Tampa Bay Rays SP Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow last week and is expected to be out until mid to late May. The surgery was done to remove loose bodies from his arm in what was a minor surgery, but he's expected to miss the first six to eight weeks of the season. He went 12-10 with a 5.17 ERA in 2013. SP Jake Odorizzi will likely be counted on to fill Hellickson's rotation spot. SPs Alex Colome and Enny Romero are other options.
Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi can be a late-round flier to fill out your rotation in deeper leagues. He leans more on control, like Hellickson, so his upside is limited, at least this early in his major league career.
