Hellickson has rough minor-league outing
The Rays wanted RHP Jeremy Hellickson to work in a minor-league game on Thursday rather than pitch against the Orioles, who he is likely to face in the second game of the regular season,
But it didn't go too well for Hellickson on the back field in Port Charlotte, as he threw 70 pitches in what looked like a rough outing based on his line:
3 1 /3 innings, 4 hits, 3 runs (2 earned), 4 walks, 3 strikeouts, a hit batter. Plus only 41 of 70 pitches for strikes.
