    View Draft Report
    Nelson was an all-state starting pitcher in 2013 in Utah, when he sat 88-91 mph at his best. He's quick-armed but small of stature at 5-foot-11, 175 pounds, and has run his fastball up to 95 mph in short bursts this season. He's throwing more strikes this year as well but lacks the pitch efficiency and secondary stuff to start as a pro. He's a future arm-strength reliever.
