Jeremy Hellickson SP TB 3 Days

Hellickson worked five innings Sunday afternoon versus the Yankees, giving up three earned runs on four hits and a couple of walks while striking out five in a losing effort.

Things were going great over the first four frames Sunday afternoon, as Hellickson ran his scoreless streak to 10 innings. However, the Yankees broke through for three runs in the top of the fifth and ultimately chased the Rays' righty from the game after 99 pitches. Hellickson has been mostly solid through five straight turns in the rotation dating back July 26. During this stretch, he has posted a strong 2.63 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 7.6 K/9 across 27.1 innings.

Hellickson tossed seven strong innings Wednesday afternoon against the A's, surrendering just one earned run on two hits with three strikeouts en route to his first victory of the season.

It now appears safe to say that Hellickson is back. After spending the first three months of the season on the DL, the 27-year-old hurler pitched reasonably well across his first three starts of the season, but was masterful on Wednesday afternoon in Oakland. Hellickson found the zone with 62-of-99 pitches and was virtually unscathed outside of an Eric Sogard homer in the bottom of the sixth inning. The Rays' right-hander will carry a 2.61 ERA into Tuesday's showdown with the Rangers.

Jeremy Hellickson tossed 4 2/3 scoreless innings on Saturday night against the Red Sox.

It was only his second start in the majors this season and he looked pretty sharp, scattering five hits and two walks while striking out five. Hellickson could be a sneaky source of fantasy value down the stretch now that his elbow is back in good shape. He will take on the Angels at home next time out.

Jeremy Hellickson will return to the Rays' starting rotation on Saturday against the Red Sox.

Hellickson was optioned to Double-A Montgomery just before the All-Star break so that he could get in some work during the long layoff. The right-hander held the Royals to one run over 4 1/3 innings on July 8 in what was his first and only start in the majors this season.

Jeremy Hellickson allowed one run on six hits over 4 1/3 innings in his return to the mound against the Royals on Tuesday.

Making his season debut, Hellickson threw 84 pitches before giving way to the bullpen. The right-hander walked one and struck out two in the outing. Hellickson may get in one more start before the All-Star break -- he'd be on regular rest if he pitched Sunday, but the Rays won't need him until after the break -- but he should be a mainstay in the rotation in the second half either way.

Rays activated RHP Jeremy Hellickson from the 15-day disabled list.

Hellickson is making his season debut on Tuesday against the Royals after missing the first three months with elbow issues. The right-hander owns a 3.70 career ERA and a 1.24 career WHIP in 576 1/3 major league innings and is worth a shot in deeper formats.

Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) has been officially named the Rays' starter for Tuesday's game against the Royals.

It will be the right-hander's 2014 major league debut. Hellickson hasn't looked overly sharp on his minor league rehab assignment and has experienced multiple setbacks in his recovery from elbow surgery, but the 27-year-old might be worth a flier in deep mixed fantasy leagues. He owns a 3.70 career ERA and a 1.24 career WHIP in 576 1/3 major league innings. Erik Bedard is being shifted to the Tampa Bay bullpen.

Rays manager Joe Maddon declared Friday that Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) was ready to rejoin the rotation, and is expected to do so on Tuesday.

That coincides with Erik Bedard's next scheduled outing, fueling speculation that the veteran southpaw will be the odd-man out in the rotation once Hellickson does return. Hellickson experienced discomfort in his elbow during his minor league rehab assignment, so fantasy owners should probably take a wait-and-see approach before trusting him in lineups.
