The Orioles announced tonight that they have acquired RHP JEREMY HELLICKSON and cash considerations from the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for OF HYUN SOO KIM, minor league LHP GARRETT CLEAVINGER, and International Signing Bonus Slots.

Hellickson, 30, has gone 6-5 with a 4.73 ERA (59 ER/112.1 IP) over 20 starts with the Phillies this season. Over 194 career Major League games (187 starts), he has posted a 67-63 record with a 3.98 ERA (481 ER/1087.1 IP) and 803 strikeouts. The right-hander led the Phillies in wins (12), and finished second in starts (32), innings pitched (189.0 IP), and Quality Starts (17) last season. Originally selected by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in the fourth round of the 2005 First-Year Player Draft, Hellickson won the 2011 American League Rookie of the Year Award after leading all Major League rookies in ERA (2.95), starts (29), Quality Starts (20), innings pitched (189.0), complete games (two), and opponents' batting average (.210). He was named co-winner of the AL Gold Glove Award in 2012 and went 40-36 with a 3.78 ERA (269 ER/640.0 IP) over 115 games (108 starts) in five seasons with Tampa Bay from 2010-14.
