Jeremy Hellickson has re-signed with the Nationals, according to multiple reports. 

Hellickson went 5-3 with a 3.45 ERA in 19 starts for the Nats in 2018. The 31-year old gives the Nats another veteran arm at the back end of their rotation after signing Anibal Sanchez earlier in the offseason

It appears Washington's starting rotation is now set, with Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg and the newly acquired Patrick Corbin at the top, while Sanchez and Hellickson serve as the fourth and fifth starters, respectively.
