RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

The Brewers used Hellweg primarily as a reliever after acquiring him from the Angels in the Zack Greinke trade, but he had a strong overall season in his first go-around at Double-A, posting a 3.29 ERA in 139.2 innings over 28 games, including 23 starts, between the two organizations. Hellweg's issues with walks are evident in his career 6.4 BB/9 rate, but he has also given up just 13 home runs in 325.1 career innings. The Brewers have yet to decide on Hellweg's role for this season, and though he is expected to spend spring training with the big club, it is likely that he will open 2013 in the minors, especially if the development plan calls for him to remain a starter.

2012

Hellweg's prospect status jumped in 2011 thanks to his success as a starter late in the season. Over his final 10 games, all starts, Hellweg posted a 2.44 ERA and an impressive 71:20 K:BB ratio in 48 innings. Overall he posted an 11.4 K/9IP rate in 2011 after putting up a 13.6 K/9IP mark the year before, so it's clear he knows how to strike guys out. Hellweg still needs to do a better job limiting baserunners (1.500 WHIP in 2011), but his stock will continue to rise if he can maintain his success in the starting role.
