Jeremy Hellickson yielded three runs over 5 1/3 innings Saturday in the Diamondbacks' loss to the Dodgers.
Hellickson struck out six Los Angeles batters and walked just one, but the Dodgers tagged him for six hits -- including a Justin Turner home run and doubles from Adrian Gonzalez and Yasmani Grandal. Hellickson escaped with a no-decision, but he's 1-3 with a rough 5.20 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in 27 2/3 innings this season. The 28-year-old right-hander doesn't have much fantasy promise at this point.

Jeremy Hellickson struggled in a losing effort against the Pirates on Sunday, surrendering four runs on seven hits in his 4 1/3 innings of work.

Hellickson did manage to rack up six strikeouts on the afternoon while issuing a pair of free passes. The Pirates struck for two in the first on a two-run single by Pedro Alvarez and added a pair on the fifth on a Neil Walker double. Hellickson has had a rough time in the D'Backs rotation thus far, registering a 5.24 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 16/8 K/BB ratio over his 22 1/3 innings. He'll look to turn things around on Saturday when he takes on the Dodgers in Los Angeles.
Apr 26 - 7:33 PM

Jeremy Hellickson picked up his first win of the season, allowing just two runs in 6 1/3 innings against the Giants on Sunday.

This was Hellickson's best start of the season. Angel Pagan got things off to a decent start for the Giants with a first inning sacrifice fly, but the team wouldn't be able to plate another run against the former AL Rookie of the Year. Hellickson scattered eight hits with two strikeouts and one walk in his 6 1/3 innings of work. Despite the fine effort, Hellickson offers little fantasy value.
Apr 19 - 7:31 PM

Jeremy Hellickson fell to 0-2 after yielding five runs in 6 2/3 innings against the Padres on Tuesday.

Hellickson was behind the eight ball early, allowing three runs in the first inning. He was able to settle down for the most part after that. The right-hander allowed seven hits, walked three, and struck out six. He also had poor results in his season debut last Wednesday. The former AL Rookie of the Year hasn't put up good numbers since 2012 and doesn't have much fantasy impact anymore. He'll face the Giants in San Francisco next.
Apr 15 - 12:45 AM

Jeremy Hellickson yielded three runs on nine hits in 4 1/3 innings during Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

Hellickson made the start on his 28th birthday, so we'll try to be nice. While the right-hander kept the damage relatively limited (nice), he had already thrown 91 pitches by the time he was pulled with one out in the fifth inning. Nori Aoki and Matt Duffy hit back-to-back RBI doubles in the third inning off of Hellickson and an RBI single by Brandon Crawford finished the pitcher off in the fifth. His spot in the rotation isn't in jeopardy, but he should probably remain off fantasy radars, as it's been several years since he put up legitimate numbers.
Apr 9 - 1:02 AM

Jeremy Hellickson pitched well in Friday's Cactus League victory over the Cubs, allowing just one run on five hits over his five innings of work.

Hellickson also walked three while striking out three on the evening. The only blemish on his night was a solo blast off the bat of opposing pitcher Travis Wood who had entered the game as a pinch hitter. He'll look to start his regular season off on the right foot when he does battle against the Giants next week.
Apr 4 - 1:10 AM

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.
Mar 27 - 8:33 AM

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.
Mar 19 - 12:19 AM

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.
Feb 28 - 10:31 PM

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.
Fri, Nov 14, 2014 09:51:00 PM

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.
