Astros prospect Mark Appel off to strong start at Double-A

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/24/15) Astros pitcher Mark Appel appears to be living up his draft status over three starts at Double-A.

Appel was the No. 1 overall pick of the 2013 draft and is 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA over three starts in the minors, reports the Houston Chronicle.

Dan Straily, Sam Deduno, Mark Appel provide Astros starting depth

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/14/15) The Astros have plenty of depth for the starting rotation, both in the bullpen and in the minor leagues. 

Asher Wojciechowski, sent to Triple-A on Tuesday, has pitched out of the rotation and bullpen. 

"Obviously one of the things that we’ve liked during the competition this spring is we liked our depth," manager A.J. Hinch said, per the Houston Chronicle. "There are other guys behind them as well. I think the continual pressure on these guys to pitch well and do well is going to be there with guys like Dan Straily and obviously Mark Appel’s at Double-A. ... With Wojo now at Triple-A, he’s always a possibility. Sam Deduno in the bullpen is always a possibility. I think these guys always know they’re pitching for their spot. ... They know there are options."

Luhnow: Astros won't hesitate to call up Correa, Appel from Double-A

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/9/15) Astros prospects Carlos Correa and Mark Appel will begin the 2015 season at Double-A Corpus Christi, but they might not need a stint at Triple-A Fresno before making it to The Show.

"We're not going to hesitate to bring them straight up from Double-A if the need arises," general manager Jeff Luhnow told MLB Network Radio on Thursday.

Correa and Appel are ranked as the Astros' top prospects by MLB.com and Baseball America.

Astros pitcher Mark Appel to start year in Double-A Corpus Christi

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/1/15) Astros pitching prospect Mark Appel is expected to begin the season with Double-A Corpus Christi, reports the Houston Chronicle.

Appel, who was the team's 2013 No. 1 pick, has yet to pitch in the majors.

Astros' Luhnow: Mark Appel on good trajectory coming off down year

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/15) Astros starting pitcher prospect Mark Appel will likely begin the season in the rotation for Double-A Corpus Christi, per MLB.com. Appel was reassigned to minor-league camp Monday after allowing two runs on five hits and three walks, while striking out five in seven innings this spring.

The Astros liked what they saw from Appel, who was the No. 1 pick in the 2013 MLB Draft, coming off a down season in the minors in 2014.

"He's on a good trajectory right now after a down season last year," general manager Jeff Luhnow said, per MLB.com. "He ended the season strong and had a good [Arizona] Fall League and a good camp, and he's exactly where we need him to be. He's one of the top major-league starting prospects in the game, and I expect he's going to be in Houston and be close to or at the top of our rotation for many years to come."
