Hellickson is average...

What the hell, Hellickson?

Recently christened GM, Matt Klentak, hasn't wasted any time bolstering the pitching staff, which was his No. 1 objective this offseason.  He already added buy-low relief help in the form of Dan Otero and James Russell, and now he's added a veteran to the rotation to soak up innings in Jeremy Hellickson. Hellickson, the former Rookie of the Year in 2011, will turn 29 years at the...

Phillies send prospect to D-Backs for Jeremy Hellickson

First, the Braves and Angels shocked us with the Andrelton Simmons trade. Then the Red Sox shook the world with their acquisition of Craig Kimbrel.

Jeremy Hellickson begins work to shed wild-card label with Rays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Jeremy Hellickson walked toward his dugout to a standing ovation from some. His return to the Tampa Bay Rays' rotation was, by any reasonable analysis, better than expected. He entered as a wild card Tuesday at Tropicana Field, the ghosts of his grisly 2013 season not far from memory with each whisper of his name. Only Hellickson can chase the suspicion that...
