Hellickson's stock is up after solid year

Nobody would have pegged Jeremy Hellickson as a candidate for a qualifying offer last year, but that's the case after he's gone 12-10 with a 3.78 ERA for the Phillies. It's likely that he turns the offer down for a more lucrative deal on the open market. Bowden: FA value watch (Insider)

Jerad Eickhoff surpassed expectations

Keith Law once pegged Eickhoff as a back-end starter at best, but the 26-year-old's increased use of his curveball gives him the potential to be more of a No. 3 guy at the major league level. Law: Players I was wrong about (Insider)
