What the hell, Hellickson?

Recently christened GM, Matt Klentak, hasn't wasted any time bolstering the pitching staff, which was his No. 1 objective this offseason.  He already added buy-low relief help in the form of Dan Otero and James Russell, and now he's added a veteran to the rotation to soak up innings in Jeremy Hellickson.
Hellickson, the former Rookie of the Year in 2011, will turn 29 years at the beginning of next season.  The righty is projected to earn $6.6M through arbitration and is set to hit the free agent market at the end of the season. Career: 49-48, 142 G, 135 GS, 786 IP, 584 K, 3.94 ERA, 1.27 WHIP with the Tampa Bay Rays and Arizona Diamondbacks.

Pros:
*He only cost a low level prospect (Sam McWilliams).
*He's a decent fielder (won Gold Glove in 2012).
*10-47 as a batter (.213 average, better than most backup catchers).
*Is a trade deadline candidate if he has a bounce back season (coming off 4.62 ERA).
*Has decent control (2.9 BB/9)
*When he isn't pitching well, it will allow me to use the tagline "What the hell, Hellickson?"

Cons:
*Is prone to the longball.
*4.86 ERA since 2013.
*Has averaged only 5.7 innings per start since 2011.
*5.40 ERA/1.60 WHIP in 2 playoff starts (because you know the Phillies will need him in that capacity this season).

Phils sign some dudes to minor league contracts:
Emmanuel Burriss/UTL
Ryan Jackson/UTL
Frank Herrmann/RP
Chris Leroux/RP*
Reinier Roibal/RP*

* = in Phillies system last season

Roibal is an interesting case. He could 2016's version of Gomez. No ML experience but could walk on and secure a bullpen spot
