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.

Rappers in Phillies Caps

Weekend greetings to you phine pholks out there. Today's post features pictures of rappers wearing Phillies caps. Why rappers in Phillies caps, you ask? Because... Any other questions? We will start things off properly by going with a highly recognizable hip hop star. 50 Cent stays constantly relavant by consistantly creating radio friendly material to help sell (G) units, while he "keeps it real" by still rapping about the thug life he lived before becoming the 2nd highest earning black entertainer in America. 50 is seen here in a recent interview rocking a throw-back Phillies cap. Next up we'll use a throw-back screen cap from what may be the very first major appearance by a rapper wearing Phillies gear. Chuck D, of legendary rap group Public Enemy, wore a Phillies cap in the music video for rap anthem Fight The Power in 1989. The song was the lead single from the soundtrack for Spike Lee's film Do The Right Thing . Next up we'll go with some home gro
