YearComment
2005 So the Expos trade Bartolo Colon for this, and Biddle goes from mediocre to terrible. They keep him around, hopefully to redeem the trade in some small sense, and this is what he gives them. Dame Fortune just kept kicking this team when it was down.
2003 In an eerily similar turn of events to 2001, Biddle started the season with Charlotte but was quickly called up to fill out an unsettled Sox pitching staff. Biddle got the job done, especially in seven spot starts in the second half, and he’ll get a bunch of innings out of the swingman spot for the Sox in 2003. Wicked facial hair, man, and, hopefully, fans in Monteal will notice now that he’s been packaged to the Expos to bring in Bartolo Colon.
2002 Does this sounds familiar? Rocky Biddle had Tommy John surgery in 1999, came back from it, then had shoulder surgery in 2001 and is expected to be back for spring training. Biddle should have opened the 2001 season at Charlotte, but the Sox had some injuries, and he had some major-league experience, so he drew the short straw. Despite some terrible stretches, he stayed in the majors all year, probably to his detriment.
2001 The Sox had six first-round picks in 1997. Rocky Biddle, a pitcher at Long Beach State, was the last of them. Last season was Biddle’s first after the Tommy John surgery that cost him 1999. He took his rehab seriously and came back throwing in the low 90s with a plus curve. He had a 27 2/3 scoreless-innings streak for the Barons before getting promoted. He’s behind Jon Garland and Kip Wells and about to be passed up by Jon Rauch. A good year in Charlotte will do wonders for his future.
