Phillies want Jesse Biddle to 'fill the strike zone better'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Phillies pitching coach Bob McClure said that pitching prospect Jesse Biddle is still growing as a pitcher but needs to trust his stuff, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

"I want to see him fill the zone up," he said. "He's got too good of stuff to be picking or fooling around. He's got three major-league pitches, and I'd like to see him fill the zone up better. It's too many balls, too many high pitches."

McClure added that Biddle's goal this season should be to become a "strike-throwing machine."

Biddle made 16 starts for Double-A Reading in 2014, going 3-10 with a 5.05 ERA and 80:44 K:BB ratio in 82 innings.

Phillies still hopeful Jesse Biddle will develop into MLB starter
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Phillies pitching coach Bob McClure has been impressed early on in camp with starting pitcher prospect Jesse Biddle, according to CSNphilly.com.

“Very impressive,” McClure said. “When you have that type of arm and you see a guy be able to control everything, it’s fun to watch. Of course, it’s not to Cliff Lee or Cole Hamels yet, but I mean, you can see it getting there someday possibly if he goes about everything right. It’s impressive to watch. The accuracy, the flow, how easy it was just to throw that hard. It looks really good.”

Biddle is coming off a down year in 2014, which included taking time off for what general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. termed a "mental break, and is no longer considered one of the Phillies' top prospects.

However, the team remains hopeful he will be able to bounce back.

“I think it’s an important year for him because last year was a tough one and he’s got some things to overcome,” Amaro said. “But if and when he does, he’s going to be a quality product.

“We love his stuff. We think he’s got a chance to be a very productive major-league pitcher. It’s just a matter of getting back on track."

Phillies prospect Jesse Biddle headed for MRI on elbow injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Phillies starting pitcher prospect Jesse Biddle is headed to Philadelphia for an MRI on his sore elbow. Biddle was playing winter ball in Puerto Rico.

"We don't believe it's anything serious. We just have to be cautious," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said, per the Philadelphia Daily News.

Biddle, who entered last season as a top-100 prospect, struggled in 2014. He went 5-10 with a 4.58 ERA in 19 starts between three levels in the minors, and was even placed on the inactive list for a bit at Double-A Reading.
