Red Sox Scouting Former Rays SP Jeremy Hellickson

Jeremy Hellickson
Multiple reports now indicate that the Red Sox are "scouting" Phillies starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson with the interest of trading for him. The former Tampa Bay Ray is 6-6 this season with a 3.92 ERA over 18 starts. The 29-year old right-hander was once a fixture in the Tampa rotation—and had double-digit win seasons in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Over his seven-year career, Hellickson is 55-54 with a 3.94 ERA. He's averaged about seven strikeouts and three walks per nine innings pitched. He would be an 'OK' addition to the Boston rotation—but by no means an elite one.
