Astros | Mark Appel taking it slow

Thu, 06 Mar 2014 16:27:41 -0800

Houston Astros SP Mark Appel (appendix) is being brought along slowly as he recovers from an appendectomy last month, and he's yet to face hitters in live batting practice. He's thrown off a mound a couple of times in camp. "Everything feels good," said Appel, taken with the No. 1 overall pick out of Stanford last year. "They're taking some precautions after the appendectomy. The training staff wants me to be 100 percent healthy before I start pitching live. I'm taking it slow, just playing catch day by day. I'm kind of building up again after taking a break."

Astros | Mark Appel makes pro debut

Fri, 05 Jul 2013 18:01:11 -0700

Houston Astros SP Mark Appel made his professional debut Friday, July 5, for Class A Tri-City, allowing two runs and three hits with one strikeout in two innings. His first pro pitch was hit over the center fielder's head for a triple, but he settled down somewhat after the uneven start. He needed just seven pitches for a perfect inning in the second before departing. He threw 19 of his 26 pitches for strikes. A scout at the stadium had Appel's velocity a little higher than the stadium gun, registering at 94-95 mph.
