Astros prospect RHP Mark Appel struck out 10 batters over eight scoreless innings on Tuesday for Double-A Corpus Christi, allowing just two hits and one walk.
The outing was the best of Appel’s career, as he set new personal bests with eight innings pitched and 10 strikeouts. The 23-year-old is finally showing the promise that made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 draft (and the No. 8 pick in 2012). Since moving up to Double-A Corpus Christi, Appel has pitched to a 3.15 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 34-10 strikeout-to-walk ratio over 34 1/3 innings (6 starts). This of course comes after he registered a dismal 9.74 ERA and allowed 10 home runs over 78 2/3 innings at High-A Lancaster. Appel will look to continue his late-season success in the Arizona Fall League. Aug 27 - 4:41 PM
