THE PHILLIES added former first-round pick and Philadelphia native Jesse Biddle to the club's 40-man roster last night. The move isn't indicative of Biddle's chances of breaking camp with the team this spring. Instead, it's an obvious, paperwork decision the front office had to make before midnight last night. Every major league team had to set their 40-man rosters before yesterday's deadline to protect players from being selected in next month's Rule 5 draft. Biddle, 23, a Germantown Friends graduate, is ineligible for the Rule 5 draft, which will be held Dec. 11 in San Diego.

BEFORE THE clock struck midnight last night, the Phillies had a bit of in-house business to take care of: Every major league team had to make additions to their 40-man roster in preparation for next month's Rule 5 draft. Outfielder Kelly Dugan (the Phillies' first pick in 2009, in the second round) and top catching prospect Tommy Joseph were added to the 40-man roster, along with outfielder Aaron Altherr and lefthander Rob Rasmussen. The roster shuffle prevents them from being plucked away by another team in the Rule 5 draft.

DOMONIC BROWN entered this offseason eligible for arbitration for the second straight winter. The likelihood that he was going to be tendered a contract wasn't strong: Brown made $2.6 million last year, the second consecutive season when he failed to regain his status as an important young cog in the middle of the Phillies' lineup. The Phillies got ahead of the process a couple of months early. Brown, 28, an All-Star in 2013, was among four players outrighted off the 40-man roster on Monday.

This spring, the Phillies will get a close look at several minor leaguers who have played their way onto the organizational radar. Top relief prospect Justin DeFratus, first baseman Matthew Rizzotti and second baseman Harold Garcia were three of five players named to the 40-man roster yesterday. DeFratus, a hard-throwing 23-year-old who went 3-0 with 21 saves and a 1.94 ERA at Class A Clearwater and Double A Reading in 2010, has the best chance at playing his way into consideration for the Opening Day roster.

CINCINNATI - The Phillies conceded another mistake Friday when outfielder Tyson Gillies cleared waivers and was removed from the 40-man roster. Gillies, 25, will remain in the organization. This designation was a formality; Gillies was never close to reaching the majors. He was one of three players acquired in December 2009 from Seattle for Cliff Lee. The Lee trade, to this point, is a total failure. Righthander J.C. Ramirez lasted 18 games in the majors with a 7.50 ERA before being jettisoned.

The Phillies have 43 players on their 40-man roster - two on the 60-day disabled list and one suspended - and all but three have appeared in the majors at some point in their careers. A new front office billed this season as a chance to evaluate the talent it inherited before making the next wave of decisions in the rebuilding process. That phase is almost near. The overturn on the 40-man roster, starting in a few weeks when rosters are expanded for September, will be immense.

WASHINGTON - The Phillies intended for Charlie Morton to be a stabilizing force in the middle of a young rotation. But Morton carried an extensive history of injuries. And less than a month into the season, the Phillies could be without Morton for quite some time. The team declined Tuesday to detail the results of a Monday examination on Morton's strained left hamstring, only to say it did not go well. "I really don't know what the next step is," Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said.

J.P. Crawford, Nick Williams, and Andrew Knapp may eventually be the catalysts of the next Phillies revival. But this spring they are just minor-leaguers inside a major-league clubhouse. The Phillies invited more players to spring training than they have locker stalls at Bright House Field for, forcing the team to order portable lockers. They had not done that since they moved in 2004 from Jack Russell Stadium, which had a cramped clubhouse. The six extra lockers sit in the middle of the clubhouse floor, affording little privacy for some of the team's top prospects.

If Jesse Biddle is to revive his career, the Germantown Friends product is at least headed to a haven for pitching reclamation projects. The Phillies on Wednesday traded the former first-round pick to Pittsburgh for Yoervis Medina, a 27-year-old reliever. Biddle, 24, had been designated for assignment last week. He will miss the entire 2016 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery last October. As the Phillies stockpiled young pitchers, Biddle's value to his hometown organization was diminished.

Jesse Biddle, the Germantown Friends graduate and former first-round pick, was designated for assignment Friday by the Phillies in a transaction that could end the lefty's once-promising time with his hometown team. The Phillies replaced Biddle on the 40-man roster with a waiver claim - reliever Bobby LaFromboise, a 29-year-old lefthander with a 3.63 ERA in 27 career games. Biddle, 24, will miss the entire season after undergoing Tommy John surgery last October. The Phillies have 10 days to either trade, release or waive Biddle.

MATT KLENTAK added yet another pitcher and also moved three minor league prospects onto the 40-man roster Friday in anticipation for next month's Rule 5 draft. The Phillies claimed righthander A.J. Achter off waivers from the Minnesota Twins and added righthanders Jimmy Cordero, Edubray Ramos and outfielder Roman Quinn to the 40-man roster. Achter is the fourth pitcher Klentak has added to the Phillies' inventory since he became the team's general manager last month. Achter joins veteran starter Jeremy Hellickson (trade)

Starting pitchers Alec Asher RHP Asher, 23, struggled in all but one of his first seven major-league starts, and it would take a big spring for him to make next year's starting rotation. It is likely he will begin 2016 as sorely needed depth atop the triple-A rotation. Jesse Biddle LHP The former first-round pick from Germantown Friends finished his sixth minor-league season on the triple-A disabled list and is seeking a second opinion on his elbow. Next season could be make or break for the soon-to-be 24-year-old, who has yet to consistently harness his above-average pitch repertoire.

HISTORY SUGGESTS the guys who gathered in the Phillies' clubhouse yesterday evening are not The Guys. Yes, they represent the best players in the minor league system. Yes, their names are more intriguing than previous years' participants in the Phillies' annual Prospect Orientation, an event whose title has been much more accurate about the orientating part. But the complexion of a minor league system changes rapidly when a team is losing games and drafting high, so it might be best to keep the Zach Eflin and Tom Windle jerseys on layaway for now. That's not to say a handful of these guys won't go on to have solid major league careers, or that one or two won't be key contributors to the next Phillies team that isn't forecast to win 70 games.
