Phillies' Mark Appel: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Appel (elbow) was added to the Phillies' 40-man roster Friday.

The top pick in the 2013 first-year player draft, he struggled mightily in his first two years with full-season affiliates and was unceremoniously shipped out of Houston last winter in the Ken Giles trade. Things didn't get much better for Appel in 2016, as he posted a 4.46 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in eight starts at Triple-A before ultimately having surgery to remove a bone spur from his elbow. However, he's making steady progress in his recovery and could compete for a rotation spot in spring training.

Phillies' Mark Appel: Making progress in recovery from elbow surgery
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Appel (elbow) will finish his rehab work in the next few weeks and head home for the offseason to prepare for spring training, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Appel is recovering from surgery in June to remove a bone spur in his right elbow. He went 3-3 with a 4.46 ERA and a 34:20 K:BB in 38.1 innings at Triple-A Lehigh Valley before being shut down. The two-time first-round pick will likely get a chance to compete for a rotation spot this spring.

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.

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.
