BREAKING: Hellickson to Orioles for prospect, outfielder Kim

UPDATE (12:04 a.m.): The deal is set, with the Phillies sending Hellickson and cash to Baltimore for Cleavinger, international bonus money and outfielder Hyun Soo Kim.

In the second year of a two-year, $7 million contract, Kim is hitting .232/.305/.288 with one home run and 10 RBI this season. Last year he hit .302/.382/.420 with six home runs and 22 RBI in 305 at bats. He’s likely to slot into the Phils bench, taking Kendrick’s spot after that trade.
