Nationals placed RHP Jeremy Hellickson on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 3, with a right hamstring strain.
Hellickson was lifted from his start on Sunday after suffering the hamstring injury while attempting to cover first base. He'll be eligible for activation on June 13, but don't be surprised if he misses more than the minimum time and returns sometime closer to late June. The 31-year-old right-hander holds a strong 2.28 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, and 34/6 K/BB ratio through 43 1/3 innings (nine starts) this season with Washington. Jun 5 - 4:25 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was lifted from Sunday's start versus the Braves after just one batter with a right hamstring injury.

Hellickson tweaked the hamstring while running over to cover first base. It certainly looked like something that could send him to the disabled list, but the Nationals should have more on the veteran right-hander's status after the game.

Jeremy Hellickson yielded just two runs over five innings Tuesday in the Nationals' 3-2 victory in Baltimore.

Hellickson permitted six hits – including a solo home run to Manny Machado – and struck out three. He didn’t walk any batters but hit a pair. Hellickson had thrown just 81 pitches through his five frames but was pulled rather than face the heart of the O’s order a third time (it's worth noting that he dealt with a blister in his last start). He has pitched six innings just once in eight starts for the Nats but has been very good with a 2.30 ERA and 0.93 WHIP. Hellickson faces the Braves in Atlanta on Sunday.

Jeremy Hellickson left his start Tuesday night against the Padres due to a blister on his right hand.

It doesn't sound like a serious concern, though it's possible Hellickson's next turn will be pushed back a few days. The 31-year-old right-hander tossed 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball before departing and he now boasts a 2.13 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and 31/6 K/BB ratio in 38 total innings (seven starts) this season for the Nationals.

Jeremy Hellickson exited his start Tuesday night against the Padres with an apparent hand injury.

It looked to be a blister. Hellickson had worked 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball versus the Padres, with five strikeouts and just one walk. The 31-year-old right-hander owns an impressive 2.13 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and 31/6 K/BB ratio in 38 total innings (seven starts) this season for Washington.
May 22 - 8:57 PM

Jeremy Hellickson pitched well in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Sunday, surrendering just one run on three hits over his five frames.

The veteran right-hander punched out five on the evening and issued just one base on balls. The only blemish on his night came on an RBI triple by David Peralta in the third inning. He has been brilliant in his first six starts with the Nationals, compiling a 2.20 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 26/5 K/BB ratio across 32 2/3 innings. While he's difficult to trust long-term, he's worth utilizing in mixed leagues while he's pitching well.
May 13 - 11:29 PM

Jeremy Hellickson allowed two hits with no walks over 6 2/3 scoreless innings in a victory in San Diego on Tuesday.

Hellickson also struck out eight batters in the 91-pitch quality start and he carried a perfect game into the seventh inning before running out of gas. The Padres are having difficulty putting a bat on the ball lately, as this was the same team who had been no-hit over the weekend in Mexico by the Dodgers. Hell Boy will take the mound for his second start of the week in Arizona on Sunday night.
May 9 - 4:01 AM

Jeremy Hellickson blanked the Pirates for 5 2/3 innings in the Nationals' 3-1 victory Thursday.

Unfortunately, Hellickson didn't get the win; he was pulled in the sixth after just 61 pitches and the Nationals didn't score their runs until the bottom of the inning. Hellickson has a 3.00 ERA in four starts for the Nationals. Mixed leagues might want to consider him as a streaming option for his starts in San Diego and Arizona next week.
May 3 - 4:30 PM

Jeremy Hellickson held the Diamondbacks to two runs over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision Saturday.

Hellickson allowed five hits and a walk in his 5 1/3 innings, also striking out one. Two of the five hits were homers. A late rally by the Diamondbacks denied Hellickson his first win of the year, however, leaving him without a decision in three starts. He's posted a 4.11 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in those three outings. He'll continue searching for that first win Thursday against the Pirates.
Apr 28 - 7:36 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was handed his first loss of the season on Sunday, allowing three runs on three hits over 5 1/3 innings against the Dodgers.

Hellickson allowed a double to Corey Seager in the first inning, then kept the Dodgers at bay until the sixth, at one point retiring 14 consecutive hitters. The Dodgers finally broke through in the sixth, using three doubles to score three times and chase Hellickson from the game. He'll carry a 4.50 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into Saturday's matchup against the Diamondbacks.
Apr 22 - 11:29 PM

Jeremy Hellickson allowed two earned runs over 4 2/3 innings Monday in a no-decision versus the Mets.

It was the regular-season debut for Hellickson, who signed a minor league contract with the Nationals in mid-March. He gave up seven hits and a walk, but he also struck out three and Washington eventually won the game 8-6 after a six-run eighth inning. The 31-year-old right-hander will try to work a little deeper in his next start against the Dodgers. He's not a recommended fantasy option at the moment.
Apr 16 - 10:53 PM

Nationals purchased the contract of RHP Jeremy Hellickson from Triple-A Syracuse.

Hellickson will make his Nats debut on Monday versus the Mets, bumping A.J. Cole from the rotation. The veteran right-hander put up a 5.43 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 96/47 K/BB ratio over 164 innings last season between the Phillies and Orioles and cannot be trusted in fantasy leagues.
Apr 16 - 4:18 PM

Jeremy Hellickson will indeed make his Nationals' debut on Monday against the Mets.

He'll be taking the spot of A.J. Cole in the Nationals' rotation. The Nationals will wait to announce the corresponding roster move until Monday, but it could be Cole heading down to Triple-A.
Apr 15 - 5:41 PM

Jeremy Hellickson could make his Nationals debut on Monday against the Mets.

It's A.J. Cole's turn, but the Nats are now listing Monday's starter as TBA. Cole was much better in his second start after a disastrous season debut, but this move doesn't come as a surprise. Hellickson held a 5.43 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 96/47 K/BB ratio over 164 innings last season between the Phillies and Orioles.
Apr 15 - 10:35 AM

Jeremy Hellickson threw 92 pitches over six innings in a start in West Palm Beach on Monday.

He'll make another minor league start on Saturday and then could be an option for the Nationals' rotation after that. A.J. Cole, who opened the year as the Nats' fifth starter, got pounded for 10 earned runs over just 3 2/3 innings Tuesday in an ugly loss to the Braves. Hellickson signed a minor league contract with Washington in mid-March after going 8-11 with a 5.43 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 96/47 K/BB ratio over 164 innings last season between the Phillies and Orioles.
