ATLANTA - Jeremy Hellickson flipped over his right hand Sunday morning to reveal a bruised palm and nothing more. "I'll be all right," Hellickson said. The 29-year-old righthanded pitcher injured his hand on a swing in Saturday night's win. He took comfort in knowing he will have some extra time before his next scheduled start, Friday in San Diego, because of an off day. Of course, Hellickson could have a new employer by 4 p.m. on Monday. The Phillies, according to an ESPN.com report , have maintained a high price for Hellickson.

I probably don't have to tell you what a huge relief it was this week to learn that plagiarism is finally all right. Man, that took long enough. It is so easy to accidentally slip when writing about Philadelphia sports. Sometimes, particularly when the local landscape is outlined against a blue, gray October sky, the Four Horsemen occasionally ride again. As you well know, in dramatic lore, they are Famine, Pestilence, Destruction, and Death. But those are only aliases. Their real names are Eagles, Flyers, Sixers, and Phillies.

THE INVENTORY of pitchers that will be participating for big-league jobs this spring grew by one on Monday, when Phillies general manager Matt Klentak claimed another off waivers. Righthander Michael Mariot was claimed off waivers from the Kansas City Royals, becoming the fifth pitcher Klentak has added since taking over as GM at the end of October. The 27-year-old Mariot, who went 4-2 with a 2.32 ERA in 42 relief appearances at Triple A Omaha, joins rotation-lock Jeremy Hellickson (trade)

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Jeremy Hellickson's final tune-up before opening day was marred by one pitch that he let slip Wednesday in the fifth inning of a 8-4 win over Houston in the Phillies' Grapefruit League finale. Andres Blanco hit a grand slam in the eighth as the Phillies scored eight times in the inning. Hellickson allowed four hits, struck out five and walked one in 42/3 innings. All three of the runs he allowed came on a two-out home run by Jose Altuve, who drove a low and inside two-seam fastball to left field.

The Phillies agreed to one-year contracts Friday with Jeremy Hellickson and Jeanmar Gomez, their final two arbitration-eligible players. Hellickson will earn $7 million in 2016, CSNPhilly.com reported. The Phillies acquired the 28-year-old righthander in a trade with Arizona last month to augment the starting rotation's young arms. Gomez signed a deal worth $1.4 million, according to several reports. He led all Phillies relievers with 742/3 innings in 2015. The deadline to exchange salary figures with unsigned arbitration-eligible players was Friday afternoon.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Jeremy Hellickson made his case to start on opening day by pitching five hitless innings Sunday as the Phillies rallied to top Houston, 5-4, at Bright House Field. Hellickson struck out six batters and walked three. He retired the first nine batters in order and faced just 16 batters. Hellickson ended the outing by striking out all three batters in the fifth inning. The righthander joined the Phillies in November through a trade with Arizona. The Phillies will start either the 28-year-old Hellickson or Aaron Nola when they open the season on April 4 in Cincinnati.

After enjoying strong starting pitching in the previous six games, including several lights-out efforts, the Phillies were pounded by a Washington Nationals team that looks like it means business this season. Making quick work of starter Jeremy Hellickson, the Nationals defeated the Phillies, 9-1, Friday before 22,624 at Citizens Bank Park. That snapped a modest three-game winning streak for the Phillies (5-6), while the Nationals (8-1) have won six in a row. Where are the San Diego Padres when you need them?

Mariners star Robinson Cano is expected to miss three to four weeks after breaking a toe during the Major League Baseball All-Stars tour of Japan. Seattle said Saturday that Cano will not need a cast and that the injury will heal with rest. He will likely be able to resume baseball activities in mid-December. The second baseman was hit by a pitch on the right foot during a 4-0 loss in Tokyo on Saturday. X-rays revealed a fracture in his small toe. Cano signed a $240 million, 10-year contract with the Mariners before last season.

After weeks of talks with interested teams desperate for pitching in a barren market, the Phillies reached Monday's trade deadline with the realization that they valued Jeremy Hellickson more than anyone else. By not trading the veteran pitcher, they are willing to take a $17 million risk on him. Either Hellickson nets them a high draft pick or becomes one of the highest-paid pitchers in franchise history next season. "We have some younger pitchers that are going to be approaching innings totals for the season that they have never approached before," Phillies general manager Matt Klentak said.

