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.
