Hellickson said he was feeling tightness in his back after Friday's start against Pittsburgh, but he doesn't expect it will force him to miss any starts, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Hellickson left an excellent start in the top of the seventh inning after feeling tightness in his back following an RBI double. The Phillies removed him largely as a precaution, particularly considering he would have had to run the bases following the hit. Expect him to make his next scheduled start Wednesday.
