Hellickson sent down - to Class A



Jeremy Hellickson was sent to the minors after Friday's game, but rather than a return to Triple-A Durham, he is being sent to Class A Charlotte so he can make the transition to being used out of the bullpen.

Hellickson took the news in stride, saying he was disappointed but understood and expected to be back in 10 days when the rosters expand.

Reliever Dale Thayer was called up from Triple-A to bolster the bullpen for a few days until the Rays activate Wade Davis and Jeff Niemann of the DL.
