Biddle was optioned to Double-A Mississippi on Wednesday, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The embattled hurler pitched well in his spring debut Saturday, striking out a batter in a lone scoreless frame, but given that he hasn't appeared in a regular season game since 2015, it comes as no surprise that he'll head to the minors for more seasoning. However, Biddle very well could compete for a spot in the major league bullpen sometime during the season if he performs well in the minors.
