Jeremy Hellickson SP PHI 5 days ago

Hellickson (4-3) went seven innings but allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk with seven strikeouts during Tuesday's loss against the Tigers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Hellickson matched a season high in terms of innings pitched, but it wasn't enough to avoid the loss. The 29-year-old righty continues to post decent strikeout totals in 2016, and has already punched out 57 in 56.2 frames.

Hellickson (4-2) allowed two runs on five hits over six innings in a 4-2 victory over the Marlins on Wednesday afternoon. He also struck out four and walked one.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The right-hander was effective for the second straight outing, as he only needed 89 pitches (54 strikes) to get through six frames. Hellickson recorded 11 of his 18 outs via ground balls. This marked the third time in the last four starts that he induced at least 10 ground balls. That's helped him post a 3.99 ERA and 1.25 WHIP. His next start will be Tuesday against the Tigers.

Hellickson allowed two runs (both unearned) on four hits, walking one and striking out nine over seven innings of a 3-2 victory over the Reds on Friday night.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Hellickson (3-2) was quite effective, needing just 93 pitches (64 for strikes) to cover the seven innings before turning it over to the bullpen. He has generally outperformed expectations with the exception of a couple of awful outings for the surprising Phillies, compiling a 4.12 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP, and logging 46 strikeouts in 43.2 innings. He'll face Miami at home next time out.

Hellickson allowed three runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out four over 5.1 innings, but received no decision Saturday at the Marlins.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Hellickson left the game with a two-run deficit, but the offense came up big in the eighth inning to take him off the hook for a potential loss. He's now failed to post a quality start in five of his last six outings, and his ERA is at 4.91. He'll make his next start Friday against the Reds.

Hellickson (2-2) allowed six runs on seven hits and four walks with five strikeouts over 5.1 innings in Monday's loss to St. Louis.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Hellickson got touched up for three home runs, the worst a three-run dinger by his counterpart Adam Wainwright. He has now served up seven home runs in six starts for a horrific 2.0 HR/9, and he has allowed at least 20 home runs four times. This has been the Achilles heel for Hellickson his whole career -- he hasn't posted a single HR/9 below 1.00 in his seven-year career. Hellickson is still drawing swings and misses, and his 33:10 K:BB in 31.1 innings is stellar, but it won't matter if he can't keep the ball in the yard.

Hellickson (2-1) tossed seven shutout innings and allowed just two hits in Wednesday's victory over the Nationals. He also struck out eight and walked three.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 29-year-old had a couple rough starts in a row but rebounded to allow just two hits, the fewest he's yielded in a start since August of 2014. Hellickson has never been a huge strikeout guy, but through five starts this season, he has 28 punchouts in 26 frames. He is scheduled to make his next start Monday against the Cardinals.

Hellickson (1-1) lasted just 4.1 innings and did not factor in the decision against the Mets on Wednesday. He allowed four runs on ten hits while walking one and striking out six.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Hellickson has now failed to make it through five innings in consecutive starts. His first season with the Phillies is off to a confusing start. Despite having a 20:3 K:BB, the right-hander also holds an ugly 5.21 ERA through his first 19 innings. It won't get any easier in his next start against the Nationals. The team from D.C. smashed Hellickson last season, lighting him up for eight runs, two homers and eight walks in 10.1 innings over two starts.

Hellickson allowed four runs on 10 hits over 4.1 innings Wednesday against the Mets. He struck out six and walked one.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Hellickson had runners on base all night, but managed to allow just two runs through four innings. In the fifth, he gave up solo home runs to Yoenis Cespedes and Lucas Duda which ended his night. Hellickson has given up 16 hits and nine earned runs over his last two starts, leaving him with a 5.21 ERA in four starts this season.

Hellickson allowed six runs (five earned) on seven hits, walking one and striking out three over three innings of a 9-1 loss to Washington on Friday night.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Hellickson (1-1, 4.30 ERA) was part of a surprising Phillies rotation that got the team off to a solid start this season, but the wheels came off in this one. Michael Taylor lead off the game with a home run, and Jayson Werth contributed a bases-loaded double in a five-run first inning that pretty much set the tone. He'll get the Mets at home in his next start.

Hellickson (1-0) held the Mets to two runs on three hits and a walk over 5.2 innings to pick up the victory Sunday, striking out five.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He's off to an impressive beginning to his 2016 campaign, posting a 1.54 ERA and tiny 0.447 WHIP through his first two starts (13.2 innings) with an 11:1 K:BB. Hellickson won't be able to keep up that kind of pace, but it wasn't all that long ago he was considered a promising prospect for the Rays, so a breakout season isn't out of the question. He'll face a good test in his next start, at home Friday against Bryce Harper and the Nationals.
