It's unclear what the Phillies will receive in return.

Phillies pitching prospect Jesse Biddle will seek a second opinion on his left elbow.

"There’s some concern about his elbow," Phillies interim general manager Scott Proefrock said. Biddle had a 4.95 ERA through 24 minor league starts this year before being shut down with arm soreness. Biddle was once a top prospect for the team, but now it's a question when -- or if -- he'll ascend to the big club.
