Young Superstars II #33 - Juan Nieves

Our second Brewer in a row.

Nieves only stuck around for two years and posted a 32-25 record.

The crowning achievement of his brief career came on April 15, 1987. The Brewers were off to an 8-0 start when Nieves took the ball on the 15th. That day, against the Orioles, Nieves threw to date the only no hitter in Brewers history. His line for the day reads: 0 hits, 7 strikeouts, 5 walks. Not too bad.

His career stat line isn't that bad.
