Brewers | Johnny Hellweg bulks up

Thu, 20 Feb 2014 13:49:30 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers SP Johnny Hellweg spent the winter bulking up to avoid wearing down and losing weight during the season. Hellweg finished last year weighing 208 pounds and entered camp weighing 245 pounds. "Just worked out hard, changed my diet, ate right," said Hellweg, 25. "I cut out a lot of bad stuff in my diet. Mostly protein and carbs, no gluten. It helped. It was a lot of work, actually. In the end I was sick of eating so much this offseason. It's a grind." He went 12-5 with a 3.15 ERA in 23 starts in the minors last year but struggled with command after his call-up to the majors. Hellweg is expected to start the year in the minors again.

Brewers | Johnny Hellweg receiving rest

Tue, 18 Jun 2013 12:48:57 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Johnny Hellweg hasn't made a start for Triple-A Nashville since June 11, and he won't pitch in the next few days. The team is having him rest so that they "don't face inning limits later in the year." Ps Jimmy Nelson and Tyler Thornburg, who are also with Nashville, will be on a similar plan. Hellweg is 6-4 with a 3.06 ERA in 13 starts (70 2/3 innings). He's struck out 48, walked 44 and is limiting opponents to a .197 average.

Fantasy Tip: Hellweg, Nelson and Thornburg could be September call-ups, but it's not realistic to expect them before that. They're probably strictly NL-only commodities if they make their major league debuts this season.
