The Phillies have named Jeremy Hellickson their Opening Day starter.
The announcement comes a day after Hellickson was torched for eight runs -- five earned -- over five innings against the Pirates, although the righty has historically struggled during spring training. Hellickson earned the nod after putting up a 3.71 ERA for the Phils last season, which earned him a $17.2 million qualifying offer (he accepted). Mar 19 - 11:08 AM

Jeremy Hellickson was pummeled for eight runs -- five earned -- in five innings of work in a loss to the Pirates on Saturday.

He gave up nine hits and a walk while fanning three. He is following through on his history of pitching poorly in the spring, now sitting on a 7.50 ERA after 18 innings. He was surprisingly effective in 32 starts for the Phillies last season, finishing with a solid 3.71 ERA and 154 strikeouts in 189 innings. His rotation slot is not in jeopardy despite the rough start.
Mar 18 - 5:16 PM

Jeremy Hellickson surrendered five runs in four innings Monday in a loss to the Orioles.

Hellickson has given up 10 runs and 17 hits in 13 innings this spring. He has a history of poor springs, so there's nothing very surprising about his slow start. He was better last March, though, finishing with a 3.31 ERA.
Mar 13 - 5:03 PM

Jeremy Hellickson yielded two runs in four innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Braves.

Hellickson has given up five runs over nine innings in his three starts this spring, but that's about par for the course for him; his career spring ERA stands at 5.47. He's expected to be the Phillies' Opening Day starter.
Mar 8 - 4:03 PM

Jeremy Hellickson has accepted the Phillies' one-year, $17.2 million qualifying offer.

He might be the only free agent to accept, though there's talk of Neil Walker doing the same. Hellickson probably could have found a multi-year offer on the open market, but he wasn't going to do better than $17.2 million in terms of AAV. He'll be a lynchpin for the Philadelphia rotation in 2017 after posting a sharp 3.71 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 154/45 K/BB ratio across 189 innings this past season.

FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Jeremy Hellickson is leaning toward declining the Phillies one-year, $17.2 million qualifying offer.

Should Hellickson turn down the qualifying offer, it would play against the conventional wisdom. The 29-year-old right-hander almost certainly will not be drawing $17.2 million annually on a long-term contract. Per Heyman, Hellickson's camp (should they turn this down) is hoping to take advantage of a relatively thin free agent market for starting pitchers. If Hellickson does turn down the QO and ends up signing with another team, the Phillies would receive compensation in the form of a draft pick. He will have until Monday to decide.

Phillies extended a one-year, $17.2 million qualifying offer to RHP Jeremy Hellickson.

The news was reported earlier Monday and is now official. There's a pretty decent chance Hellickson will accept the offer even in a thin starting pitching market, as he's surely not going to get a $17.2 million AAV on a long-term deal. If he rejects the offer and signs elsewhere, the Phillies will net a draft pick.

Jeremy Hellickson is getting the one-year, $17.2 million qualifying offer from the Phillies, per Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.

Hellickson said last month that he might accept the offer, though he should have no trouble finding a multi-year contract on the open market with so few high-level starting pitchers available. If he rejects the offer and does sign elsewhere, the Phillies will get a top draft pick as compensation. Hellickson, 29, registered a 3.71 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 154/45 K/BB ratio in 189 innings this past season.

Jeremy Hellickson said he'd be open to signing a qualifying offer with the Phillies this offseason.

Hellickson would obviously prefer a multi-year deal but he wouldn't rule out a qualifying offer if the Phillies extend one. If Hellickson rejects the Phillies' one-year, $16.7 million qualifying offer and signs with another team, the Phillies would receive a first-round pick as compensation. After a couple of lean years with Tampa Bay and Arizona, Hellickson has enjoyed a bounce-back season in Philadelphia, going 12-10 with a 3.71 ERA over 32 starts. The 29-year-old should attract plenty of interest this offseason.

Jeremy Hellickson was pulled from Thursday's game against the Braves due to a sprained right knee.

It's certainly good news that the injury appears to be minor and doesn't involve his arm at all. The 29-year-old finishes his 2016 campaign with a 12-10 record, 3.71 ERA and 154/45 K/BB ratio over 189 innings. He's positioned to secure a fairly lucrative multi-year contract in the off-season.

Jeremy Hellickson was forced to leave Thursday's start against in the fourth inning due to an apparent injury.

It's unclear exactly what occurred at this point, but the trainer came out to check on the veteran right-hander mid at-bat in the fourth inning and the decision was made to pull him out. It's a potentially devastating development for Hellickson, who has had a nice bounceback season in 2016 and is headed for free agency this winter. Expect an update from the Phillies on his status shortly.

Jeremy Hellickson was tagged for six runs in 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Mets on Friday.

Hellickson limited the Mets to one run over the first four innings before he came unglued in the fifth inning. After walking the bases loaded, he gave up a pair of RBI singles before being pulled. He was charged with two more runs after Michael Conforto slugged a three-run blast off Frank Herrmann. The impending free agent has been rocked to the tune of a 7.77 ERA in five starts against the Mets this season, but still holds a solid 3.78 ERA on the year. He’ll finish the year with a start against the Braves on the road next week.

Jeremy Hellickson twirled a three-hit shutout in the Phillies' 8-0 win over the Marlins on Saturday.

Hellickson dominated Marlins hitters, yielding two singles and a double without issuing a walk and striking out five. After seeing his ERA rise to 3.90 earlier this month, Hellickson has tossed 15 1/3 innings without allowing an earned run to lower it to 3.57. The win improved the 29-year-old to 12-9 in 30 starts, a feat considering the club he's pitched for all year. The right-hander will try to continue his dominant stretch when he faces the Mets on Friday.

Jeremy Hellickson allowed only an unearned run over 6 1/3 innings in Monday’s win over the Pirates.

Hellickson had a run score in the first inning on a fielder’s choice, but he held the Phillies off the board the rest of the way. He gave up just three hits in all while walking three and striking out six. The impending free agent now sits at 11-9 with a 3.76 ERA and 144/42 K/BB ratio over 172 1/3 innings. He’ll get the Marlins in his next start this weekend at home.

Jeremy Hellickson took a loss on Wednesday against the Marlins, giving up four runs -- three earned -- over six innings.

Yes it was technically a quality start but Hellickson wasn't very impressive tonight. He gave up nine hits and managed only one strikeout. After three consecutive poor seasons, Hellickson has bounced back to fantasy relevancy this year. His record falls to 10-9 with a 3.90 ERA. He has 138 strikeouts in 166 innings.
