Hellickson struck out seven and allowed a single earned run on three hits across six innings of a no-decision Sunday against the Diamondbacks. Hellickson also didn't issue a single walk, which is the first time he's done that since May 14 -- a span of seven starts. Also, his seven K's were a season high and brought him up to 45 on the year. Hellickson hasn't earned a victory in more than a month (May 19 against Pittsburgh), however, so he's probably one starter to avoid if possible given his status as the de facto "ace" for the worst team in the majors.
Hellickson allowed one run on six hits and two walks while striking out four over seven innings but came away with a no-decision in Tuesday's extra-inning loss to the Cardinals. After coughing up 25 runs (23 earned) over 27.1 innings in his last five starts, Hellickson was able to return to his early-season form for at least one night. The reprieve for his fantasy GMs may have been temporary, however, as the righty's next start is set for Sunday on the road against the dangerous Diamondbacks.
Hellickson picked up his fifth loss of the season Wednesday after allowing six runs on nine hits over five innings. He struck out one and walked three. Hellickson had a great month of April, but he has been terrible since then. Over his last nine starts, he is 1-5 with a 6.89 ERA and a 23:20 K:BB in 47 innings. The Phillies were hoping to flip him for a prospect at the trade deadline this year, but that looks highly unlikely at the moment.
Hellickson was tagged with his fourth loss of the season Friday after allowing three runs on 10 hits over six innings against the Cardinals. He struck out five and walked one. Hellickson allowed a home run to Aledmys Diaz in the game and has now given up 12 homers in his last eight starts. He has a 6.43 ERA over that stretch with a 22:17 K:BB in 42 innings. The Phillies had hoped to flip Hellickson for a prospect at the trade deadline, but it is hard to see a contender being interested given how poorly he has pitched of late. He faces the Red Sox at home in his next start.
Hellickson allowed five runs (three earned) on four hits over 5.1 innings Sunday against the Giants. He struck out four and walked four. Hellickson struggled with his control Sunday and tossed 103 pitches despite the abbreviated outing. He has been in a bit of a rut since the end of April, going 1-3 with a 6.75 ERA and a 17:16 K:BB in 36 innings over his last seven starts.
