Phillies extend qualifying offer to Jeremy Hellickson

hellicksonIn not-so-shocking news, the Phillies have extended a qualifying offer to Jeremy Hellickson.

If accepted, Hellickson would pitch for the Phillies in 2017 under a one-year, $17.2 million contract. If rejected, Hellickson goes onto the free agent market; if a team signs Hellickson, that team would surrender its first non-protected draft pick, and the Phils would be granted a compensatory draft pick between rounds one and two.

Hellickson has one week to decide the next step. He went 12-10 with a 3.71 ERA last year for the Phils, a bounceback season that proved him one of the stronger mid-to-late-rotation starters in baseball.

Sources believe Hellickson would receive a generous free-agent contract on the market. Phillies Nation has previously said the Phils should extend the qualifying offer to Hellickson.
