Biddle Injury Update

Phillies lefty pitching prospect Jesse Biddle left his start for the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws on Tuesday with a right knee injury. The 19-year-old Philadelphia native said, after the game, that he has felt discomfort throughout the start, but felt a severe tightening in the joint when he ran to back up home plate after surrendering a run-scoring hit to Hickory shortstop Jurickson Profar.

Initially, Biddle stated that he would be checked out by a Phillies team physician on Wednesday or Thursday, however, Biddle informed PhoulBallz.com exclusively today that his examination has been pushed back until this coming Tuesday.

Biddle, the Phillies' top selection from the 2010 amateur draft, added that he felt fine and is able to walk around and complete daily activities with no problems. A serious structural issue is not likely, however, the Phillies will desire to receive confirmation of that before Biddle heads down to Florida to participate in off-season Instructional League ball, beginning in mid-September.

Biddle, who was named a full-season South Atlantic League All-star on Tuesday, prior to dealing with the ailment, posted a 7-8 record with a 2.98 ERA in 25 games with the BlueClaws this season.

2022 Top Phillies Prospects Countdown: #13 OF Ethan Wilson

Taken with the Phillies' second round draft pick (49th overall) last year, outfielder Ethan Wilson has landed among the top prospects in the organization. A co-freshman of the year in 2019, with South Alabama, Wilson has been on the radar of some big league teams for quite a while.  In his junior season last year, Wilson batted .313 with seven home runs and 30 RBI.  When his collegiate season was through, the lefty hitter quickly debuted in the minors.   In 30 games with Class A Clearwater last year, Wilson tallied a .215 average with three homers, 17 RBI and two steals. Listed at six-foot-one, 210-pounds, Wilson opened the 2022 campaign with Class A Advanced Jersey Shore.  The 22-year-old has been slow to start offensively, but confidence and poise are not a problem for this strong, promising individual. On the base paths, Wilson is quick and can contribute with his feet.  Defensively, the Alabama native will likely play left or right field moving forward.  Possessing an ability t

Ryan Madson is acting questionable

I've seen similar types of "poking fun" entries on other Phillies blogs. When this picture came across my desk today, I figured, "Why not...?" Ryan Madson was out on the town (Manayunk) over the weekend and was photographed acting pretty with a purse slung over his shoulder and being chummy with a friend of mine. Can I really call him a friend, if he's actually my friends' friend , and I only prank called him once? Sure, why the heck not?!
