Astros | Mark Appel nearing deal?
Houston Astros P Mark Appel, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 First Year Player Draft, isn't subject to the July 12 signing deadline that other players are, which means he could make negotiations difficult for his new pro team. The organization and Appel are nearing a deal, according to sources, and one source expects him to sign by the middle of next week.
Fantasy Tip: That'd be fantastic news for fantasy owners in keeper leagues. When a Scott Boras client is involved, there isn't often much certainty. Hopefully, nothing delays the start of the promising right-hander's pro career.
