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."

Astros' Straily optioned to minors along with Appel, Aplin

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/15) The Astros announced Monday they reassigned starting pitcher Mark Appel, outfielder Andrew Aplin and starting pitcher Dan Straily to minor-league camp. Straily was competing for a spot in the team's rotation.

“At this point, we’re looking at the competition for the fifth starter, (Straily) was behind a couple other guys,” general manager Jeff Luhnow said, per the Houston Chronicle. “Did a nice job yesterday. It’s always tough to send a guy out after he pitched well, but we looked at the set of circumstances that would lead to him being that fifth starter, and we really feel like he’s a starter, so we would want him to go to Triple-A and be prepared. What we told him was the truth: we typically need eight-plus starters during the season, and he’s on that list and he’ll probably pitch in Houston this year.”

Astros P Mark Appel throws three hitless innings against Yankees

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/21/15) Astros pitching prospect Mark Appel pitched in only his second Grapefruit League game this spring. Against the Yankees, Appel threw three hitless innings, striking out two and walking one batter.

"It's a lot of fun being able to pitch against the New York Yankees," Appel said. "As a kid, I never thought I'd be able to say that. It's pretty cool."

Appel talked about calming down and becoming more relaxed on the mound.

"As far as how my last couple of outings have been, I feel like I get a little overexcited in the first, which is fine," Appel said. "It's Spring Training and sitting in the bullpen for a while, you want to get your juices flowing a little bit. That's kind of where my mindset was. I think I kind of took a deep breath after I got one or two outs in the first and from there I felt pretty comfortable in the second and third inning."

The right-hander was pleased with his performance on Saturday and he is getting more comfortable when pitching.

"My slider, I was able to throw it for a strike when I needed to and throw it in the dirt," he said. "They took some good approaches, took a few of them that I thought were pretty good pitches. I threw one or two good changeups. I didn't really need to go to it too much, but got one of the strikeouts on a changeup. I got a first-pitch strike for a changeup. I'm doing things I feel like I need to do to keep moving in the right direction."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Appel was getting a late start to the spring after experiencing mild tightness in his right forearm. He was able to throw a bullpen session Wednesday without issue, setting him up to make his spring debut Monday. Appel went 1-2 with a 3.69 ERA and 38:13 K:BB ratio in 39 innings with Double-A Corpus Christi last season.
