KANSAS CITY -- Injured Rays pitcher Jeremy Hellickson threw an extended bullpen session on Monday, and the plan is for him to start on Saturday against the Tigers.
"It went good. I threw 60 pitches, probably at 80, 90 percent. I felt really good," Hellickson said. "I probably threw a little more than was planned. I felt really good throwing everything, getting back on the mound, getting the feel out there."
Hellickson said he would probably throw another bullpen on Wednesday. He has been on the disabled list since June 20 with right shoulder inflammation.
