The Phil Bickford Story has certainly had its plot twists for a career that hasn’t seen a pitch thrown above A-ball. Twice a first-rounder after a stint at two colleges (and an amazing summer on the Cape), would see him excel across two levels of the minors in 2016. That sure is a lot of twos.
So, it should come as no surprise that Phil Bickford was suspended for a drug of abuse (meaning recreational). It’s the — you guessed it — second time Bickford has failed a league sanctioned drug test.
