Keep an eye on this Jesse Biddle

Germantown Friends (PA) High School has this 6'5" 235-pound LHP named Jesse Biddle. And the Astros have been at a lot of his games.

He has noticed four teams in attendance at his games most regularly: the Phillies, Angels, Yankees, and Astros:
"I think those teams are the most interested in me."

Unnamed scout:
"He's a 6-5 lefthander. He's got the size everybody is looking for. He's a very genuine and competitive kid who has tremendous poise and maturity for a player his age. When watching him pitch, it's easy to see he's a team player and is willing to do whatever it takes to help his team win."

He has hit 94 on the radar gun, and threw a no-hitter last month with a mid-70s curve.

He has signed with Oregon, but could be projected as a 2nd-4th rounder, according to the article.
