Right-hander Jeremy Hellickson?accepted the Philadelphia Phillies $17.2 million qualifying offer on Monday.Hellickson was one of 10 players to receive qualifying offers from their teams. Monday was the deadline for players to either accept or reject the offers.New York Mets second baseman Neil Walker was the only other player to accept the qualifying offer.Eight other free agents did not accept the offers from their former teams by Mondays 5 p.m. ET deadline: outfielders Jose Bautista (Blue Jays), Yoenis Cespedes (Mets), Ian Desmond (Rangers), Dexter Fowler (Chicago Cubs) and Mark Trumbo (Orioles), designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion (Blue Jays); closer Kenley Jansen (Los Angeles Dodgers); and third baseman Justin Turner (Dodgers).Hellickson said at the end of this season that, although he had hoped to sign a multiyear contract this offseason, hed love to be back next year with the Phillies.Its not the stability I wanted, but its a lot of money for one year, Hellickson told The News Journal in a telephone interview. I believe in myself to go out there and have another good year, even a better year and put myself in position to get the stability in the next offseason.He told the newspaper that he received interest from several teams, but those clubs were reluctant to part with a first-round draft pick to sign him. Aside from teams picking in the first 10 slots of the draft, teams forfeit a first-round pick if they sign a player who has received a qualifying offer. Teams in the top 10 forfeit their second-highest pick.Hellickson said he considered rejecting the qualifying offer, but changed his mind because of the draft pick restrictions associated with signing him.Ive been playing six years to get to this point and its just unfortunate that free agents like myself have this first-round pick attached to us, Hellickson told The News Journal. It sucks.The guys that are free agents this year, its tough for me to not laugh at people who say this is a weak free-agent market, he continued. Its tough with the uncertainty of the market right now to turn down that much money for one year, especially for a team I enjoyed playing for and a city I love playing for.Hellickson, 29, was 12-10 with a 3.71 ERA last season. He tied career highs with 32 starts and 189 innings pitched and struck out a career-best 154 batters, while walking just 45.His 12 victories were the most by a Phillies pitcher last season.The Phillies acquired Hellickson in a 2015 trade with the Arizona Diamondbacks.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Instead of dwelling on the negative, Oates focused on what was good about the clubs recent play. It worked.Tottenham have told their Supporters Trust (THST) they are reconsidering plans to raise ticket prices next season. Spurs announced in January 2015 that season tickets for 2016-17 would see an average increase of less than 2 per cent, whilst freezing juniors and senior citizens tickets for a fourth successive year.But after Liverpool fans forced their owners to back down over increases by walking out of Anfield in their thousands last weekend, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy indicated to the THST this week that they had not yet made a decision on next seasons prices. In a positive, scheduled meeting with senior Spurs executives, the THST board also urged Levy to clarify the clubs position on a proposed countrywide price cap for away tickets, widely recommended at £30.Levy questioned the principle of prices being set centrally, asking for an example of another industry that did the same, and expressed concern that a home ticket price cap would be next on the agenda.The Spurs chairman also projected that a ceiling on ticket revenue would be very harmful to the clubs financial modelling of their new £400m stadium development at Northumberland Park.Levy did recognise that the cost of attending away matches was too high and he is in favour of heavily subsidising travel, which the club have done several times this season. Tottenham are in the early stages of their Northumberland Park development But Kat Law, co-chair of THST, told Sky Sports News HQ: Given the money flooding into the game, THST can see no justification for any price rise for home tickets at Tottenham next season.Fans bear enough of a financial burden without being asked tto dig deeper still.ddddddddddddTHST also urges THFC to work with other Premier League clubs to finally agree on a mechanism that will deliver substantial savings to away fans in time for next season.Spurs head coach Mauricio Pochettino was asked about the ongoing ticketing issue in his pre-match news conference ahead Super Sundays clash with Manchester City on Sky Sports 1HD.And he said: Its a good point, because we come from Spain and empty stadiums. Our feeling is to keep the full stadium. The supporters are very important and I think Tottenham are very sensible about that.
