Johnny Hellweg likely to require Tommy John surgery
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Brewers minor-league pitcher Johnny Hellweg has been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, and will likely require season-ending surgery to repair it, according to MLB.com.

Hellweg, who made seven spot starts for the Brewers a year ago, will visit Dr. James Andrews in the coming days to determine the extent of the injury.  Hellweg was diagnosed with the injury by the team's head physician, and is likely looking at Tommy John surgery.

Hellweg was 1-2 with a 4.95 ERA in four starts for Triple-A Nashville, and left his last start after just 3 2/3 innings.

Johnny Hellweg bulks up
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Brewers pitcher Johnny Hellweg bulked up during the offseason, according to MLB.com.

Hellweg finished last season weighing 208 pounds, but reported to camp at 245 pounds. "I cut out a lot of bad stuff in my diet," Hellweg said. "Mostly protein and carbs, no gluten. It helped. It was a lot of work, actually."

Hellweg said he feels great entering camp. He said he struggled with weight last season, but would not say whether he thought it contributed to some second half struggles. "I lost a lot of weight in July and August, so I just wanted to put it back on to make sure that if I was going to lose it again, I was going to be OK weight-wise,” he said

Hellweg posted a 6.75 ERA in 30 2/3 innings last season.

Brewers no longer have need for rotation competition
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With Matt Garza agreeing to a four-year, $52 million contract with the Brewers that doesn't bode well for some of the younger starting pitchers -- Tyler ThornburgJohnny Hellweg, Jimmy Nelson and Will Smith -- who were competing for the final spot in the team's rotation.

"I know it stinks for one of the young guys who was going to be competing for that extra spot, but they’ll have their opportunities," Brewers starting pitcher Kyle Lohse said. "This helps out the rotation a lot, I think. It’s a good thing for us."
