Mark Appel, Carlos Correa among Astros' non-roster invites

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/13/15) The Astros announced Tuesday they will have 17 non-roster invites for spring training, including starting pitcher prospect Mark Appel and shortstop prospect Carlos Correa. Appel was the No. 1 pick in the 2013 MLB draft, while Correa was the No. 1 pick in 2012.

The other non-roster invitees are outfielder Andrew Aplin, pitcher Darin Downs, infielder Matt Duffy, catcher Luis Flores, infielder Nolan Fontana, catcher Tyler Heineman, pitcher Jordan Jankowski, infielder Dan Johnson, infielder Colin Moran, catcher Roberto Pena, infielder Gregorio Petit, pitcher Brady Rodgers, infielder Joe Sclafani, pitcher Jason Stoffel and outfielder Preston Tucker.

Correa (No. 1) and Appel (No. 2) are considered the team's top two prospects, according to Baseball America. Moran (No. 7) is also considered a top-10 prospect.

Astros feel Appel, Correa talented enough to skip Triple-A

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/14) Astros general manager Jeff Lunhow said Tuesday shortstop prospect Carlos Correa and starting pitcher prospect Mark Appel are talented enough to skip Triple-A, according to the Houston Chronicle. However, it's not a given they will bypass Triple-A before reaching the majors.

Appel finished his first full season in the minors in Double-A last season. Correa finished his first full season in high Class A.

Mark Appel tosses five scoreless innings in Double-A debut

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/31/14) Astros starting pitcher prospect Mark Appel shined in his debut for Double-A Corpus Christi Wednesday. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 MLB draft tossed five scoreless innings, allowing two hits and four walks, while recording four strikeouts.

"I thought it was a good outing," Astros senior pitching advisor Doug Brocail, who's serving as interim pitching coach at Corpus Christi, told MLB.com. "He went out and stuck with the game plan. He has some work to do, but he threw up five zeroes. I'll take zeros any way we can get them."

Mark Appel earns promotion to Double-A

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/27/14) After arguably throwing his best performance of the season Thursday, the Astros announced Sunday that starting pitcher prospect Mark Appel, who was the No. 1 pick in the 2013 MLB draft, has been promoted from Class A Lancaster to Double-A Corpus Christi.

Appel went 2-5 with a 9.74 ERA and .372 opponents' batting average in 12 starts for Lancaster. In his last start, he allowed two runs on five hits in six innings, while striking out seven.

Mark Appel finally shows signs of life in Class A

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/25/14) Astros pitching prospect Mark Appel finally showed a flash of brilliance Thursday, as he worked his way through the best start of his season at Class A Lancaster.

Appel, who entered the start with a 10.80 ERA in 11 starts, tossed a season-long six innings while using just 74 pitches, according to the Houston Chronicle. Appel allowed two runs on five hits in his six innings of work while striking out a season-high seven batters in the game. Lancaster manager Rodney Liranes said it was the best outing he has seen from Appel.

"I was really, really impressed," Linares said. "He still had something in the tank to go back out, but it was just such a great outing and a good game that I wanted to stop it right there and start from there for the next time."

Appel still has a 9.74 ERA in 44 1/3 innings of work for the season, while allowing 15 hits and 1.8 home runs per nine innings. He has 40 strikeouts and 11 walks in 44 1/3 innings on the season.
