Wegman led the California League in both wins (16) and ERA (1.30) at Stockton in 1982, earning Brewers Minor League Player of the Year honors, and by 1986 was in Milwaukee’s starting rotation. The 6’6″ right-hander was 5-12 in 1986 but improved to 12-11 the next year.
Throughout his career, Wegman earned the reputation as a workhorse who would chew up innings. He won a career-high 15 games in 1991, sporting a 2.84 ERA, and tossed at least 190 innings five times.
A hard-luck pitcher throughout his career, Wegman often posted poor records that belied the level to which he pitched. He spent his entire eleven-year career with the Brewers.
