Starting Pitcher Jeremy Hellickson

Jeremy Hellickson signed a $17.2 million qualifying offer last offseason after his nice performance in 2016. He will become an unrestricted free agent after the season and, at 29, could be the veteran anchor this rotation needs to compete for the long haul.

That is, if he is not traded first. As is the nature with a rebuilding process, nearly every player on a one year deal this year could be dealt come the trade deadline and Hellickson is no exception.
