Tampa Bay Rays rookie Jeremy Hellickson allowed three hits and two runs in seven innings in his spot-start debut Monday. Nevertheless, he's headed back to Triple-A Durham, where he was 12-3 with a 2.45 ERA. Hellickson, added in 3.3 percent of ESPN standard leagues recently, should be back in September, and he should be really good.

Cincinnati Reds left-hander Travis Wood is in the majors for good, and he allowed two singles and no runs in seven innings in Pittsburgh on Monday. Wood remains available in 78.1 percent of leagues, despite a 2.42 ERA and 0.87 WHIP in seven starts.
