Brewers prospect wins PCL Pitcher of the Year

Nashville Sounds pitcher Johnny Hellweg was named the Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Year today.

Hellweg went 11-5 with a 3.16 ERA in 22 starts for the Sounds.  He ranks 2nd in the PCL in ERA and is tied for 2nd in wins.

Hellweg becomes the fourth pitcher in the Sounds’ 36-year franchise history to capture his league’s Pitcher of the Year honor.

The Milwaukee Brewers prospect has gone 10-1 in his last 15 starts.

Hellweg joined the Brewers organization after spending four years in the Angels system.  He was acquired from Los Angeles last July in the Zach Greinke deal.
