Fantasy Tip: Hellweg is one the Brew Crew's top pitching prospects, and it's a great sign for his recovery that he's throwing that hard. Keep him on your radar in dynasty and keeper leagues.

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.
