Independent Baseball Chatter - by Bob Wirz

Johnny Hellweg has been pitching professionally for 10 seasons including a 42-day stay in the major leagues four years ago when the Milwaukee Brewers gave him seven starts (1-4, 6.75), but the 6-foot-7 Michigan native could not have imagined what was ahead of him after he had saved 19 games for the New Jersey Jackals and his Can-Am contract was sold to the Pittsburgh Pirates organization with a mere 10 days remaining in the minor league campaign.

MOONEY JOINS ALBERS AND FONT IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Independent Baseball Chatter - by Bob Wirz

The 5-foot-8 Peter Mooney was a regular for the Jackals in 2015, hitting .263 with a nice .372 on-base percentage and a four-homer, 27-RBI campaign for 95 games. This year he was Triple-A New Orleans's shortstop for 96 games while playing in 116 in all including some time at both second and third base. Defense was his thing as it usually is with a shortstop. Still only 27, Mooney went .213-4-34 with 18 doubles offensively, and most importantly he has been invited to represent the Marlins in the prestigious Arizona Fall League with these opportunities normally only going to players considered legitimate major league prospects.
