Phillies' Mark Appel: Undergoes season-ending surgery to remove bone spur
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Appel underwent season-ending surgery Wednesday to remove a bone spur from his elbow, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Wednesday's surgery puts an already injury-filled 2016 campaign to an end as he had already endured some shoulder issues in addition to the bone spur on his elbow. Gelb reports that Appel should be ready by the time spring training gets underway, but he'll by 25 by that time, so the clock will be ticking for him to deliver on his potential. Prior to landing on the disabled list this season, Appel posted a 4.46 ERA with a 1.57 WHIP in 38.1 innings (eight starts) at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Phillies' Mark Appel: Targeting mid-July return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joe Jordan, the Phillies' director of player development, said Appel (shoulder) is looking at a mid-July return, Jay Floyd of the Shore Sports Network reports.

Appel has been playing catch and is not feeling any pain in his shoulder according to Jordan. He was shut down in late May with a shoulder strain.

Phillies' Mark Appel: Plays catch Tuesday, could return in 2-3 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Appel (shoulder) played catch Tuesday for the first time since being shut down in May, but he remains at least two-to-three weeks away from returning from the DL, Meghan Montemurro of The News Journal reports.

The former first round pick has been battling a shoulder strain since late May, but he does appear to be making progress towards a return. He played catch Tuesday, so he'll likely need to log a few more similar sessions before moving to throwing off a mound. The expectation is that he'll be able to return from the 7-day DL in two-to-three weeks, at which point he should return to the rotation at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Phillies' Mark Appel: Placed on minor league DL
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Appel was placed on the minor league DL Friday with a right shoulder strain, the Philadelphia Inquirer's Matt Breen reports.

His fastball velocity had been down in his last start, topping out at 89 mph before being pulled in the first inning Sunday. Appel has been a disappointment ever since getting drafted with the top pick in the 2013 draft, but his previous failings have been performance related. This shoulder injury might be a cue to move on from Appel in dynasty leagues where fewer than 150 prospects are rostered.
