Nick Nelson (Robert M Pimpsner/Pinstriped Prospects)


[Interview]: Nick Nelson enters Major League radar for 2020

When the New York Yankees had to finalize their 40-man roster in late November, one of the additions they made was right-handed starting pitcher Nick Nelson. Nelson, who was the Yankees’ 4th Round pick in the 2016 MLB Draft, came off of a good 2019 campaign with Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre.

While with the Thunder, Nelson was 7-2 with a 2.35 ERA in 13 games. He had 83 strikeouts to 35 walks over the course of 65 innings. He would get the promotion to Scranton Wilkes-Barre in August, where he would make four starts. He was 1-1 with a 4.71 ERA and had 24 strikeouts to 7 walks in 21 innings.

Last week, we had the opportunity to talk to Nelson about his eventful offseason, his 2019 season, and the role that sabermetrics has had on his career, including the evolution of one of his offspeed pitches.
