Top prospect right-hander Jeremy Hellickson is coming to Durham and scheduled to start on Friday. [The Heater]. Hellickson has been bothered by a shoulder injury this year, limiting his starts in Montgomery to just 11 games. He was 3-1 with the Biscuits with an ERA of 2.38 in 56⅔ innings. I’m betting his pitch count will be limited with us, but what’s new?
By my count that’s six starters: Sonnanstine, Hernandez, DeSalvo, Cromer, Houser, and Hellickson. So someone’s about the move to bullpen or get pushed off the bus. Unless Sonnanstine isn’t ready to come off the DL.
