Surging Arms

Elvis Araujo and Hector Neris had a great week out of the pen, combining for 6.2 scoreless innings with six strikeouts.

Severino Gonazalez also pitched well out of the bullpen this week in long relief. Gonzalez gave up just one earned run in five innings pitched with three strikeouts.

Jeremy Hellickson was the lone bright spot in the starting rotation this week. Hellickson posted a 1.80 ERA in five innings pitched with seven strikeouts against the Dodgers. Hellickson did exit the game early with some back tightness, but is expected to make his next start.
