Hellickson throws two innings in spring debut

On a unseasonably cold and windy day in their spring home opener in Port Charlotte, the Rays drew some cheers in the top of the first inning when shortstop Sean Rodriguez made a nice backup stab of a grounder and first baseman Matt Mangini made a similar nice back-handed scoop on his throw.

Jeremy Hellickson made his spring training debut and surprised the crowd when he came out to throw the second inning. The right hander threw 22 pitches (16 for strikes), allowed one hit and hit a batter.
