Jeremy Hellickson named Phillies’ opening day starter

Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly reports that, officially, finally, Jeremy Hellickson has been named *the* opening day starter for the Phillies.

For the second consecutive year, Hellickson will fire the Phils’ first pitch at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati.

Hellickson now has as many opening day starts for the Phils as Cole Hamels. And Jon Lieber.

If the rotation stays as is, the rotation for the Reds series will be Hellickson, Jerad Eickhoff and Clay Buchholz. Vince Velasquez is in line to start the home opener against Washington.
