When the Philadelphia Phillies dealt for 29-year old righty starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson, they did it with the idea that he would give the younger pitchers on the team a good example to follow. He has done much, much more than that in 2016! He has pitched in 30 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 12-9 with a 3.57 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP. He has given up 165 hits and 42 walks while whiffing 149 batters in his 181 1/3 innings for the Phillies this year. Hellickson has really been sharp since the All-Star break, working in 12 games (all starts) in which he is 6-3 with a 3.09 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP. He has now pitched in 172 games (165 starts) in his first seven years in the show and he is 61-57 with a 3.87 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. Hellickson is looking a lot like the pitcher he was with the Tampa Bay Rays when he won the American League Rookie of the Year Award in 2011.
