Hellickson left Wednesday's start against the Dodgers after 71 pitches due to back tightness, The News Journal's Meghan Montemurro reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Phillies' rotation can't seem to catch a break, as Aaron Nola (elbow) and Zach Eflin (knees) are already doubtful to return this season. Hellickson appeared to be clutching his side/back as he exited, so it would not be surprising if he has to miss his next scheduled start on Aug. 17. He allowed one earned run on three hits and a walk while striking out seven over five innings, but was in line for the loss when he exited.

Hellickson (hand) is listed as the starter for Friday's game against Christian Friedrich and the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Hellickson left his last start due to soreness and bruising on the palm of his right hand. It looked like he would be making this start for another club, but the Phillies did not find a trade offer they liked before Monday's deadline. It is unlikely Hellickson will be moved in a waiver deal this month, so he will finish out the season with the Phillies before heading into free agency this winter.

Hellickson (hand) plans to take a break from throwing for a couple days but insists he feels fine, MLB.com's Todd Zolecki reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hellickson has been a name mentioned in many trade conversations, but it doesn't sound like this ailment will be a major hindrance to the right-hander getting moved prior to Monday's deadline. The issue may make certain grips tough in the short term, but Hellickson remains confident the issue will resolve itself with rest. If he's not dealt, Hellickson is currently scheduled to take the mound Friday in San Diego.
