rays_jeremy_hellickson_2013According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times Rays pitcher Jeremy Hellickson had loose bodies removed from his elbow by  Dr. Koco Eaton and will miss the first 6-8 weeks of the season.

Hellickson is coming off a disappointing 2013 season where he finished 12-10 with a 5.27 ERA.

He was the Game 4 starter in the ALDS  but was unable to make it out of the second inning in the Rays season ending loss to the Boston Red Sox.

Like so many pitchers before him Jake Odorizzi will be given the chance at filling the whole in the rotation vacated by Hellickson.



I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
