Jeremy Hellickson, out for the last six weeks with a shoulder injury, will make his return Monday against the Tennessee Smokies.
One of Tampa Bay's top pitching prospects, Hellickson left after two innings May 5. The right-hander has been at the Rays' extended spring training program the last 2 1/2 weeks rehabbing.
Hellickson, who is 2-1 with a 2.10 ERA in six starts this year, will be limited in his return. The Biscuits plan to piggyback Hellickson and Chris Mason in Monday's game.
