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.

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.

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.

The best starter available in this winter's free-agent class has made one start since July 7 because of a blister on his left middle finger. The next best is a 29-year-old righthander with a career 3.92 ERA and will require the surrender of a draft pick to sign. There's a 43-year-old Dominican whose fastball cannot crack 90 mph and a 30-year-old Texan who throws much harder but cannot command it. It is a historically bad market for starting pitchers at a time when pitching has never been more expensive to acquire.

WASHINGTON - Odubel Herrera entered Sunday with 56 strikeouts in his last 57 games. He has walked just 16 times in that span as his batting average and on-base percentage have reached season lows. It is hard to believe this is the same hitter who started the season with one of baseball's most patient approaches. "I don't really know what has changed - all that I know is that before, it was easier for me to be selective," Herrera said through an interpreter. "It was easier for me to identify good pitches from bad pitches.

Third baseman Maikel Franco was out of the Phillies starting lineup Friday night at Citizens Bank Park against the Miami Marlins, and it had nothing to do with a recent thumb injury Manager Pete Mackanin said Franco needed a break because his swing was out of sync. "The poor guy is scuffling," Mackanin said before the game. "He is swinging wild again. " A sore right thumb recently caused Franco to miss three full games and have just one plate appearance in two others. He returned to the starting lineup Monday against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

WASHINGTON - It has been a little more than 13 months since the Phillies acquired Jerad Eickhoff, and the word that is used so often to describe the pitcher continues to be bulldog.   His triple-A manager labeled Eickhoff as one last summer before the righthander joined the Phillies. His teammates have called him one, and manager Pete Mackanin is always quick to use the term. Eickhoff lived up to his billing Saturday night as he gritted out six shutout innings in a 3-0 Phillies loss to Washington at Nationals Park.

MIAMI - Aaron Altherr and Odubel Herrera tossed their batting helmets after the eighth inning of a 6-0 loss to Miami and handed them to their base coaches. Another rally came up empty and two more runners were left stranded Wednesday night. The Phillies left seven runners on base, including players on second and third base in both the first and third innings. They went 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position, struck out 13 times and hit into two double plays. They could not get a key hit. The Phillies were shut out for the ninth time this season and the second time this month as they mustered just four hits.

MIAMI - Aaron Altherr's return from the disabled list last month could not have started any better as he homered in two of his first five games. But his struggles since serve as a reminder that his recovery from wrist surgery will not be as easy as Altherr first made it look. The outfielder - who was not in the lineup on Tuesday night against Miami - is batting just .221 with a .301 on-base percentage and four homers in 131 at-bats. He has struck out 42 times in 34 games after missing the season's first four months.

Jeanmar Gomez handed the ball to Pete Mackanin on Friday night and shuffled into the Phillies dugout. An 8-4 loss to Atlanta at Citizens Bank Park was all but finished as Gomez imploded in the ninth inning. He allowed four runs and did not retire any of the four batters he faced, prompting the Phillies manager to head to the mound. The Phillies did not score after the second inning and their ninth-inning meltdown appeared to be inevitable. It was almost expected that the Phillies bullpen - which is as thin as a unit can be - would eventually yield a run. Freddie Freeman tagged Gomez for an RBI double and Matt Kemp followed with a run-scoring single.

NEW YORK - The only good news to come out of the 12-1 beatdown by the Mets on Saturday night is that the Phillies are one day closer to finishing August. The month has been unforgiving to the starting rotation as the unit seems to be fading as the season winds down. Jeremy Hellickson allowed five runs in four innings to bring the rotation's ERA to 7.26 in 22 August games. It is the team's worst month since June 2006, when the starting pitchers registered a 7.36 ERA, and second worst since a 7.20 ERA in July 1961.

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.
