When the Philadelphia Phillies traded for 29-year old righty starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson, they were expecting him to not only pitch well….but to serve as a good example for the younger starting pitchers on the team. He is doing both things well right now. Hellickson has pitched in 9 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 4-2 with a 3.99 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. He has given up 49 hits (9 homers) and 13 walks while whiffing 50 batters in his first 49 2/3 innings this year! Hellickson has now pitched in 151 games (144 starts) in his first seven years in the show and he is 53-50 with a 3.94 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP.
