Davey Nelson, analyst for Brewers television crew and team alumni director, dies at 73

Prothena’s lead drug has decisively failed a crucial Phase IIb study for rare, second-line cases of AL amyloidosis. And after concluding that their Phase III for frontline use is also headed to failure, the biotech’s executive team is scrapping the whole program.

Davey Nelson, who held a variety of roles since 2001 with the Milwaukee Brewers, including analyst for the television broadcast crew, died Monday at 73 after a battle with liver cancer.

The former all-star infielder joined the Brewers in 2001 as roving minor-league outfield instructor and served as their first base coach from 2003-’06. In 2006, he moved into a broadcasting role as analyst for FOX Sports Wisconsin and also served in the team’s front office as director of alumni relations.
