The Philadelphia Phillies have scratched starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson on Friday night. In his place, the team elected to start Jake Thompson against the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park in South Philadelphia.

The 30-year-old is being linked to the Boston Red Sox. They put ace David Price on the 10-day disabled list on Friday.

His injury may force the team's hand at the trade deadline.

Other teams may also be in play. With Philadelphia scratching him from the start, a deal may be imminent.

Hellickson has been with the Phillies for the past year and a half. With Philadelphia already out of playoffs contention, general manager Matt Klentak will try to deal his veterans, as the team continues to rebuild.

Wherever he goes, it'll be his fourth team in his career. He's also played for the Tampa Bay Rays and the Arizona Diamondbacks.

He's 6-5 this season with a 4.73 ERA in 20 starts. Hellickson also struck out 65 and walked 30 in 112 1/2 innings.

In his career, he has a 67-63 record with a 3.98 ERA in 1,087 1/3 innings. He has appeared in a 194 games with a 187 starts.
