Jeremy Hellickson struck out seven and allowed three runs over seven innings in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.
The Tigers struck with a run in the first, but Hellickson settled in for a while before coughing up a couple more tallies in the sixth. It was a good showing in what was a tough matchup, but he was easily out-distanced by Justin Verlander. The Phillies' righty will carry a 3.97 ERA into next week's start versus the Nationals.

Jeremy Hellickson limited the Marlins to two runs over six innings Wednesday for his fourth win.

Hellickson gave up two runs in the top of the first inning but settled in from there, yielding only five total hits and issuing just one walk over his six solid frames. He struck out four. Hellickson, 29, now stands 4-2 with a 3.99 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 50/13 K/BB ratio in 49 2/3 innings this season for the surprising Phils. He will take on the Tigers next in a road start at Comerica Park.
May 18 - 3:45 PM

Jeremy Hellickson allowed two unearned runs over seven innings in a 3-2 win over the Reds on Friday.

Hellickson held the Reds to just four hits while walking just one batter and striking out nine. He amassed a total of 18 swinging strikes on the night, most of them with his changeup. If the impressive start wasn’t enough, he also drove in the go-ahead run in the fourth inning with a squeeze bunt. The former AL Rookie of the Year Award winner owns a 4.12 ERA and 46/12 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings over his first eight starts this season. The strikeouts are a big surprise. He averaged 6.7 K/9 for his career coming into this season.
May 13 - 10:36 PM

Jeremy Hellickson earned a no-decision against the Marlins on Saturday, yielding three runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Hellickson has been in a giving mood of late, surrendering five home runs in his last two starts. On Saturday, it was Marcell Ozuna and Justin Bour who dented the scoreboard with taters. Through seven starts, the 29-year-old right-hander holds a limp 4.91 ERA and 1.39 WHIP. A home start against the Reds shows next on his schedule.
May 7 - 10:42 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was bitten by the longball Monday, serving up three homers and six runs in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Cardinals.

Hellickson cruised through the first three innings, but he's long been homer-prone and he served up dingers to Adam Wainwright, Matt Adams and Aledmys Diaz in the middle innings. The veteran right-hander has mixed in some nice outings this season, including seven shutout frames against the Nationals his last time out, but he's also had three subpar showings to push his ERA up to 4.88. He'll try to bounce back this weekend in Miami.
May 2 - 11:50 PM

Jeremy Hellickson tossed seven scoreless innings on Wednesday to pick up his second win, allowing two hits and striking out eight Nationals.

Hellickson still has home-run issues that will plague his fantasy potential; however, he’s been a pleasant surprise in many ways. He has struck out 28 batters in just 26 innings. His ERA is now a palatable 3.81, which is paired with a 3.75 FIP. And his changeup/curveball combination has been a dynamic way to compensate for his continued velocity decline. The right-hander is next scheduled to square off against the Cardinals at Busch Stadium.
Apr 27 - 10:31 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was knocked around on Wednesday against the Mets, surrendering four runs on 10 hits and two homers in just 4 1/3 innings.

Hellickson has actually missed a fair amount of bats this year, striking out six on Wednesday and increasing his strikeout rate to 9.47 per nine innings. It just hasn’t been pretty when opposing hitters have put the ball in play or, more accurately, over the fence. The right-hander has given up four homers in just 19 innings, a problem that has plagued him throughout his big-league career. On a poor ballclub and with a tendency to get shelled, like on Wednesday against the Mets, Hellickson doesn’t have much appeal in any fantasy format.
Apr 20 - 11:43 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was tagged with six runs (five earned) over just three innings Friday against the Nationals.

It was his shortest outing since August 11, 2013. Five runs scored in the first inning, which was more than the Phillies gave up during their entire series against the Padres. Of course, the Nationals are not the Padres. The former AL Rookie of the Year Award winner was impressive over his first two starts, but we’re not buying from a fantasy perspective. He’ll try to rebound next week against the Mets.
Apr 15 - 10:51 PM

Jeremy Hellickson yielded just two runs on three hits over 5 2/3 innings in Sunday's win over the Mets.

Hellickson struck out five and walked one. He cruised through five innings, but ran into trouble with two outs in the sixth inning. David Wright dinged him for a double at that point. The double was followed by a wild pitch to move Wright to third. Yoenis Cespedes promptly swatted a two-run homer to end Hellickson's afternoon. That makes two serviceable starts in a row for the 29-year-old right-hander, as he did not allow an earned run to the Reds in his Opening Day start. He is scheduled to tango with the Nationals in a home start next time he toes the rubber.
Apr 10 - 4:11 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was excellent on Opening Day against the Reds on Monday, allowing just an unearned run over six innings.

He deserved better, as the Phillies’ bullpen ultimately blew his chance at a win in the eighth inning. Hellickson gave up just three hits total (all by Zack Cozart), with the lone run scoring on an error from Ryan Howard. He walked none and struck out six, including three whiffs of Joey Votto. Hellickson is just the ninth pitcher to strike out Votto three times in a game. The soon-to-be 29-year-old owns a 4.86 ERA over the last three seasons, so we’re not particularly high on him in fantasy leagues, but a nice first half could make him an interesting trade chip for rebuilding Philadelphia.
Apr 4 - 7:51 PM

Jeremy Hellickson will start Opening Day against the Reds on April 4.

That was expectation already, but it's now official. Hellickson was acquired from the Diamondbacks over the winter after posting a 4.62 ERA and 121/43 K/BB ratio over 146 innings last season. While he's getting the nod on Opening Day, Aaron Nola, Jerad Eickhoff, and Vincent Velasquez are more interesting options in this rotation in fantasy leagues. Nola and Charlie Morton will follow Hellickson in the rotation, which lines up Nola to start the home opener on April 11.
Mar 23 - 1:28 PM

Jeremy Hellickson is expected to start on Opening Day for the Phillies.

While manager Pete Mackanin has yet to make an official announcement, Hellickson is currently in line to get the Opening Day nod against the Reds on April 4. Aaron Nola is currently slated to work behind him in the second game of the regular season.
Mar 20 - 5:16 PM

Jeremy Hellickson blanked the Astros for five innings and struck out six on Sunday.

Hellickson didn't even all a hit, though he did walk three. He was making his first start since Sept. 4 after dealing with the flu and getting some side work in.
Mar 20 - 5:09 PM

Jeremy Hellickson (flu) was scratched from Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles.

He has the flu. Alec Asher will step in and get the start. Hellickson scattered two hits and one run over two innings last week in his spring debut against Atlanta. The former AL Rookie of the Year went just 9-12 last season while sporting an ugly 4.62 ERA.
Mar 9 - 9:40 AM

Jeremy Hellickson fanned five while allowing one run in two innings Friday against the Braves.

If Hellickson is the Phillies' best starter, it's likely to be another very long year. Still, it would make sense to give him the Opening Day nod over the team's younger pitchers. And he might not be that bad anyway. It's just going to be hard for him to do much better than last year's 4.62 ERA while pitching in a home run ballpark in front of an unexceptional defense.
