Poor Hellboy was not feeling well yesterday when he started against the Angels.
Hellickson’s teammate David Price tweeted this after the Rays won 2-0:
Hellickson, the 2011 Rookie of the Year, said:
“First inning, I actually threw up on the mound,” said Hellickson, who noted that he threw up “five or six times” on the day. “Then I threw up in the dugout a couple of times. … Got a little light-headed later in the game.”
Zach Greinke, who was acquired by the Angels earlier this week, took the loss in his debut with LA.
Tampa Bay continues their road trip tonight with a 10:05pm ET game against the A’s. David Price will make the start against Oakland rookie A.J. Griffin who is 3-0 on the year. For more on the A’s, check out Oaktown Breakdown here on Aerys Sports.
