PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks have acquired right-hander Jeremy Hellickson from the Tampa Bay Rays.
In the first major move by new Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart, the Diamondbacks sent Tampa Bay two minor league prospects, infielder Andrew Velazquez and outfielder Justin Williams.
Hellickson, the American League Rookie of the Year in 2010, has a 40-36 career record in 115 appearances, 108 starts, in five seasons with the Rays.
He began the 2014 season on the disabled list and went 1-5 with a 4.52 ERA.
Stewart said at this week's general manager meetings that acquiring a starting pitcher was a top priority.
