Philadelphia Phillies SP Jesse Biddle (undisclosed) has been placed on the temporary inactive list and will not make his next scheduled start for Double-A Reading Sunday, June 29. "I'm miserable out there," Biddle said. "I'm very unhappy and I don't know why. Nothing feels fluid out there. Nothing feels natural."
