Hellickson makes progress in rehab

Biscuits pitcher Jeremy Hellickson threw two innings earlier this week at extended spring training. The Rays want him up to four innings before he'll return to Montgomery and the starting rotation. He's been out with a shoulder injury.

Two moves this week involving local players. Grady native Wesley Wright returned to the majors when the Astros called him up from Triple-A Round Rock. Andalusia's Tyler Wilson, recently released by the Atlanta Braves, has signed with the independent Pensacola Pelicans.

Former Troy star and Enterprise native Adam Godwin is in the lineup tonight and hitting ninth for Chattanooga.

WSFA is Webcasting the game, so check for that.
