Jeremy Hellickson allowed eight hits and three runs over 4 1/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Royals.
Hellickson walked one and struck out three in the start. It was the continuation of a rough spring for Hellickson, who now owns a 6.00 Cactus League ERA. Even with his struggles, the right-hander has been assured a spot in the Diamondbacks' rotation when the season opens in April. Mar 28 - 8:15 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was scratched from a scheduled start in a minor league game Thursday because he's going through a "dead arm" phase.

It appears that Hellickson will be fine, though, as he threw a bullpen session instead Thursday and is scheduled to start a Cactus League game on Saturday. "He got some treatment a couple of days after his last start and in his bullpen he was a little dead," Diamondbacks pitching coach Mike Harkey said. "It was a perfect time to do it now in March than do it in April." Hellickson has a 5.87 ERA over three starts this spring.

Jeremy Hellickson held the Rockies to two runs over four innings in Wednesday's Cactus League matchup.

Hellickson yielded four hits and a walk while striking out four. The right-hander has struggled this spring in his first camp with the Diamondbacks. Even with his struggles, Hellickson is a near lock for the starting rotation on a shallow pitching staff.

Jeremy Hellickson was hit hard in a losing effort against the Indians in Cactus League play on Friday, surrendering three runs on seven hits in just 1 2/3 innings of work.

Hellickson also issued a pair of walks while striking out two in the brief outing. Light-hitting Michael Bourn and Jose Ramirez each tagged him for solo home runs in the second inning to provide the bulk of the damage. While he's assured of a spot in the Diamondbacks rotation to begin the season, he's a risky fantasy proposition at best.
Mar 13 - 7:43 PM

Jeremy Hellickson cut a pitching session short Saturday with a cramp in his right rib cage area.

"I feel fine. It's more of a cramp than anything. It was a precautionary thing to shut it down," Hellickson said. "It doesn't even hurt right now. We did a bunch of tests and nothing bothered it. We'll just treat it a little bit and I'll be fine tomorrow." It doesn't appear to be anything worrisome, but he'll be re-evaluated Sunday.

Diamondbacks and RHP Jeremy Hellickson avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.275 million contract.

One of the reasons the Rays traded Hellickson is because his price tag was set to rise in arbitration, and he winds up getting significantly more than the $3.9 million projected him to earn. Hellickson will be a significant part of a re-tooled Arizona rotation in 2015.
Jan 16 - 9:35 AM

Diamondbacks acquired RHP Jeremy Hellickson from the Rays for OF Justin Williams and SS Andrew Velazquez.

The former American League Rookie of the Year has struggled with injuries and poor performance in recent years, but should benefit from the move to the Senior Circuit. He's a flyball pitcher with the propensity to serve up the long ball though, which could be a major problem at Chase Field. He's unlikely to generate much mixed league fantasy value, but could be a solid source of innings in NL-only formats.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Diamondbacks have acquired Jeremy Hellickson from the Rays.

Cotillo reports that outfielder Justin Williams will head to the Rays as part of the deal. The 27-year-old will surely benefit from a move to the National League West, but with low strikeout totals isn't likely to become mixed league relevant.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Diamondbacks have expressed interest in trading for Rays right-hander Jeremy Hellickson.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported Monday morning that the Rays are likely to move Hellickson to a National League team at some point during this week's GM Meetings in Arizona. Hellickson had an ugly 4.52 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 63 2/3 innings this past season for Tampa Bay, but the 27-year-old former American League Rookie of the Year would make for a decent reclamation project for just about any NL club.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Rays are close to trading Jeremy Hellickson to a National League team.

Sherman says the trade will "likely" be finalized this week. Hellickson won Rookie of the Year honors in 2011 and had another excellent season in 2012, but he's battled injuries and ineffectiveness in the years since. The 27-year-old right-hander may do better with a change of scenery (and a move to the more pitcher-friendly league).

Jeremy Hellickson allowed six runs (five earned) in 2 1/3 innings as the Rays were hammered in an 11-1 loss to the Red Sox on Thursday.

The Red Sox were all over Hellickson from the beginning. The right-hander yielded eight hits while striking out two and walking none. It's hard to ding him too harshly for mediocre numbers, as he missed the first three months of the season after undergoing elbow surgery in January. Hellickson wraps up his 2014 season with a 4.52 ERA, a 1.45 WHIP, and a 54/21 K/BB ratio.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that Jeremy Hellickson's name "has been surfacing" as teams "start putting together lists of pitchers who could be had in trade this offseason."

The Rays still have pitching depth even after dealing David Price, so it's possible they could trade Hellickson or someone else in order to add offense. The right-hander has been up-and-down in 12 post-Tommy John surgery starts, but he's under team control through 2016 and posted a 3.06 ERA over his first two-and-a-half big league seasons.

Jeremy Hellickson struggled in a losing effort against the White Sox on Friday, surrendering four runs on seven hits in just 4 2/3 innings of work.

Hellickson walked two and struck out one on the night. He cruised through the first four innings unscathed, but the White Sox strung together five hits and a walk to scratch out all four runs before chasing Hellickson in the fifth. He'll head into his final start of the 2014 campaign (against the Red Sox in Boston on Thursday) with a 1-4 record, 3.96 ERA and 1.37 WHIP.

Jeremy Hellickson pitched well but settled for a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Saturday after allowing two runs (three earned) on four hits over his six frames.

Hellickson punched out eight hitters on the afternoon while walking four. All three runs against him came across in the third inning, one of them unearned due to a throwing error. The right-hander will carry a 1-3 record, 3.63 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 51/19 K/BB ratio into Friday's start against the White Sox.

Jeremy Hellickson limited the Orioles to two runs over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision Sunday.

Hellickson was going strong until the sixth inning, when a David Lough single preceded a Nelson Cruz home run for the Orioles' only two runs in the game. The hits were two of the four Hellickson surrendered on the day, walking two. The right-hander struck out six and left with the lead before the bullpen blew his win. Hellickson will continue to look for his second win Saturday at the Blue Jays.
