Jeremy Hellickson allowed three earned runs over seven innings Monday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.
All three of those runs crossed the plate in the top of the first inning, with Phil Gosselin roping an RBI single and Jake Lamb blasting a two-run homer. Hellickson settled in from there, finishing with six strikeouts against zero walks, but he received only one run of support from the Philadelphia offense. He'll take a 4-6 record and 4.41 ERA into his next start on the road against the Giants. Jun 20 - 3:59 PM

Jeremy Hellickson lasted six innings but allowed four runs (all earned) on five hits and three walks while taking a loss against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

His ERA inches up to 4.46 as his record falls to 4-5 on the season. Hellickson's 8.37 K/9 is the best of his career but it has not transformed him into a quality fantasy pitcher. He makes for a decent matchup play or streamer during two-start weeks in mixed leagues, but that's about it. The right-hander is on tap for two starts next week, first at home against the Diamondbacks on Monday then at the Twins next Saturday.
Jun 15 - 10:53 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was clobbered in Friday's loss to the Nationals, giving up seven runs on nine hits over his six innings.

The right-hander also issued three free passes while punching out two. His offense staked him to an early 4-0 lead, but Hellickson allowed two runs in each of the third, fourth and fifth innings, and another in the sixth before he departed. His biggest problem was keeping the ball in the yard, as Wilson Ramos, Stephen Drew and Danny Espinosa each belted solo shots. Hellickson will carry a 4.34 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into Wednesday's outing against the Blue Jays.
Jun 10 - 10:56 PM

Jeremy Hellickson struggled in a no-decision against the Brewers on Saturday, surrendering three runs on seven hits over his five innings of work.

Hellickson struck out four and walked three in the contest. The Brewers didn't mount any large rallies against him, but scratched out single runs in the first, fourth and fifth innings. He'll look to get back on track when he brings a 3.80 ERA and 1.21 WHIP into Friday's start against the Nationals in Washington.
Jun 4 - 7:43 PM

Jeremy Hellickson pitched seven strong innings Monday, holding the Nationals to one run and striking out eight.

Hellickson gave up a homer to Daniel Murphy and it looked like he might have allowed another one to Ryan Zimmerman, but it was ruled a triple instead and he stranded Zimmerman on third. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to get Hellickson a win, even though he left with a one-run lead. Hellickson is 4-3 with a 3.68 ERA after 11 starts, and he might have some trade value for the Phillies this summer.
May 30 - 10:20 PM

Jeremy Hellickson struck out seven and allowed three runs over seven innings in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.

The Tigers struck with a run in the first, but Hellickson settled in for a while before coughing up a couple more tallies in the sixth. It was a good showing in what was a tough matchup, but he was easily out-distanced by Justin Verlander. The Phillies' righty will carry a 3.97 ERA into next week's start versus the Nationals.
May 24 - 10:02 PM

Jeremy Hellickson limited the Marlins to two runs over six innings Wednesday for his fourth win.

Hellickson gave up two runs in the top of the first inning but settled in from there, yielding only five total hits and issuing just one walk over his six solid frames. He struck out four. Hellickson, 29, now stands 4-2 with a 3.99 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 50/13 K/BB ratio in 49 2/3 innings this season for the surprising Phils. He will take on the Tigers next in a road start at Comerica Park.
May 18 - 3:45 PM

Jeremy Hellickson allowed two unearned runs over seven innings in a 3-2 win over the Reds on Friday.

Hellickson held the Reds to just four hits while walking just one batter and striking out nine. He amassed a total of 18 swinging strikes on the night, most of them with his changeup. If the impressive start wasn’t enough, he also drove in the go-ahead run in the fourth inning with a squeeze bunt. The former AL Rookie of the Year Award winner owns a 4.12 ERA and 46/12 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings over his first eight starts this season. The strikeouts are a big surprise. He averaged 6.7 K/9 for his career coming into this season.
May 13 - 10:36 PM

Jeremy Hellickson earned a no-decision against the Marlins on Saturday, yielding three runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Hellickson has been in a giving mood of late, surrendering five home runs in his last two starts. On Saturday, it was Marcell Ozuna and Justin Bour who dented the scoreboard with taters. Through seven starts, the 29-year-old right-hander holds a limp 4.91 ERA and 1.39 WHIP. A home start against the Reds shows next on his schedule.
May 7 - 10:42 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was bitten by the longball Monday, serving up three homers and six runs in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Cardinals.

Hellickson cruised through the first three innings, but he's long been homer-prone and he served up dingers to Adam Wainwright, Matt Adams and Aledmys Diaz in the middle innings. The veteran right-hander has mixed in some nice outings this season, including seven shutout frames against the Nationals his last time out, but he's also had three subpar showings to push his ERA up to 4.88. He'll try to bounce back this weekend in Miami.
May 2 - 11:50 PM

Jeremy Hellickson tossed seven scoreless innings on Wednesday to pick up his second win, allowing two hits and striking out eight Nationals.

Hellickson still has home-run issues that will plague his fantasy potential; however, he’s been a pleasant surprise in many ways. He has struck out 28 batters in just 26 innings. His ERA is now a palatable 3.81, which is paired with a 3.75 FIP. And his changeup/curveball combination has been a dynamic way to compensate for his continued velocity decline. The right-hander is next scheduled to square off against the Cardinals at Busch Stadium.
Apr 27 - 10:31 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was knocked around on Wednesday against the Mets, surrendering four runs on 10 hits and two homers in just 4 1/3 innings.

Hellickson has actually missed a fair amount of bats this year, striking out six on Wednesday and increasing his strikeout rate to 9.47 per nine innings. It just hasn’t been pretty when opposing hitters have put the ball in play or, more accurately, over the fence. The right-hander has given up four homers in just 19 innings, a problem that has plagued him throughout his big-league career. On a poor ballclub and with a tendency to get shelled, like on Wednesday against the Mets, Hellickson doesn’t have much appeal in any fantasy format.
Apr 20 - 11:43 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was tagged with six runs (five earned) over just three innings Friday against the Nationals.

It was his shortest outing since August 11, 2013. Five runs scored in the first inning, which was more than the Phillies gave up during their entire series against the Padres. Of course, the Nationals are not the Padres. The former AL Rookie of the Year Award winner was impressive over his first two starts, but we’re not buying from a fantasy perspective. He’ll try to rebound next week against the Mets.
Apr 15 - 10:51 PM

Jeremy Hellickson yielded just two runs on three hits over 5 2/3 innings in Sunday's win over the Mets.

Hellickson struck out five and walked one. He cruised through five innings, but ran into trouble with two outs in the sixth inning. David Wright dinged him for a double at that point. The double was followed by a wild pitch to move Wright to third. Yoenis Cespedes promptly swatted a two-run homer to end Hellickson's afternoon. That makes two serviceable starts in a row for the 29-year-old right-hander, as he did not allow an earned run to the Reds in his Opening Day start. He is scheduled to tango with the Nationals in a home start next time he toes the rubber.
Apr 10 - 4:11 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was excellent on Opening Day against the Reds on Monday, allowing just an unearned run over six innings.

He deserved better, as the Phillies’ bullpen ultimately blew his chance at a win in the eighth inning. Hellickson gave up just three hits total (all by Zack Cozart), with the lone run scoring on an error from Ryan Howard. He walked none and struck out six, including three whiffs of Joey Votto. Hellickson is just the ninth pitcher to strike out Votto three times in a game. The soon-to-be 29-year-old owns a 4.86 ERA over the last three seasons, so we’re not particularly high on him in fantasy leagues, but a nice first half could make him an interesting trade chip for rebuilding Philadelphia.
