Player Notes
Pirates acquired LHP Jesse Biddle from the Phillies for RHP Yoervis Medina.

Advice: This confirms reports from Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com. Once a mainstay on top 100 prospect lists, Biddle had Tommy John surgery back in October and was designated for assignment last week. The 24-year-old will miss the entire 2015 season, but Pittsburgh is known for revitalizing pitchers, so this is as good of a landing spot as he could have hoped for.

Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports that the Pirates have acquired prospect left-hander Jesse Biddle from the Phillies.

Advice: It's unclear what the Phillies will receive in return. Biddle had Tommy John surgery in October, so he'll be in rehab mode for all of 2016, but Pittsburgh is a nice landing spot for him given their penchant for turning pitchers around. While Biddle's career has veered off track, he's still just 24 years old.

Phillies designated LHP Jesse Biddle for assignment.

Advice: Biddle was the Phillies' top pitching prospect a couple years ago, but he's had two straight disappointing campaigns and underwent Tommy John surgery back in October. It seems likely that he'll clear waivers.
