Jeremy Hellickson was shredded for seven runs in five innings in a loss to the Rockies on Wednesday.
He can't use Coors Field as an excuse either since this game was played in Philadelphia. He actually tossed four scoreless frames interrupted by a seven-run outburst in the third inning. He walked two batters in that inning and gave up six hits, including a three-run bomb by Carlos Gonzalez. Hellickson gave up a total of eight hits and four free passes while notching only two strikeouts in the contest. He had been having a strong season, entering the day with a 5-1 record and 3.44 ERA despite his 3.62 K/9 being the worst in the league by a wide margin. He falls to 5-2 with a 4.28 ERA after 10 starts. May 24 - 11:43 PM

Jeremy Hellickson said Friday that he is dealing with tightness in his back but still expects to be able to make his next start.

The right-hander was pulled from Friday's game after he smashed an RBI double in the seventh inning but appeared to tweak something on a swing. It's encouraging that he believes the injury to be minor and should be able to avoid the trip to the disabled list.

Jeremy Hellickson was forced to leave Friday's game against the Pirates with an apparent injury.

Hellickson had fired six strong innings, allowing just two runs (one earned) on two hits before departing. He remained in the game to hit in the top half of the seventh and slashed a double to left field, but appeared to tweak his side during his swing and was eventually lifted. Look for an update from the Phillies on his status after the game.
May 19 - 9:30 PM

Jeremy Hellickson took a no-decision after allowing three earned runs over five innings Sunday versus the Nationals.

Philly won the game with a big rally off Nationals closer Shawn Kelley in the top of the ninth inning. Hellickson was long gone by then, after yielding six hits -- including two home runs -- over his five frames. The right-hander will carry a 3.71 ERA into his next start on the road versus the Pirates.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports the Phillies will "listen" on offers for Jeremy Hellickson.

With Hellickson headed for free agency after this season, the rebuilding Phillies would likely jump at the chance to trade him if the right offer came along. Per Cafardo, the Phillies are targeting prospects to beef up their farm system. Hellickson has registered a respectable 3.49 ERA this year, but it's come with a mediocre 3.96 K/9.

Jeremy Hellickson struggled in Sunday's no-decision against the Nationals, allowing three runs on five hits over 4 2/3 innings.

The veteran right-hander walked three and struck out four on the afternoon. He needed 98 pitches to record 14 outs in this one, failing to make it out of the fifth inning. Jayson Werth was single-handedly responsible for the offense against him, with a solo homer in the first and two-run shot in the fifth. Even with this rough outing, Hellickson sits at 4-1 on the year with a 3.49 ERA and 1.09 WHIP. He'll get a chance to rectify this start when he battles these same Nationals in Washington on Sunday.
May 7 - 6:33 PM

Jeremy Hellickson gave up three homers and six runs in four innings Tuesday in a loss to the Cubs.

Hellickson was due for a clunker after somehow allowing just two homers in 30 innings coming into this one. The loss was his first in six starts this season.
May 3 - 12:26 AM

Jeremy Hellickson limited the Marlins to one run over six innings Thursday to improve to 4-0 with a 1.80 ERA.

He struck out one in this one, and he's fanned only 11 batters in five starts total, though it obviously hasn't hurt him. He's also given up just two homers in 30 innings so far, even though his flyball rate was higher than usual entering today. We still wouldn't trust him as a mixed-league starting pitcher.
Apr 27 - 4:54 PM

Jeremy Hellickson improved to 3-0 on the season Friday, limiting the Braves to two runs on three hits over his seven innings of work.

The right-hander punched out five on the evening and didn't issue a walk. Adonis Garcia delivered an RBI single against him in the fourth and Freddie Freeman blasted a solo homer in the sixth, but aside from that Hellickson was in complete command. He'll carry an impressive 1.88 ERA and 0.71 WHIP into his next start against the Marlins on Thursday.
Apr 21 - 10:19 PM

Jeremy Hellickson earned a win over the Nationals on Saturday by limiting them to two runs in seven innings in the Phillies' 4-2 victory.

He allowed just four hits and a walk while fanning two batters in the sterling effort. He yielded an RBI single to Anthony Rendon in the third inning and then held steady until allowing a solo home run to Chris Heisey in the seventh. Hellickson returned to the mound in fine shape today after leaving his last outing on Sunday with a right forearm cramp. He is now 2-0 with a 1.59 ERA through three starts. One concern is that he has struck out only five batters in 17 innings.
Apr 15 - 4:24 PM

Jeremy Hellickson was lifted from Sunday's start versus the Nationals with a right forearm cramp.

Hellickson shut out the Nats for the first five innings but then had to leave after throwing a few warm-up pitches prior to the sixth. If it's indeed just a cramp it shouldn't be a big deal, but it's possible Hellickson still needs to be examined further. The Phillies should have more on his status after the game.
Apr 9 - 3:44 PM

Jeremy Hellickson left Sunday's start against the Nationals after five innings with an apparent right hand injury.

It looked like it was probably a blister, as Hellickson threw a few warm-up tosses prior to the sixth inning before walking off the mound. The Phillies should have more on the right-hander's status later. Hellickson was excellent before departing, holding the Nats to one hit and one walk over five scoreless frames.
Apr 9 - 3:29 PM

Jeremy Hellickson tossed five innings of one-run ball Monday in the Phillies' defeat of the Reds.

Hellickson fared pretty well on a rainy Opening Day in Cincinnati, yielding just one extra-base hit and one walk over five solid frames. The only run he gave up came on a sacrifice fly by Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton in the bottom of the third, and Hellickson also contributed an RBI triple as a hitter. He will look to move to 2-0 in his next outing at home against the Nationals. The 29-year-old right-hander went 12-10 with a cool 3.71 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 154/45 K/BB ratio over 189 innings last season.
Apr 3 - 7:36 PM

Jeremy Hellickson went 6 1/3 innings and allowed one run Friday against the Yankees.

This will go down as Hellickson's longest start of the spring, as the Phillies will back off him a bit next week in advance of his Opening Day start. He lowered his spring ERA from 7.50 to 5.92.
Mar 24 - 5:45 PM

The Phillies have named Jeremy Hellickson their Opening Day starter.

The announcement comes a day after Hellickson was torched for eight runs -- five earned -- over five innings against the Pirates, although the righty has historically struggled during spring training. Hellickson earned the nod after putting up a 3.71 ERA for the Phils last season, which earned him a $17.2 million qualifying offer (he accepted).
