CHICAGO, IL - SEPTEMBER 08: Jimmy Nelson #52 of the Milwaukee Brewers pitches in the first inning against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field on September 8, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois.

MILWAUKEE — According to a recent tweet from the Milwaukee Brewers, pitcher Jimmy Nelson will miss the rest of the season.

Milwaukee Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson left Friday night’s 2-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs after jamming his right shoulder.

Nelson singled off the left-field wall in the fifth inning and hurt his shoulder diving back to first after rounding the base. He is scheduled for tests on Saturday, though the Brewers don’t think the injury is serious.

Nelson threw four-hit ball over five innings. The 28-year-old right-hander struck out seven and walked two while winning his third straight start.

Nelson felt discomfort pitching the fifth, though he got out of a first-and-third jam when he retired Anthony Rizzo on a fly to deep center. Josh Hader came on to start the sixth for Milwaukee.
