Hellickson hauls in Gold Glove

Former Biscuits pitcher Jeremy Hellickson has been named the co-winner of an American League Gold Glove. Hellickson is the second pitcher to win a Rookie of the Year and a Gold Glove. Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Fernando Valenzuela (1982 NL rookie, 1986 Gold Glove) was the first. It's the third time the Biscuits have had an alumnus win a Gold Glove. Third baseman Evan Longoria was on 2009-10. Hellickson shares the award with Jake Peavy of the Chicago White Sox. Peavy is a Mobile native. Former Biscuits outfielder Desmond Jennings, also with the Rays, was a Gold Glove nominee.
