Rays | Jeremy Hellickson sent to minors

The Tampa Bay Rays optioned SP Jeremy Hellickson to high Single-A Charlotte.

Fantasy Tip: Some sort of demotion was likely, but this is a bit of a wake-up call. He needs to work on aggressiveness, pitch selection and location. This could be a temporary banishment; he could move up quickly if he proves himself. Either way, Matt Moore (elbow) is expected to return within the week, so they'll cover Hellickson's rotation spot that way. It's safe to drop Hellickson in most mixed leagues, but he could come back up for a few starts in September if you're desperate.
