Phillies acquired RHP Jeremy Hellickson from the Diamondbacks for RHP Sam McWilliams.
Hellickson will immediately jump near the top of a very young and inexperienced Phillies' rotation. While he has struggled the past few seasons, Hellickson owns a career 3.94 ERA and 1.27 WHIP across 786 innings. His fantasy prospects see a small bump with the move away from Chase Field, but he remains nothing more than a streaming option in most mixed fantasy leagues. Nov 14 - 3:30 PM

Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports that the Phillies are working on a trade to acquire Jeremy Hellickson from the Diamondbacks.

No word yet on what the Diamondbacks would receive in a potential return package. Given the depth of the Phillies struggles in the starting rotation, adding a stable veteran arm like Hellickson seems like a smart, low-risk gamble. The 28-year-old posted a 4.62 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 121/43 K/BB ratio over 146 innings with the D'Backs in 2015.

Jeremy Hellickson turned in a suitable start in Sunday's loss to the Giants, allowing two runs on three hits over five innings.

Hellickson struck out five and walked two on the afternoon. Both runs against him scored in the sixth inning, when Alejandro De Aza notched an RBI double. De Aza would subsequently score on a three-run homer by Buster Posey after Hellickson was relieved of duty mid-inning. The 28-year-old right-hander will carry a 4.73 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 113/41 K/BB ratio (over 130 innings) into his next start, a road duel with the Padres.
Sep 20 - 7:04 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was routed for five runs (three earned) in one inning, losing Monday's start to the Padres.

Hellickson allowed a leadoff home run to Wil Myers, walked the next two batters, saw the bases loaded following Jake Lamb's fielding errors, then gave up two more singles and two stolen bases as four more runners crossed the plate. All told, he gave up three hits and a pair of walks while striking out one. He'll try to bounce back next week in San Francisco against the Giants. Hellickson has a 4.78 ERA with a 1.35 WHIP and a 108/39 K/BB ratio in 130 innings.
Sep 15 - 1:23 AM

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

Hellickson allowed three runs over six innings in a rehab start on Sunday. He'll rejoin the Diamondbacks' rotation soon on Monday versus the Padres.
Sep 11 - 4:52 PM

Jeremy Hellickson (hamstring) will make a rehab start with Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

He should then be ready to rejoin the Diamondbacks' rotation next week. Hellickson has been on the shelf for the last three weeks with a strained left hamstring.
Sep 6 - 9:27 AM

Jeremy Hellickson (hamstring) will need more than a minimum stay on the disabled list.

Hellickson is eligible to return from his hamstring injury on Wednesday, but he's yet to resume throwing. It's sounding like he might be a couple weeks away from rejoining the D'Backs rotation.
Aug 30 - 8:46 AM

Diamondbacks placed RHP Jeremy Hellickson on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

Hellickson suffered the injury Monday in his start against the Pirates, leaving after 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball. He is probably going to miss around three weeks of action. Randall Delgado will take the hill in his place this Saturday against the Reds.
Aug 20 - 2:59 PM

Jeremy Hellickson (glute) is expected to be fine for his next start.

Hellickson had to leave Monday's outing after dehydration led to some cramping in his glute. He received IV fluids after the game and is expected to be fine going forward.
Aug 19 - 8:50 AM

Jeremy Hellickson left Monday's start against the Pirates with tightness in his glute muscle.

It looks like his removal was precautionary, as Hellickson was a little dehydrated after being under the weather Sunday. He should be fine for his next outing later this week. Hellickson held the Pirates to one run over 5 1/3 innings before exiting.
Aug 17 - 10:06 PM

Jeremy Hellickson allowed only an unearned run over eight innings in a win over the Phillies on Tuesday.

Hellickson scattered seven hits without walking a batter in the outing, with an error accounting for the only Phillies run. The right-hander struck out six in the start. He'll sprinkle in a good outing every two or three starts, but Hellickson remains 8-8 with a 4.73 ERA overall. Hellickson will square off with the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Monday.
Aug 12 - 1:53 AM

Jeremy Hellickson was absolutely rocked in Saturday's loss to the Astros, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings.

Many, many things went wrong in this outing for Hellickson, but the proceedings didn't officially burst into flame until the fourth inning. Following a Nick Ahmed fielding error to put runners on first and third, Hellickson proceeded to plunk Colby Rasmus and walk Chris Carter to push across the first run of the inning. The other four runs didn't take much time to develop, as Hank Conger followed the Carter walk with a grand slam. Two more hits followed to drive the Snakes' starter from the contest. Hellickson had pitched very well over his last four starts, but when the dust settled from Saturday's disaster, he held a 4.95 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. He continues to hold value in deeper NL-only formats, but that value's limited at this point and could disappear altogether if he turns in another start of this variety.
Aug 1 - 11:01 PM

Jeremy Hellickson pitched well in Sunday's win over the Brewers, tossing six innings of shutout ball.

Hellickson scattered four hits while striking out six and walking three in the contest. While he holds a mediocre 4.60 ERA and 1.32 WHIP this season, he's quietly settled into a nice little groove over his last four starts, allowing five runs in 24 innings over that span. For the time being, he's worthy of rostering in deeper NL-only formats, though we would remind potential owners that Hellickson is far from a lock to pitch like this on a regular basis. Exercise informed caution.
Jul 26 - 8:03 PM

Jeremy Hellickson pitched well in a losing effort against the Marlins on Tuesday, allowing only two runs in seven innings.

The D'Backs didn't provide him any run support, so his terrific effort went to waste. The right-hander gave up five hits while walking none and striking out six. It marked only the second time this season he completed seven innings in a start. Hellickson hasn't had good results overall this season, carrying 4.87 ERA with a 1.33 WHIP and 86/27 K/BB ratio over 101 2/3 innings. He'll finish out a homestand against the Brewers next.
Jul 22 - 12:38 AM

Jeremy Hellickson (blister) will pitch the fifth game after the All-Star break for the Diamondbacks.

Hellickson threw a bullpen session on Sunday and the blister on his right thumb was apparently still a bit of an issue. He'll have gone 12 days in between starts after being pushed back, which should give the blister time to heal.
