Jeremy Hellickson named Phillies opening day starter again

Ho hum, just another opening day start for Jeremy Hellickson. The Phillies announced Sunday that their opening day starter would be a pitcher named Jeremy Hellickson.

Philadelphia Phillies: Why Jeremy Hellickson shouldn’t start opening day 2017

As manager Pete Mackanin has just announced that Jeremy Hellickson will indeed make his second consecutive opening day start, I think he’s made the wrong decision.

On the surface it feels like the $17.2 million qualifying offer price tag is outrageous, especially after the Phillies acquired Hellickson for a marginal prospect just over a year ago.

Did Jeremy Hellickson Really Improve This Year?

Around this time in 2015, right-hander Jeremy Hellickson had just completed a three-year stretch during which he recorded a cumulative ERA near five and experienced some injury troubles to boot. Following his one and only season in Arizona, he was traded to Philadelphia for a young righty who wasn’t even among the Phillies’ top-25 prospects at the time. There wasn’t a great...

Hellickson Accepts Offer, Makes Pitching Market Even Thinner
