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. Mon, Nov 14, 2016 02:13:00 PM

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.

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.

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.

His ERA now sits at 3.88 for the year, which is the highest it's been since mid-July. His next turn will come against the Marlins next week.

That means he's staying put for the remainder of the season. Hellickson has put up a nice bounce-back since in Philly, posting a 3.80 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over 26 starts. The Phillies plan to extend the impending free agent a qualifying offer this offseason.

Jeremy Hellickson struck out eight while allowing two runs over seven innings in a win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

Hellickson gave up seven hits and a walk, with a Jeremy Hazelbaker two-run homer doing the only damage against him on the night. He certainly didn't show any ill effects from the back tightness that forced him from his last outing. The win was Hellickson's fourth in a row, moving him to 10-7 through 25 starts. The right-hander will carry a 3.60 ERA and 1.14 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Mets.
