2017 FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE DEADLINE FALLOUT: O'S ADD JEREMY HELLICKSON SIMPLY TO EAT INNINGS

The Baltimore Orioles made a move late Friday by picking up veteran pitcher Jeremy Hellickson from the dismantling Philadelphia Phillies for outfielder Hyun-Soo Kim, LHP Garrett Clevinger, and international bonus money.  Hellickson is being brought over simply to eat some innings for the Orioles whose rotation has been a complete joke this season and so there is nothing really to discuss here from a fantasy baseball angle.  Hellickson has had some SP 5 value during his stay with the Phillies but it has not come this year as he has pitched to a nasty 4.73 ERA and struck out just 65 batters in 112.1 innings.  Going from the NL to the AL should do even more damage to the ratios.
