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. 

Astros GM: Mark Appel's wrist not a concern
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/14/14) Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said pitching prospect Mark Appel, who has a 9.57 ERA at Class A Lancaster, is healthy. "He had a wrist issue a few weeks ago but it's behind him now," Luhnow told the Houston Chronicle.

The No. 1 overall pick last year, Appel received a cortisone shot in his wrist recently, his agent said.

Mark Appel scratched with thumb issues
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/5/14) Astros pitcher Mark Appel has been scratched with thumb tendinitis, according to MLB.com.

Appel was set to start Thursday, but he was scratched. He's expected to miss one start due to the injury. Appel has had a rough season thus far. An appendectomy set him back during the spring, forcing him to miss the beginning of the season. Over five games, he's posted an 11.93 ERA in Class A.
