(AUDIO) Jeremy Hellickson: Getting Pulled Last Season ‘Sucked’ but My Confidence is Fine

Just one day after returning to the Rays rotation former Rookie of the Year Jeremy Hellickson joined the Booger and Ryan Show to talk about how it felt to get back out on the mound.

Hellickson said he just went out there last night and tried to give the team a chance to win. He got into a few jams but he picked himself up and his offense supported him as they usually do.

Hellickson admitted last year that he didn’t have a good season but after his surgery his arm feels much better. He doesn’t get as tight on the mound.

Hellickson said despite being pulled early in the ALDS, he still feels confident. Hellickson said “it definitely sucked” but he doesn’t second guess Joe Maddon and mentally he’s fine.

Moving forward, Hellickson said his mindset is he can absolutely make a difference. He doesn’t have to throw 8 scoreless innings because their bullpen is so strong, but he can give the team a chance to win.

Hellickson sad he listened to some postgame fans and they seemed to give up on the team when the Rays were struggling. The clubhouse just laughed that off thought and the attitude has remained positive.

Finally we asked Hellickson which athlete he would want to see in the next ESPN Body’s Issue. His answer? David Price.
