Predicting the Phillies Starting Rotation Order

The 2017 Phillies feel unique among rebuilding teams in that their starting pitching rotation is likely to be 80 percent the same as it was the previous season. Potential building blocks like Aaron Nola, Jerad Eickhoff, and Vince Velasquez are all back. For better or worse, Jeremy Hellickson is back as well after accepting the Phillies’ qualifying offer instead of testing the free...

Why Jerad Eickhoff should be the Phillies’ Opening Day starter

Manager Pete Mackanin should look to one of the Phils’ young guns to make the season’s first start. Look, this is nothing to get our undies in a twist over or anything, but Jeremy Hellickson shouldn’t be the Phillies Opening Day starter in 2017. Manger Pete Mackanin appears to be leaning in that general direction, however, telling beat reporters down in Clearwater, “[Hellickson’s...

Did Jeremy Hellickson Really Improve This Year?

Around this time in 2015, right-hander Jeremy Hellickson had just completed a three-year stretch during which he recorded a cumulative ERA near five and experienced some injury troubles to boot. Following his one and only season in Arizona, he was traded to Philadelphia for a young righty who wasn’t even among the Phillies’ top-25 prospects at the time. There wasn’t a great...

Hellickson Accepts Offer, Makes Pitching Market Even Thinner

We have our first qualifying-offer acceptance of the offseason, and it’s Jeremy Hellickson who’s taken $17 million to stay put for another year. He’ll remain with the Phillies for now, and get paid rather handsomely to do so. A guarantee of $17.2 million isn’t bad at all for a pitcher with Hellickson’s past. He was a somewhat interesting commodity given that he was coming...

Assembling a Free Agent Rotation: Jeremy Hellickson

After looking at the upside of Henderson Álvarez Monday and last year’s second-half production from Jhoulys Chacín on Tuesday, we come to, in all likelihood, our most expensive building block of this ridiculous exercise: Jeremy Hellickson. Unlike Álvarez, and Chacín to a certain extent, the hype surrounding Hellickson when he came into the league was quite high. A fourth-round...
