Stars Activate Hellweg
Huntsville, Ala. – The Milwaukee Brewers and Huntsville Stars have made a pair of roster moves prior to tonight’s series opener against the Montgomery Biscuits. RHP Johnny Hellweg has been activated from the disabled list. RHP Brandon Kintzler was transferred to the Triple-A Nashville Sounds.
Hellweg was placed on the disabled on August 8, retroactive to August 7. He has gone 2-0 with a 2.70 ERA in two starts for the Stars since coming to the Brewers organization in the trade that sent Zach Greinke to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim back on July 27. In those two starts, the 23-year-old pitched 10 innings, giving up four runs (three earned) on six hits. He struck out 10 batters and walked nine. In his first outing, he allowed just one hit over five innings to Chattanooga.
Kintzler has gone 0-2 with a 3.28 ERA (35.2ip/13er) in 31 appearances. He’s converted nine of 10 save opportunities, while allowing 12 walks and striking out 20. The righty started the season on the Brewers 15-day disabled list before being optioned to the Stars on May 16.
With these moves, the Stars active roster is at 25 with three on the disabled list.
