Some leftovers from yesterday…

  • First round pick Mark Appel had a rough game yesterday in his second postseason start. He allowed 5 earned runs in 4 innings in what ended up being an awful 17-1 loss to Florida State. Appel completely lost his control late in his outing – he walked five (two with the bases loaded), hit two batters, and threw a wild pitch. His college season will end this weekend unless Stanford takes two in a row from FSU.
  • Bad outing from Appel, but one rough start (against the third-ranked team in the nation) doesn’t change anything in regards to his value or negotiations.
  • Appel hasn’t even said anything about being drafted by the Pirates, but a few other draft picks have already agreed to terms with the team.
  • It turns out that Jeff Karstens didn’t hurt his groin in his rehab start Thursday…he strained his hip flexor instead. He’s day to day…no word yet on whether or not he’ll make another rehab start in AAA, but that would be my guess at the moment.
  • Jose Tabata was caught stealing (badly) last night and appeared to be limping again. Why can’t he just go to the DL?
  • Here’s the game recap from last night.
