Rays optioned RHP Jeremy Hellickson to Double-A Montgomery.

He'll start there on Monday, as the Rays wanted to keep him pitching over the All-Star break. Hellickson will rejoin the big league rotation soon.
Jul 13 - 11:03 AM

Jeremy Hellickson allowed one run on six hits over 4 1/3 innings in his return to the mound against the Royals on Tuesday.

Making his season debut, Hellickson threw 84 pitches before giving way to the bullpen. The right-hander walked one and struck out two in the outing. Hellickson may get in one more start before the All-Star break -- he'd be on regular rest if he pitched Sunday, but the Rays won't need him until after the break -- but he should be a mainstay in the rotation in the second half either way.
Jul 8 - 10:48 PM

Rays activated RHP Jeremy Hellickson from the 15-day disabled list.

Hellickson is making his season debut on Tuesday against the Royals after missing the first three months with elbow issues. The right-hander owns a 3.70 career ERA and a 1.24 career WHIP in 576 1/3 major league innings and is worth a shot in deeper formats.
Jul 8 - 9:17 PM

Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) has been officially named the Rays' starter for Tuesday's game against the Royals.

It will be the right-hander's 2014 major league debut. Hellickson hasn't looked overly sharp on his minor league rehab assignment and has experienced multiple setbacks in his recovery from elbow surgery, but the 27-year-old might be worth a flier in deep mixed fantasy leagues. He owns a 3.70 career ERA and a 1.24 career WHIP in 576 1/3 major league innings. Erik Bedard is being shifted to the Tampa Bay bullpen.
Jul 7 - 8:38 AM

Rays manager Joe Maddon declared Friday that Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) was ready to rejoin the rotation, and is expected to do so on Tuesday.

That coincides with Erik Bedard's next scheduled outing, fueling speculation that the veteran southpaw will be the odd-man out in the rotation once Hellickson does return. Hellickson experienced discomfort in his elbow during his minor league rehab assignment, so fantasy owners should probably take a wait-and-see approach before trusting him in lineups.
Jul 5 - 8:27 AM

Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) is slated to make his next minor league rehab start on Thursday.

Hellickson was removed from his last start after just three innings due to renewed discomfort in his elbow, but he played catch Sunday and made it through a bullpen session Monday with no issues. Barring any further setbacks, he should be able to join the Rays' rotation after the All-Star break.
Jun 30 - 5:49 PM

Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Monday, and if all goes well he'll make another minor league rehab start at some point next week.

Hellickson was removed from his last start after just three innings due to renewed discomfort in his elbow, but he was able to play catch on Sunday without any difficulty. He's expected to rejoin the Rays rotation after the All-Star break.
Jun 29 - 10:23 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was removed from his minor league rehab start after three innings on Friday due to minor discomfort in his elbow.

Hellickson is working his way back from February elbow surgery, and has had a few hiccups along the way. He is expected to continue with his rehab schedule, but will need at least another start or two in the minors before he becomes an option to rejoin the Rays rotation.
Jun 27 - 10:28 PM

Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) will make at least one more rehab appearance at Triple-A Durham.

Hellickson was under consideration for a start in the Rays' doubleheader Friday against the Orioles, but that no longer seemed like a good idea after he allowed six runs (five earned) over five innings in his third rehab outing Sunday at Durham. The 27-year-old right-hander is on his way back from February elbow surgery and is not a particularly promising fantasy stash.
Jun 24 - 4:45 PM

Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) was hit hard in his third minor league rehab start for Triple-A Durham on Sunday, surrendering six runs (five earned) on eight hits in his five innings of work.

On the plus side, Hellickson did rack up seven strikeouts while throwing 57 of his 81 total pitches for strikes. With two consecutive rough outings, it's unclear if he'll rejoin the Rays rotation for next weekend's doubleheader, or make another minor league rehab appearance.
Jun 22 - 7:33 PM

Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) will make another rehab start with Triple-A Durham on Sunday.

Hellickson got touched up for seven runs -- four earned -- on 12 hits over just 2 2/3 innings in his last rehab outing, insuring that he'd make another start in the minors. It's possible he'll be up with the Rays next week if Sunday's outing goes well.
Jun 20 - 3:08 PM

Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) was lit up for seven runs -- four earned -- on 12 hits over just 2 2/3 innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Durham Tuesday.

Yikes. Hellickson has now given up 11 runs -- eight earned -- on 18 hits over his last five rehab innings. The Rays had left open the possibility of the righty rejoining the rotation after Tuesday's outing, but he'll almost surely make at least one more rehab start now.
Jun 17 - 9:11 PM

Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) allowed four runs on six hits over just 2 1/3 innings in his second rehab start with Triple-A Durham Thursday.

Hellickson got his pitch count up to 55. The right-hander is expected to make one more rehab start before rejoining the Rays rotation on June 27, though the club would no doubt like to see some better results first. He did toss three scoreless frames in his first rehab outing.
Jun 13 - 11:24 AM

Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) tossed three scoreless innings in his rehab debut Saturday with High-A Charlotte.

The plan, tentatively, is for Hellickson to make two more rehab starts and then rejoin the Rays' rotation on June 27 for a doubleheader against the Orioles. The 27-year-old right-hander is on his way back from February elbow surgery. He may be worth stashing in some deeper mixed fantasy leagues now that he's healthy and enjoying promising results in the minors.
