Jimmy Nelson’s career with Los Angeles Dodgers
Nelson agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Dodgers on January 7, 2020, for a one-year deal for $1.25 million, with an option for a second year in the same amount in 2021.
Nelson will receive lower back surgery on July 6 and will be out for the remainder of the season, according to the team’s announcement.
Nelson became a free agent on October 30, 2020, after the Dodgers declined their team option on Nelson’s contract for the 2021 season, despite the fact that he had yet to make a pitch for the organization.
A minor-league deal with the Dodgers was re-signed by Nelson on December 11, 2020, according to the Dodgers’ official website.
Nelson was named to the 40-man roster on March 25, 2021, by the Dodgers.
Nelson pitched in 28 games for the Dodgers, compiling a 1–2 record and a 1.86 earned run average while striking out 44 and walking only 13 batters. However, he was unable to maintain his health.
He was put down in early August after it was decided that he would require both Tommy John surgery and a flexor tendon repair in his right arm.
He had missed 18 games due to forearm irritation and another 14 due to a left lumbar strain before he was sent down for good.
Nelson agreed to a one-year contract with the Dodgers to return for the 2022 season, which included a club option for the following season.
