ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP)
The injury occurred in the third inning of Saturday night's game. The Rays announced that Hellickson has a bruised shin and that X-rays were negative.
Hellickson, who had missed his previous two starts because of right shoulder inflammation, was pulled following a couple warmup tosses after being checked by a team trainer.
J.P. Howell replaced Hellickson.
