Diamondbacks acquired RHP Jeremy Hellickson from the Rays for OF Justin Williams and SS Andrew Velazquez.
The former American League Rookie of the Year has struggled with injuries and poor performance in recent years, but should benefit from the move to the Senior Circuit. He's a flyball pitcher with the propensity to serve up the long ball though, which could be a major problem at Chase Field. He's unlikely to generate much mixed league fantasy value, but could be a solid source of innings in NL-only formats. Nov 14 - 10:26 PM

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Diamondbacks have acquired Jeremy Hellickson from the Rays.

Cotillo reports that outfielder Justin Williams will head to the Rays as part of the deal. The 27-year-old will surely benefit from a move to the National League West, but with low strikeout totals isn't likely to become mixed league relevant.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Diamondbacks have expressed interest in trading for Rays right-hander Jeremy Hellickson.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported Monday morning that the Rays are likely to move Hellickson to a National League team at some point during this week's GM Meetings in Arizona. Hellickson had an ugly 4.52 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 63 2/3 innings this past season for Tampa Bay, but the 27-year-old former American League Rookie of the Year would make for a decent reclamation project for just about any NL club.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Rays are close to trading Jeremy Hellickson to a National League team.

Sherman says the trade will "likely" be finalized this week. Hellickson won Rookie of the Year honors in 2011 and had another excellent season in 2012, but he's battled injuries and ineffectiveness in the years since. The 27-year-old right-hander may do better with a change of scenery (and a move to the more pitcher-friendly league).
Nov 10 - 10:23 AM

Jeremy Hellickson allowed six runs (five earned) in 2 1/3 innings as the Rays were hammered in an 11-1 loss to the Red Sox on Thursday.

The Red Sox were all over Hellickson from the beginning. The right-hander yielded eight hits while striking out two and walking none. It's hard to ding him too harshly for mediocre numbers, as he missed the first three months of the season after undergoing elbow surgery in January. Hellickson wraps up his 2014 season with a 4.52 ERA, a 1.45 WHIP, and a 54/21 K/BB ratio.
Sep 25 - 11:00 PM

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that Jeremy Hellickson's name "has been surfacing" as teams "start putting together lists of pitchers who could be had in trade this offseason."

The Rays still have pitching depth even after dealing David Price, so it's possible they could trade Hellickson or someone else in order to add offense. The right-hander has been up-and-down in 12 post-Tommy John surgery starts, but he's under team control through 2016 and posted a 3.06 ERA over his first two-and-a-half big league seasons.

Jeremy Hellickson struggled in a losing effort against the White Sox on Friday, surrendering four runs on seven hits in just 4 2/3 innings of work.

Hellickson walked two and struck out one on the night. He cruised through the first four innings unscathed, but the White Sox strung together five hits and a walk to scratch out all four runs before chasing Hellickson in the fifth. He'll head into his final start of the 2014 campaign (against the Red Sox in Boston on Thursday) with a 1-4 record, 3.96 ERA and 1.37 WHIP.
Sep 19 - 10:42 PM

Jeremy Hellickson pitched well but settled for a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Saturday after allowing two runs (three earned) on four hits over his six frames.

Hellickson punched out eight hitters on the afternoon while walking four. All three runs against him came across in the third inning, one of them unearned due to a throwing error. The right-hander will carry a 1-3 record, 3.63 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 51/19 K/BB ratio into Friday's start against the White Sox.
Sep 13 - 3:55 PM

Jeremy Hellickson limited the Orioles to two runs over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision Sunday.

Hellickson was going strong until the sixth inning, when a David Lough single preceded a Nelson Cruz home run for the Orioles' only two runs in the game. The hits were two of the four Hellickson surrendered on the day, walking two. The right-hander struck out six and left with the lead before the bullpen blew his win. Hellickson will continue to look for his second win Saturday at the Blue Jays.
Sep 7 - 7:19 PM

Jeremy Hellickson fell to 1-3, allowing five runs in 3 1/3 innings as the Rays suffered an 8-2 loss to the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

For the second start in a row, Hellickson was unable to make it through five innings. After a scoreless first, the Jays scored in Hellickson's next three frames. Overall, the right-hander gave up eight hits -- including home runs to Jose Reyes and Danny Valencia -- while walking two and striking out two. Hellickson will take a 3.74 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and a 37/13 K/BB ratio into Sunday's home start against the Orioles.
Sep 2 - 11:43 PM

Jeremy Hellickson couldn't make it out of the fifth inning but got a no-decision, allowing four runs (three earned) in 4 1/3 innings as the Rays fell to the Orioles on Thursday.

Hellickson gave up two runs in the first and two more in the fifth. The right-hander yielded eight hits and a pair of walks while striking out two, throwing 88 pitches before being lifted for reliever Jeff Beliveau. Hellickson has a 2.98 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP, and a 35/11 K/BB ratio. He'll take on the Blue Jays at home in his next start on Tuesday.
Aug 28 - 10:47 PM

Jeremy Hellickson got a no-decision, allowing two runs in 6 1/3 innings, as the Rays lost 5-4 in 10 innings on Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Hellickson pitched well, allowing only three hits and a walk while striking out eight. But the Jays were able to plate a pair of runs in the third inning on a walk and a pair of doubles, and the Rays' bullpen couldn't protect Hellickson's lead. The right-hander has a 2.61 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP, and a 33/9 K/BB ratio in 38 innings this season. Hellickson will toe the rubber next on Thursday in Baltimore against the Orioles.
Aug 23 - 4:51 PM

Jeremy Hellickson suffered his second loss of the season after allowing three runs in five innings on Sunday against the Yankees.

The right-hander wasn't terrible, but the Yankees were able to bunch up their hits just enough to eke out a victory. Hellickson gave up four hits, walked two, and struck out five. He'll take a 2.56 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and a 25/8 K/BB ratio in 31 2/3 innings into Saturday's road start against the Blue Jays.
Aug 17 - 5:20 PM

Jeremy Hellickson threw six scoreless innings but settled for a no-decision against the Rangers on Tuesday.

The right-hander scattered six hits and a walk, striking out six, but his bullpen couldn't hold on to give Hellickson his second win of the season. Still, it was his second encouraging outing in a row, lowering his ERA to 2.03 through five starts. Hellickson will try to keep the ball rolling when he takes on the Yankees on Sunday.
Aug 13 - 12:56 AM

Jeremy Hellickson fired seven innings of one-run ball Wednesday in the Rays' 7-3 defeat of the A's.

Hellickson was flat-out dominant in the afternoon start, yielding only two hits -- one of which was an Eric Sogard sixth-inning solo shot. He didn't walk a batter and struck out three. The right-hander has been pretty good since returning from elbow surgery in late July, boasting a 2.61 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 20 2/3 innings. Hellickson will take on the Rangers in Arlington, Texas next time through and looks to be a nice source of fantasy value for the stretch run.
