MLB pitchers and catchers start reporting to spring training this month but Des Moines-native and Hoover High alum Jeremy Hellickson won’t be throwing early at the Tampa Bay Rays camp.

Hellickson confirms to Channel 13 Sports Director Keith Murphy that he is recovering from minor arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow.

Hellickson had the surgery last week and says his recovery is going well so far. He says he expects to miss the beginning of the season.
