Nats’ starter Jeremy Hellickson happy to help team that believed in him...

Jeremy Hellickson looked for a deal a long time this past offseason, and found the right spot when he took a minor league deal with the Nationals. Jeremy Hellickson bounced back from a flu-influenced four inning outing in which he gave up nine hits and nine runs (eight earned) in what ended up a 14-12 win over Miami, with five scoreless on the road in Pittsburgh’s PNC Park. Hellickson gave up just two hits in a 5-1 win for the Washington Nationals over the Pirates. “He’s been really good, honestly. Keeps us in the ballgame and on this club when you do that we’ve got a good chance to...

Nationals’ Jeremy Hellickson healthy, back to keeping hitters off-balance in win over Pirates...

Washington Nationals’ skipper Davey Martinez and Nats’ infielder Daniel Murphy talked after Tuesday’s game about how impressed they were with Jeremy Hellickson... In his first two starts back following a hamstring injury, Jeremy Hellickson allowed 16 total hits and 12 runs, 11 of them earned over 8 2⁄3 innings combined (11.42 ERA) before tonight, with opposing hitters putting up a .372/.426/.698 line against him in those outings. “He kept the ball down when he needed to, his curveball was really sharp, his changeup was really good, but he attacked the strike zone...” - Davey...

Pirates struggle against Jeremy Hellickson in 5-1 loss to Nationals

Joe Musgrove’s finger did not seem to bother him Tuesday night. He commanded his pitches well enough to generate swings and misses. That same command, though, might have contributed to the Washington Nationals fouling off nearly a third of his pitches.

Jeremy Hellickson suffers first loss in return to Nationals’ rotation vs Phillies

Jeremy Hellickson’s command and control are still a work in progress, but he’s back in the majors with the Nationals... Jeremy Hellickson waited for big league offers all winter, (after posting a 5.43 ERA, a 5.77 FIP, 2.58 BB/9, 5.27 K/9, and a .250/.312/.497 line against in 164 innings for Baltimore and Philadelphia in 2017), before finally accepting a minor league deal with Washington. Earlier this season, the 31-year-old, nine-year veteran said he had something to prove after he faced the Orioles for the first time as part of the Nationals’ rotation. “I just had a little bit of...

Sammy Solis odd man out in Washington Nationals’ bullpen, gets optioned to Triple-A...

Sammy Solis was the odd man out, and the only reliever in the bullpen with an option, when the Nats needed to make a move with Jeremy Hellickson returning from the DL to start on Saturday. Sammy Solis talked last week about blowing past his previous season-high for appearances early this time around in part because he was finally healthy, but also because he was asked to while the Washington Nationals sorted out things in their bullpen. At that point, he’d seen action in 37 of 74 games. “I felt good,” Solis said. “It was a little over-use at a certain point. I remember coming out...

Jeremy Hellickson returned to the Nationals’ rotation and gave up three runs in a 3-2 loss to the Phillies in Citizens Bank Park. Vince Velasquez was out early after taking a line drive off his right arm in the second inning and the Philadelphia Phillies pieced together the rest of the game while scoring three runs off Washington Nationals’ righty Jeremy Hellickson and holding on for a 3-2 win in the third of four between the NL East rivals in Citizens Bank Park.

Nationals reinstate Jeremy Hellickson from DL; option Sammy Solis to Triple-A...

Jeremy Hellickson returns to the Nationals’ rotation tonight, and Sammy Solis is headed to Triple-A to make room on the roster for Hellickson’s return. In spite of the results in his one rehab start, which saw him give up nine hits, three walks, and 11 runs, all earned in 4 2⁄3 innings for the Potomac Nationals before he was lifted after getting his work in (83 pitches), Jeremy Hellickson told reporters he felt he was ready to return to the major league rotation. “I feel ready to go,” Hellickson said. “I felt my stuff was pretty good. I feel 100 percent. My command was pretty...

Jefry Rodriguez impresses, struggles in first MLB start for Nationals vs Orioles...

There were positives to take from Jefry Rodriguez’s second outing and first major league start, and some things the 24-year-old right-hander clearly needs to work on. Washington Nationals’ prospect Jefry Rodriguez was pressed into service back on June 3rd in Atlanta, when Jeremy Hellickson injured his hamstring one batter into the bottom of the first, but the 24-year-old right-hander acquitted himself well in what was his major league debut, throwing 4 2⁄3 scoreless against the Braves in what ended up a 4-2 loss in which he received no decision. “He went out there, he was poised,...