The objective is not to build the best farm system in baseball. The objective is to win again as soon as possible at the big-league level. In that regard, the Phillies did just fine by doing absolutely nothing at the trade deadline Monday. Pete Mackanin was thrilled to walk into a clubhouse that still had Jeremy Hellickson in it Tuesday and that's exactly how the manager should feel about his best starting pitcher through the first four months of the season. Forget about the veteran mentoring factor that Matt Klentak lauded after the general manager's first trade deadline passed without him making a move.

Two months ago, the Phillies were in Minnesota and Cesar Hernandez was banished to the bench. Manager Pete Mackanin summoned his henchman. Larry Bowa, the 70-year-old bench coach, accompanied Hernandez to a batting cage. Get on top of the ball, Bowa told him. Hit it on the ground. Keep it out of the air. Hernandez, as Mackanin remembered it, smiled at Bowa. The second baseman thought the fiery baseball lifer was kidding. Bowa made his point a little clearer in uncertain terms.

LOS ANGELES - Jeremy Hellickson threw a pitch in the fifth inning Wednesday afternoon, grabbed his back, and this is how a mediocre trip to the West Coast almost became destructive. The Phillies won as many games as they lost in California, but they will return home with some fears about their starting rotation. They beat the Dodgers, 6-2, because Freddy Galvis bashed his first homer against a lefthander in almost two years. That generated a happy flight home. It could have been worse; Hellickson left the game after the fifth with tightness in his back, but he expects to make his next scheduled start.

When the Phillies failed to move veteran starter Jeremy Hellickson at the non-waiver trade deadline, some otherwise rational people suggested that was a mistake, whatever the deal might have been, because Hellickson's presence blocked the way for the overdue promotion of Jake Thompson from Lehigh Valley. I say "otherwise rational people," but the truth is it was mostly fans communicating by posted comments and through email, the latter method often employing all capital letters. For instance: "GET HIM UP HERE NOW. " Whether those impatient for Thompson imagined a late pennant push or had simply identified the savior du jour and wanted to see the first round of miracles sooner than later is a matter of conjecture.

Jeremy Hellickson is still with the Phillies and that creates a logjam in the starting rotation if the club plans to promote prospect Jake Thompson from triple-A Lehigh Valley. Thompson, a 22-year-old righthander, has proved that he is ready for the call to the majors by posting a 1.21 ERA in his last 11 starts. To make room for him, the Phillies eventually could go to a six-man rotation, which they employed last September. General manager Matt Klentak said the team is "open-minded to anything.

Approaching baseball's non-waiver trade deadline from the high road occupied by contenders is a lot different than climbing up to it from below. The better teams have good seasons in the balance, seasons that could be improved with the right additions, but those organizations are already winners and their general managers are comfortable in their office chairs. That isn't the case for the teams that hold up the few attractive pieces of their rosters like rare produce from an otherwise fallow field, hoping desperately to get the seeds for a better harvest in return.

ATLANTA - A light rain sprinkled Turner Field, and as Jerad Eickhoff walked toward the mound Sunday afternoon for his sixth inning, umpires called for the Braves grounds crew to pull the tarp onto the field. For much of the 24-minute sun delay, the crew held the tarp straps. They waited for a storm that never arrived. It robbed Eickhoff of a chance to continue one of his better starts of the season, and it may have cost the Phillies a win. They lost, 2-1, when maligned reliever Andrew Bailey surrendered a two-run homer to Jeff Francoeur in the seventh.

ATLANTA - The last pitch Jeremy Hellickson threw - perhaps of his Phillies career - was a 90-mph fastball that Braves catcher Anthony Recker lashed to left field for a run-scoring single. As Pete Mackanin arrived to snag the ball from Hellickson in the sixth inning of a 9-5 Phillies win, there was a sense that Hellickson had done his job - on many levels. Now, the Phillies wait. Hellickson did not pitch his best game Saturday night against the worst team in baseball. His nine-start streak of pitching at least six innings ended.
