Jeremy Hellickson made an appearance with the Stone Crabs on August 26, 2010. He was sent to the Stone Crabs from the Rays while they were transitioning him from a starter to a reliever. In his one appearance, he allowed 4 runs on 4 hits with 4 strikeouts and 2 walks in 1 2/3 innings. Following the outing, he was promoted back to Tampa Bay where he joined the Rays bullpen for the remainder of the season.
Hellickson was the Rays fourth round pick in the 2005 draft. Since signing with the team, he has dominated at every level of professional baseball. He made his professional debut with the Princeton Rays in 2005. In 2006 he was promoted to the Hudson Valley Renegades where he was named the Renegades pitcher of the year and was a New York-Penn League All-Star. He spent 2007 with Columbus. In 2008 he split time between the Vero Beach Devil Rays and Montgomery Biscuits, being named the Vero Beach Pitcher of the Year and being named to the Florida State League All-Star team. He began the 2009 season with the Biscuits and then was promoted to the Durham Bulls to finish the season. He continued to dominate on the mound and was promoted to Rays in late 2010, compiling a 4-0 record as a starter for the Rays. The organization worked to convert Hellickson to a reliever for the stretch run, so he was sent to the Stone Crabs for a one game assignment out of the bullpen before returning to the Rays on September 1, 2010.
