Blasting Off: The Mark Appel Project

In the sixteenth edition of Blasting Off, Andy Pondillo and Ray Kuhn discuss what Mark Appel can mean for the Astros moving forward.



The Astros selected pitcher Mark Appel first overall out of Stanford. Will he be a fixture for the Astros in the coming years, and when can we expect him up. Andy and Ray discuss what his presence could mean for the team in the very near future.




Some of the other highlights include:

-Astros updates from the past week, why have the bats gone silent?
-Should the Astros consider bringing up George Springer soon?
-Andre Ethier could be dealt soon, could the Astros afford it?

Listen to all of this and more on the player below, fellow Hill Climbers! Stay tuned for our new episode next week, and feel free to tweet us questions or comments at @astrosCTH.
