Jeremy Hellickson surrendered two runs on four hits over five innings in Sunday's win over the Brewers.
Outside of a two-run homer by Brett Phillips in the fifth inning, Hellickson kept the scoreboard clean. He struck out six and walked one on the afternoon. The 30-year-old right-hander has pitched to a 4.44 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 19 outings this season. He will carry those numbers into a home start against these same Brewers next time he toes the rubber.

Jeremy Hellickson allowed three runs over six innings in a no-decision Thursday against the Pirates.

Hellickson allowed all three runs on a pair of homers in the fourth, a two-run shot by Josh Bell and a solo homer by Gregory Polanco, but he was otherwise terrific. The right-hander gave up just five hits without walking a batter and striking out four in all. The quality start was his third in his last four outings, leaving him at 5-5 with a 4.49 ERA as he hits the break. Hellickson has much less appeal than he did at this time a year ago, but as a pending free agent he could still find himself the subject of trade rumors over the course of this month.
Jul 6 - 10:31 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was charged with four runs in 6 1/3 innings against the Mets on Saturday.

He gave up seven hits, including solo home runs by Lucas Duda and T.J. Rivera. He issued two walks, struck out four batters and didn't factor into the decision. His record holds at 5-5 with a 4.48 ERA and 1.27 WHIP. He has managed only 49 strikeouts in 96 1/3 innings. Among qualified starters, only Ty Blach has a lower K/9 than Hellickson's 4.29 strikeouts per nine innings.
Jul 1 - 9:20 PM

Jeremy Hellickson surrendered just one run on three hits over six innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's 11-inning loss to the Diamondbacks.

In terms of runs, Hellickson allowed just a Paul Goldschmidt RBI single in the fourth inning. That had him on the hook to take a tough-luck loss, but the Phillies managed to tie the game at 1-1 in the seventh to make it a bullpen game. Hellickson struck out seven without walking a batter in the crisp outing. Next up on the docket, a road start against the Mets. The veteran right-hander will carry a 4.40 ERA and 1.26 WHIP into that affair.

Jeremy Hellickson held the Cardinals to one run over seven innings in a no-decision Tuesday.

It's the first time Hellickson has completed seven innings since April 21. He was 3-0 with a 1.88 ERA at that point, but he's 5-5 with a 4.61 ERA now. Hellickson will face the Pirates next time out.
Jun 20 - 10:53 PM

Jeremy Hellickson surrendered six runs and nine hits in five-plus innings Wednesday against the Red Sox.

After starting off 5-1 with a 3.44 ERA, Hellickson is 0-4 with a 7.57 ERA in his last five starts. It doesn't bode well for the Phillies' chances of getting a quality prospect for him at the trade deadline. The Red Sox are one of the teams that could be in the market for a starter, but they didn't see much good from Hellickson tonight.
Jun 14 - 11:54 PM

Jeremy Hellickson wasn't at his best on Sunday, giving up five runs (three earned) on four hits over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Giants.

Hellickson walked four and struck out four in the ballgame. He was chased from the game after allowing a two-run homer to Brandon Crawford in the sixth. Even with the uneven performance though, he left in line for the victory but the Phillies' bullpen was unable to protect it for him. The right-hander will carry a 4.50 ERA and 1.20 WHIP into Friday's start against the Cardinals in St. Louis.
Jun 4 - 6:05 PM

Jeremy Hellickson surrendered four runs in six innings Monday in a loss to the Marlins.

Hellickson's horrible strikeout rate didn't hurt him in the early going, but it's taking a serious toll now; he ends May 1-3 with a 7.04 ERA after going 4-0 with a 1.80 ERA in April. We wouldn't expect a big rebound.
May 29 - 11:56 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was shredded for seven runs in five innings in a loss to the Rockies on Wednesday.

He can't use Coors Field as an excuse either since this game was played in Philadelphia. He actually tossed four scoreless frames interrupted by a seven-run outburst in the third inning. He walked two batters in that inning and gave up six hits, including a three-run bomb by Carlos Gonzalez. Hellickson gave up a total of eight hits and four free passes while notching only two strikeouts in the contest. He had been having a strong season, entering the day with a 5-1 record and 3.44 ERA despite his 3.62 K/9 being the worst in the league by a wide margin. He falls to 5-2 with a 4.28 ERA after 10 starts.
May 24 - 11:43 PM

Jeremy Hellickson said Friday that he is dealing with tightness in his back but still expects to be able to make his next start.

The right-hander was pulled from Friday's game after he smashed an RBI double in the seventh inning but appeared to tweak something on a swing. It's encouraging that he believes the injury to be minor and should be able to avoid the trip to the disabled list.
May 19 - 11:02 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was forced to leave Friday's game against the Pirates with an apparent injury.

Hellickson had fired six strong innings, allowing just two runs (one earned) on two hits before departing. He remained in the game to hit in the top half of the seventh and slashed a double to left field, but appeared to tweak his side during his swing and was eventually lifted. Look for an update from the Phillies on his status after the game.
May 19 - 9:30 PM

Jeremy Hellickson took a no-decision after allowing three earned runs over five innings Sunday versus the Nationals.

Philly won the game with a big rally off Nationals closer Shawn Kelley in the top of the ninth inning. Hellickson was long gone by then, after yielding six hits -- including two home runs -- over his five frames. The right-hander will carry a 3.71 ERA into his next start on the road versus the Pirates.
May 14 - 4:49 PM

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports the Phillies will "listen" on offers for Jeremy Hellickson.

With Hellickson headed for free agency after this season, the rebuilding Phillies would likely jump at the chance to trade him if the right offer came along. Per Cafardo, the Phillies are targeting prospects to beef up their farm system. Hellickson has registered a respectable 3.49 ERA this year, but it's come with a mediocre 3.96 K/9.

Jeremy Hellickson struggled in Sunday's no-decision against the Nationals, allowing three runs on five hits over 4 2/3 innings.

The veteran right-hander walked three and struck out four on the afternoon. He needed 98 pitches to record 14 outs in this one, failing to make it out of the fifth inning. Jayson Werth was single-handedly responsible for the offense against him, with a solo homer in the first and two-run shot in the fifth. Even with this rough outing, Hellickson sits at 4-1 on the year with a 3.49 ERA and 1.09 WHIP. He'll get a chance to rectify this start when he battles these same Nationals in Washington on Sunday.
May 7 - 6:33 PM

Jeremy Hellickson gave up three homers and six runs in four innings Tuesday in a loss to the Cubs.

Hellickson was due for a clunker after somehow allowing just two homers in 30 innings coming into this one. The loss was his first in six starts this season.
