Sunday Notes: Guyer HBPs, Appel Outing, Oakland, Replay, more

Brandon Guyer was hit by a pitch three times on Thursday, twice by David Price and once by Noe Ramirez. The Tampa Bay outfielder also had a pair of singles, reaching base a personal best five times as the Rays bested Boston 12-8. The triple HBP feat tied a MLB record.

Prospect Nation 2016: #4 RHP Mark Appel

The Astros’ decision to give up on the number one overall draft pick from 2013 could be a terrific blessing for the Phillies as righty hurler Mark Appel lands firmly among his new club’s top prospect rankings following this off-season’s trade that sent reliever Kenny Giles to Houston.

Astros players upset with Mark Appel's promotion

More than most sports, baseball is about “earning your spot.” Players have to work their way through four or five levels of the minors before getting their chance in the big leagues, and some guys wait close to 10 years before they get their shot. So it’s at least understandable when players get upset over a specific player getting the benefit of the doubt, or getting a promotion...

Report: Astros players irked by special treatment of prospect

The 24-year-old righty was just promoted to Double-A Corpus Christi despite putting up a 9.74 ERA in high Single-A ball.  That may or may not be the issue that some current Astros have with the way Houston is treating Appel at this point.

Astros players resent Mark Appel’s promotion to Double-A

Having a 9.74 ERA in the minor leagues would usually result in a pitcher being released. In Mark Appel’s case, it led to a promotion. And that has members of the Houston Astros peeved.

For the third year in a row, the No. 1 pick in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft belongs to the Houston Astros. The team selected Stanford right-hander Mark Appel a year ago and it seems all but official a hurler is going to be top dog for the third time in four seasons in 2014.

45 Prospects in 45 Days: Houston’s Mark Appel

Reporting on prospects is a somewhat dicey proposition for a self-appointed sabermetrician. The big league game is dependent upon numbers while the prospect world is dependent on scouting reports and first person accounting. So, when I report on prospects I often report of what others have said about the player. This makes life difficult because most prospects have their defenders...
