Jeremy Hellickson scratched from Friday's series opener

Philadelphia starter Jeremy Hellickson scratched from start
Jeremy Hellickson has been scratched from tonight's scheduled start as the Philadelphia Phillies are set to open a four-game set with the Atlanta Braves.

Nothing has been formally announced regarding a trade, but the weather forecast is calling for rains that potentially could cause a delay and cut Hellickson's start short.

Rather than take a chance, the Phillies are electing to go the safe route.

Jake Thompson will start in Hellickson's place for the Phillies.
