PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Right-hander Jeremy Hellickson agreed to terms on a $7 million, one-year contract with the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday to avoid salary arbitration.

The 28-year-old pitcher is coming off a 9-12 season in which he posted a 4.62 ERA in 27 starts and threw 146 innings for Arizona. He was traded by the Diamondbacks to the Phillies in November.

Hellickson bounced back with a healthy 2015. He went 1-5 with a 4.52 ERA in 13 starts in 2014 for Tampa Bay in a season that began three months late following arthroscopic surgery on his elbow. He didn’t make his first start of 2014 until July 8.
