Mark Appel signs with Astros

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 01:51 PM CDT
From the Astros past to their future-- the first overall pick in the most recent draft. Pitcher Mark Appel is official signed. The right-hander out of Stanford and the Astros reportedly agreed to a signing bonus around 6 to 6.5 million. The 6-foot-4-inch, 195 pounder will be part of the Astros rebuilding and a big piece to their future. Appel's Major League career will begin in single A, but the Astros wouldn't be surprised if he was at double A Corpus Christi by the end of the year. For Appel, it's nice to be the No. 1 pick and the newest Houston Astro.Mark Appel signs with Astros
