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.

Very cool. Sounds like a target at 33 if they really do like him.

Does he play any other sports? Because if he does that is exactly what Bobby Heck likes to see in pitchers (athleticism). Both Lyles and Bushue played two sports in high school. One concern would be project-ability due to the fact that he already weights 235.

He played basketball and made varsity as a freshman before he became an all-year round baseball player
