Joe Nelson a Ray

Postby jlm53089 » Wed Dec 24, 2008 8:36 pm

The Rays have made an attempt to help their bullpen out and signed Joe Nelson...

I like the 1 year deal. We were trying to trade for him at the deadline.

Nice way to support the bullpen ;-D

Not to familiar with him but it looks like a good signing. Anyone help me out with what he works with, velocity, control, etc?

This isn't the same Nelson that pitched for the Mariners and Yankees for all those years, is it?

That was curve specialist Jeff Nelson.


Nelson was a respected slider specialist, much more effective against right-handed batters than against lefties (who batted 55 points higher, and slugged 106 points higher, against him than did righties). He was also known for his three-quarters sidearm delivery, and threw a cut 90-MPH fastball as well.

Oh, OK. Good.
I wasn't sure why anybody would be so excited about their team signing a haggard, old righty. :-D
