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).
Mar 19 - 11:08 AM

Jeremy Hellickson was pummeled for eight runs -- five earned -- in five innings of work in a loss to the Pirates on Saturday.

He gave up nine hits and a walk while fanning three. He is following through on his history of pitching poorly in the spring, now sitting on a 7.50 ERA after 18 innings. He was surprisingly effective in 32 starts for the Phillies last season, finishing with a solid 3.71 ERA and 154 strikeouts in 189 innings. His rotation slot is not in jeopardy despite the rough start.
Mar 18 - 5:16 PM

Jeremy Hellickson surrendered five runs in four innings Monday in a loss to the Orioles.

Hellickson has given up 10 runs and 17 hits in 13 innings this spring. He has a history of poor springs, so there's nothing very surprising about his slow start. He was better last March, though, finishing with a 3.31 ERA.
Mar 13 - 5:03 PM

Jeremy Hellickson yielded two runs in four innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Braves.

Hellickson has given up five runs over nine innings in his three starts this spring, but that's about par for the course for him; his career spring ERA stands at 5.47. He's expected to be the Phillies' Opening Day starter.
Mar 8 - 4:03 PM

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.

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.
