwaukee Brewers says pitcher Jimmy Nelson is out for the remainder of the 2017 season with a right rotator cuff strain and partial anterior labrum tear.


CHICAGO (AP) -- Milwaukee Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson has left Friday night's game against the Chicago Cubs because of a sore right arm.

The 28-year-old right-hander threw four-hit ball over five scoreless innings, striking out seven and walking two. He also singled off the left-field wall in the fifth and had to dive back to first after rounding the base.

Josh Hader came on to start the sixth for Milwaukee.
