Jeremy Hellickson was solid in his first rehab start Saturday night for High-A Charlotte tossing three scoreless innings allowing two hits and a walk with two strikeouts.

Hellickson, who is working his way back from right-elbow surgery he had back in January to "clean up loose bodies," threw 38 pitches, 25 for strikes in his successful first minor league rehab start. Reports are that he will make two more rehab starts then be considered to return to the big league club. Under that schedule, Hellickson could be back as early around two weeks from the day of this rehab start.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
