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.

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.

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.

Nationals released RHP Jeremy Hellickson; re-signed him to a minor league contract.

It's a paper move which allows the Nationals to avoid paying Hellickson a $100,000 retention bonus. The veteran right-hander only recently latched on with Washington and only threw four innings in the Grapefruit League, so he's going to need more time to get ramped up. A.J. Cole will begin the year as the fifth starter until Hellickson is deemed ready.

Jeremy Hellickson held the Marlins to one run in four innings while striking out four batters in Friday's Grapefruit League win.

It was his first game action since signing a minor league contract last week. He is battling A.J. Cole for the last spot in the Nationals' starting rotation. The veteran got off to a strong start with the Phillies last year but quickly fell back to Earth. He was traded to the Orioles at the deadline. He finished the season with a combined 8-11 record and a 5.43 ERA in 30 starts. His 5.27 K/9 was third-worst of all qualified starters.
Mar 23 - 10:43 PM

Nationals signed RHP Jeremy Hellickson to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The "buzz" Jerry Crasnick of ESPN heard about Hellickson with the Nationals turned into a signing about three minutes later in real time. The 30-year-old hurler was a disappointment in 2017 with a 5.43 ERA, but he registered a 3.71 ERA with the Phillies the year before, and at the very worst he should be a durable starter in the back of the rotation for Washington -- assuming he makes the club.

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports that he is hearing 'buzz' between RHP Jeremy Hellickson and the Nationals.

Hellickson is a name we haven't heard much about over the winter, as the 30-year-old starter struggled to a 5.43 ERA and struck out just 94 hitters in 164 innings for the Orioles and Phillies, respectively. Still, the Nationals have a need in the back of their rotation, and Hellickson was competent in his 2016 season with Philadelphia. This one makes a lot of sense on paper, anyway.
Mar 16 - 5:26 PM

Jeremy Hellickson has a sore back and may be shut down early.

Hellickson is scheduled to start Sunday's regular-season finale against the Rays, but it appears that might not happen. The 30-year-old impending free agent is sitting on an 8-11 record, 5.43 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 96/47 K/BB ratio through 164 innings this season.

Jeremy Hellickson yielded three earned runs over six innings Saturday in a loss to the Rays.

Hellickson struck four, walked one, and surrendered four hits -- including a Lucas Duda three-run shot in the top of the third inning. The 30-year-old impending free agent right-hander will carry an underwhelming 8-11 record and 5.43 ERA into his final start of the season next weekend in Tampa Bay.

Jeremy Hellickson coughed up six runs in three innings and was charged with a loss to the Yankees on Saturday.

He struck out three, walked four and surrendered only four hits -- but two of those were three-run jacks. Didi Gregorius and Greg Bird each hammered big bombs that quickly drove Hellickson from the game. He has a gruesome 7.29 ERA in nine starts since joining the Orioles. For the season he is 8-9 with a 5.47 ERA in 29 starts including his time with the Phillies.

Jeremy Hellickson pitched well in Sunday's loss to the Indians, allowing three runs on four hits over six innings of work.

Hellickson struck out one and didn't walk a batter in the ballgame. The Indians scratched out a run against him in the first inning, then tacked on solo shots from Roberto Perez and Francisco Lindor in the sixth. The veteran right-hander will bring his 5.23 ERA and 1.25 WHIP into Friday's start against the Yankees in New York.

Jeremy Hellickson lasted only 2 1/3 innings Tuesday versus the Yankees, allowing five runs – three earned – on two hits and four walks but escaping with a no-decision in the Orioles' 7-6 win.

Hellickson pitched around a couple walks in the second, but things fell apart in the third. He certainly wasn’t helped by Adam Jones dropping a routine flyball, but Hellickson was all over the place in this one with a hit by pitch in addition to the four free passes. Luckily for him, the O's offense rallied. Hellickson has been awful in four of his last five starts, but should the Orioles have expected anything different? He gets the Blue Jays in Toronto and the Yankees in New York next week. Yikes.

Jeremy Hellickson allowed seven hits and seven runs over 4 2/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Blue Jays.

If there's a silver lining, it's that Hellickson served up only one of Kendrys Morales' three homers on the night. The right-hander also walked four in the contest. It's the second time in three starts that Hellickson has allowed seven runs, and he's got a 6.55 ERA in six starts as a member of the Orioles. Things don't get much easier for the 30-year-old in the AL East, as he'll draw the Yankees in his next start Tuesday.
