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. Aug 20 - 11:19 PM

Jeremy Hellickson (back) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Wednesday.

If it goes well, he should remain on track to start Saturday against the Cardinals. Hellickson departed his last outing because of back tightness, but it sounds like it's a minor issue. The 29-year-old right-hander boasts a solid 3.65 ERA and 119/32 K/BB ratio in 143 innings this season for Philadelphia.

Jeremy Hellickson (back) is tentatively expected to return next Saturday against the Cardinals.

Hellickson left his last start with back tightness but is only expected to miss one start. The Phillies have two off days next week, which will give him more time to prepare. After a couple tough years in Tampa Bay and Arizona, the former AL Rookie of the Year has posted a respectable 3.65 ERA in 24 starts for the Phillies this season. The 29-year-old will be a free agent this winter.

Jeremy Hellickson left Wednesday's game against the Dodgers due to back tightness.

Hellickson was pitching well before his back seized up on him, limiting the Dodgers to one run on three hits over five innings. He had racked up seven strikeouts, but was seen grabbing at his side in the fifth, at which point the bullpen got cracking. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward until the Phillies are able to come up with a more concrete prognosis.
Aug 10 - 4:54 PM

The Phillies didn't trade Jeremy Hellickson before Monday's 4 p.m. ET deadline.

It's a mild surprise given all the chatter about him in recent weeks. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal speculates that Hellickson is now likely to receive a qualifying offer from Philadelphia.
Aug 1 - 4:39 PM

According to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, the Tigers have shown interest in Jeremy Hellickson.

We've also seen reports tying the Orioles and Blue Jays to the 29-year-old right-hander. Hellickson has rebounded with a 3.70 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 109/29 K/BB ratio in 131 1/3 innings this season with Philadelphia. He had a 4.86 ERA in 383 2/3 innings between 2013-2015. Hellickson is scheduled to become a free agent five days after the conclusion of the 2016 World Series.
Aug 1 - 10:26 AM

Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports that the Blue Jays are still in play for Jeremy Hellickson.

It still looks likely that the Blue Jays will limit Aaron Sanchez's innings by shifting him to the bullpen at some point before the end of the season, so they're exploring all avenues for upgrades to their starting rotation. Hellickson, surprisingly, is one of the most attractive options still available prior to Monday's deadline.
Jul 31 - 6:34 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Giants "are not in the mix" for Jeremy Hellickson.

The Giants are in on multiple pitchers, but it appears Hellickson isn't one of them after all. They've been connected to Wade Miley and Erasmo Ramirez.
Jul 31 - 3:47 PM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Orioles and Giants are among the "top contenders" to land Jeremy Hellickson.

Hellickson is an unlikely hot commodity during a trade deadline that's starved for starting pitching. The Marlins have also been connected to him and it wouldn't be a surprise if they have renewed interest following Colin Rea's elbow injury. Hellickson has put up a 2.27 ERA over his last seven starts.
Jul 31 - 1:50 PM

Jeremy Hellickson said Sunday that his right hand feels fine.

Hellickson departed Saturday's start against the Braves with a bruised right hand, but he'll be ready to go for his next turn. There's a good chance it will come in another uniform.
Jul 31 - 11:09 AM

Jeremy Hellickson left Saturday's start against the Braves with a bruised right hand.

Hellickson fouled a ball off his hand in the sixth inning. He came back out to pitch the bottom half of the frame but was lifted after allowing a walk and two hits. Hellickson admitted that it was difficult to grip his curveball after the injury. It's poor timing as Hellickson has been the subject of recent trade rumors, though this injury looks pretty minor.
Jul 31 - 12:19 AM

SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports that the Blue Jays are "considering many starting options," with Jeremy Hellickson, Rich Hill and the Rays' starters on their radar.

Cotillo adds that the Blue Jays are looking at potential bullpen options, as well. Hellickson seems like a poor fit back in the American League and at Rogers Centre, but he has pitched well lately. Hill is still dealing with a blister issue and is next start remains up in the air.
Jul 29 - 1:16 PM

Rival executives talking to the Phillies about Jeremy Hellickson tell ESPN's Jayson Stark that the club is asking for "one of your top five prospects."

The quality of that top five obviously varies greatly from organization to organization, but the point is the Phillies want something significant in return for the 29-year-old right-hander, who boasts a 3.65 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 107/28 K/BB ratio in 125 2/3 innings this season. Stark says Philadelphia would be content with getting a draft pick when Hellickson departs via free agency this winter. He is probably well on his way to a qualifying offer, and he is a Scott Boras client.
Jul 27 - 1:22 PM

Jeremy Hellickson improved his trade stock by holding the Marlins to one hit over six shutout frames in Monday's 4-0 victory.

Hellickson recorded just one strikeout, but he also permitted only one hit and one walk. He had thrown just 70 pitches through six innings, but the Phillies elected to pinch-hit for him in the top of the seventh when they had a scoring opportunity. Hellickson will go into the trade deadline having yielded just one run over 14 frames. If he's not dealt by then, he'll get the Braves this weekend.
Jul 25 - 11:09 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Marlins are interested in a potential trade for Jeremy Hellickson.

Nothing imminent here. Rosenthal's report backs a Monday update from's Joe Frisaro who likewise relayed that the Marlins were intrigued by Hellickson. President of baseball operations Michael Hill got a personal taste of his work in Philadelphia on Wednesday, as he was in town to watch the hurler toss eight inning of one-run ball against his squad. Hellickson struck out eight in the contest. He holds a 3.84 ERA over 119 2/3 innings. FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Orioles are also interested in the 29-year-old right-hander.
