Hellickson's future unclear beyond fourth rehab start

Hellickson's future unclear beyond fourth rehab start

ST. PETERSBURG -- Jeremy Hellickson will make his fourth rehab start Sunday in Durham for the Triple-A Bulls.

The right-hander is scheduled to throw six innings or 90 pitches. And if that goes well...

"That goes well," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "There's nothing beyond that right now. We'll play that out and see how it goes."

Hellickson, who is in the home stretch from January right elbow surgery, made his third rehab start Tuesday while pitching for Triple-A Durham at Louisville (Reds). He allowed seven runs (three earned) on 12 hits in 2 2/3 innings.

"I'm ready to get some guys out," said Hellickson, who will fly to Durham on Saturday.
