Astros #1 Pick Appel Expected to Join Hooks Later This Season

HOUSTON (Kiii Sports) - The Houston Astros signed #1 draft pick Mark Appel on Wednesday. The 6-5 righthander from Stanford University grew up in Houston as an Astros fan.

As the #1 overall pick in the draft, Appel did not come cheap. The Astros will pay him a $6.35 million bonus. He is expected to start his pro career with Tri Cities class A team. Astros GM Jeff Luhow is not ruling out a stint with the Corpus Christi Hooks sometime in late August.
