    That line by Biddle

    Within two years our rotation is going to have 4 lefties... Hamels, Lee, Morgan, Biddle

    I wouldn't be so sure Lee is on the roster in two years...if we are under .500 by the deadline either of the next two season I could easily see us trading Lee for specs, especially since he has always been one of the hotter names come trade time.

    A Lee trade is quite possible, but he can only be dealt to 9 teams. I can't see the Phillies trading him without receiving a top prospect and most of the money remaining on his contract. And I can't see any team with top prospects trading one for that contract.

    All that said, I have dreams of landing Profar with a Lee+ offer. Pipe dreams...

    It's also worth noting that probabilistically, one of Morgan or Biddle will flame out due to injuries or ineffectiveness. So don't count your lefties before they hatch.

    Hey... We have a total number of bright spots that I can count on one hand in our farm system currently. Don't rain on my parade A-Team

    I'm very excited to see how his season progresses and whether or not the Phils push him to AAA at some point. I would assume to delay FA and Arbitration, we won't see Biddle in the rotation until September 2014 at the earliest. The Phils don't have a great history in terms of challenging their guys quickly, although Joe Jordan seems to have changed the philosophy a bit this year.

    Updated Top 5

    1. SP Biddle (L) - AA
    2. SS Quinn (S) - SA
    3. SP Morgan (L) - AAA
    4. C Joseph (R) - AAA
    5. 3B Franco (R) - A

    Franco and Morgan both on the rise with good/great starts, with Quinn and Joseph both struggling somewhat so far.

    Biddle with another strong outing yesterday

    6.0 IP 1H 3BB 10K 0ER

    Besides his second outing of the season in which he gave up 5R (4ER) to Boston's AA team, he's given up 2ER in 25.0 IP.

    Overall in his 31 IP this season he's given up 6 ER , 12H, 12BB () and 40 Ks.

    yeah his WHIP is ridiculous right now. Just funny that he gave up as many walks as hits so far.

    Sounds promising, what about Tocci?

    He's struggling, but that's to be expected. His skill set remains very promising.

    Tocci's problems at this point pretty much have to do with age/weight. He is extremely young for the level he is at, and his body is nowhere close to being fully developed. As a result, he has struggled with his power numbers. I'm not sure what the consensus on his frame is, but we have to assume he is going to put on some weight being 6'2".

    Phillies prospect Jesse Biddle was chosen as the Eastern League pitcher of the week (April 22-28) after two strong starts for the Double-A Reading Fightin Phils.

    Biddle allowed two hits and no runs over two starts, striking out 26 and walking five in 13 innings. Sixteen of his strikeouts came in an April 22 win over Harrisburg in which he threw seven shutout innings. He established a Reading modern-era record (since 1998) for strikeouts, topping the 13 strikeouts record by Randy Wolf (1999) and Adam Walker (2001).

    Another guy to watch:

    Aaron Altherr (still only 22)

    92 ABs .348/.413/.576 3 HRs 6 for 6 in SB.

    in 420 ABs last season he hit 8 HR
    in 416 ABs in 2011 he hit 6 HR.

    He has 3 so far. Would be nice to see him develop his power potential. He should be moved up to AA some time this season.

    He's a Dom Brown type prospect. Supposedly he needs to make some mechanical adjustments if he wants to succeed at higher levels.
