Louisville, KY-- The Rays' Jeremy Hellickson took a big step backwards Tuesday in his rehab from elbow surgery. On a 75-pitch limit, Hellickson pitched 2 and 2/3 innings against AAA Louisville. He allowed 7 runs, 4 earned, on 12 hits.
The Rays were looking at Hellickson possibly returning to the rotation on June 27 in Baltimore. Now, that may be delayed.
