Brewers' Phil Bickford: Has surgery for broken hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bickford (suspension) underwent surgery for two fractures in his hand and will be sidelined for 8-to-12 weeks, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Bickford, who is serving a 50-game suspension for testing positive for a drug of abuse twice, suffered the injury in extended spring training when he was hit by a comebacker. He is expected to serve out the rest of his suspension and then head to the disabled list, making him eligible to play once he is healthy.

Brewers' Phil Bickford: Suspended 50 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bickford was suspended for 50 games after testing positive for a drug of abuse for the second time, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Bickford also tested positive for marijuana prior to the 2015 draft, so the penalty increased to 50 games now that he committed his second offense. Formerly one of the Giants' top prospects, the right-hander wasn't nearly as dominant in five starts in the Brewers system as he was during his time in the Giants organization, and this situation only erodes his prospect shine a bit more. There's no denying his strong ability to strike batters out (10.1 K/9 last season), but his makeup will need to improve if he wants to remain in high standing with the Brewers.

Brewers' Phil Bickford: Traded to Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bickford was traded to the Brewers on Monday as part of the deal that sent Will Smith to the Giants, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Bickford, one of the Giants' top prospects and the 18th pick in the 2015 draft, has had a fantastic season, posting a 2.71 ERA with 105 strikeouts in 93 innings between Low-A and High-A. He'll now become the Brewers' top prospect. He pitched an inning in the Futures game for the USA team, striking out two batters. Andrew Susac was also acquired by the Brewers in the deal.

Giants' Phil Bickford: Strikes out 13 in High-A debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bickford, 20, fanned 13 batters in six innings in his debut for High-A San Jose on Sunday. The 6-foot-4 righty allowed two earned runs on two hits. He did not walk anybody.

Bickford saw little resistance at Low-A prior to being promoted. He notched a 2.70 ERA and 69:15 K:BB in 60 innings. Opposing batters hit just .220 against him. With massive strikeout potential, Bickford is certainly worth a stash in deeper keeper leagues.
