Hellickson knows he could be traded to a new team fairly soon.
Philadelphia, PA – Fresh off a sparking eight-inning, shutout start against the Miami Marlins, Phillies pitcher Jeremy Hellickson acknowledged today that he may be traded to a contender but would only accept a deal to a team that could forward his career.
Hellickson said he has enjoyed his time with the Phillies, but would welcome a change if the fit was right.
“If I’m traded, I want it to be on my terms to a team that can help my career in the long run,” Hellickson told reporters this morning.
Philadelphia, PA – Following a grueling 6-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds, in which the Phillies took a 2-1 lead into the bottom of the eighth, the City of Philadelphia was thrilled when it realized it no longer had to pay any attention to the organization for the rest of the year.
The loss diminished any shred of hope for a positive season of any kind, a record for the organization after just one game played.
The man, the myth, the legend…Jeremy Hellickson.
Philadelphia, PA -Omar Daal, Kevin Millwood, Robert Person, Andy Ashby, some guy named Sid Fernandez.
Now, Jeremy Hellickson can add his own name to that vaunted list of elite Philadelphia athletes.
The Philadelphia Phillies made it official, naming Hellickson as its opening day starter for the 2016 season.
