The Rays traded Hellickson to the Diamondbacks on Friday, SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports.

Hellickson missed nearly the entire first half after undergoing arthroscopic elbow surgery in February and finished with a rather unsightly 4.52 ERA and 1.45 WHIP over 63.2 innings. However, Hellickson enjoyed success immediately upon his return, posting a 2.61 ERA over his first seven starts (38 innings), and his 10 percent swinging-strike rate was his best since his rookie season. The Rays will reportedly get outfielder Justin Williams and shortstop Adrew Velazquez back in the deal.

Hellickson will likely be traded to an NL team, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

Hellickson finished the 2014 season with a 4.52 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and a 54:21 K:BB ratio over 63.2 innings. He is first eligible for free agency in 2017, meaning the club who takes him will be able to hold onto him for a few years.

Hellickson (1-5) couldn't make it out of the third inning Thursday against the Red Sox, giving up six runs (five earned) on eight hits.

A rough final outing of the year for Hellickson, who's had more than his share of rough patches since returning from the elbow injury that cost him more than half the season. He wraps things up with a 4.52 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 54:21 K:BB over 63.2 innings. Depending on how things shake out next year, Hellickson could end up being a nice value pick at the very back end of fantasy drafts.

Hellickson labored through 4.1 innings against the White Sox on Friday night, giving up four earned runs on seven hits and two walks while recording just one strikeout.

Hellickson has struggled mightily with command as of late and that has predictably led to lackluster results. Over his last five outings, the Rays' righty has posted a 6.17 ERA and 1.84 WHIP while issuing a dozen free passes across 23.1 innings. Hellickson could be in line for one more turn in the rotation, which would likely come Thursday versus the Red Sox or during next weekend's series in Cleveland.

Hellickson tossed 5.1 solid innings Sunday versus the Orioles, allowing two earned runs on four hits and two walks while picking up six strikeouts.

After being knocked around for nine runs (eight earned) on 16 hits and four walks across 7.2 innings during his last couple of outings, Hellickson was certainly in need of a positive performance like the one he put together Sunday afternoon. The Rays' right-hander will look to build off of this effort next weekend in Toronto.

Hellickson was chased after 3.1 innings Tuesday, giving up five runs -- all of them earned -- on eight hits while walking two and striking out two against the visiting Jays.

Homers in the second and fourth innings by the Jays, as well as a high pitch count of 87 were enough for manager Joe Maddon to pull the plug on the fifth-year big leaguer, who now hasn't won since August 8 against Oakland. He'll try to improve upon his 2-2 record and 3.75 ERA when he toes the bump in his next start against Baltimore on Sunday.

Hellickson allowed four runs -- three earned -- and eight hits in just 4.1 innings to record a no-decision at Baltimore on Thursday. He walked two and struck out a pair of batters.

Hellickson got off to a shaky start, allowing two runs in the first inning, including a homer to the second batter he faced. Hellickson's first couple of starts this season, which came in July, were short, but he's been effective in general though. Despite pitching relatively well in eight starts this year; he's only got one win to show for it. He'll try to get in the win column in his next start, which will be against Toronto at home.

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.
