Ex-No. 1 pick Appel gets big league call-up at 30



Ex-No. 1 pick Appel gets big league call-up at 30

Mark Appel, the 2013 No. 1 overall pick whose baseball career included a three-season absence from the sport, is getting his first major league call-up Saturday at the age of 30.

The Philadelphia Phillies are bringing in the right-handed Appel from Triple-A Lehigh Valley because reliever Connor Brogdon is on the COVID-19 injured list, interim manager Rob Thomson told reporters Friday night.

“Completely overwhelmed. I have so many thoughts I want to share but can’t find the words, so I’ll just say this: I’m thankful,” Appel tweeted Saturday morning. “Today, I get to play a game I love as a Major League Baseball player.”

Appel has spent the past two seasons pitching in Double- and Triple-A for the Phillies. He has a 5-0 record and 1.61 ERA in 19 appearances for Lehigh Valley this season.


He rejoined the Phillies’ organization in 2021 after announcing in February 2018 that he was stepping away from baseball following injuries to his labrum and rotator cuff that ultimately required surgery.

One of the most decorated pitchers in NCAA history, the Pittsburgh Pirates drafted Appel eighth overall in 2012, but he returned to Stanford for his senior season and the Houston Astros selected him first in 2013, one spot ahead of Kris Bryant. Appel joined the Phillies when he was included in the December 2015 trade that sent closer Ken Giles to Houston.

The Phillies on Saturday are playing the third game of a four-game series against the San Diego Padres after splitting the first two.

Information from ESPN’s David Schoenfield was used in this report.

Judge happy to settle for $19M, avoid hearing



Judge happy to settle for $19M, avoid hearing

Jun 24, 2022

  • ESPN News Services

NEW YORK — Aaron Judge arrived at the players’ association office in Manhattan for his salary arbitration hearing, set for noon Friday.

“I don’t know who picked that, but kind of bad timing,” he said. “We were logged in, ready to go. All dressed up.”

His hearing never started.


By 12:45 p.m., the star outfielder and the New York Yankees agreed to a $19 million, one-year contract, according to multiple reports confirmed by ESPN, a deal that leaves the slugger on track to become a free agent after the World Series.

Judge’s deal was struck exactly between the $21 million he asked for and the $17 million the Yankees offered when figures were exchanged on March 22. Judge can make an additional $500,000 in award bonuses: $250,000 for MVP and $250,000 for World Series MVP.

“I was happy we were able to agree on a number and settle this thing and not have to go into court there,” Judge said after Friday night’s 3-1 loss to Houston. “If I would have went in that room, I probably would have missed the game tonight, and that didn’t really sit too well with me. I valued playing this game tonight with my teammates, trying to battle it out.”

Talks on a long-term deal broke off on Opening Day. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said the team offered an eight-year contract worth $230.5 million to $234.5 million, the difference the gap in this year’s proposed salary.

Judge’s representatives wanted a nine-year deal in excess of the average annual value of Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout’s contract, which reportedly came out to $319.6 million.


A long-term deal wasn’t discussed this week.

“That’s for when the season’s done,” Judge said.

Teammates were happy Judge avoided a hearing.

“It’s not good to go in that room,” pitcher Luis Severino said, explaining the session would have forced Judge to hear the Yankees say “why you’re not worth it, why you’re not worth $20-something million.”

Judge is in the midst of perhaps his best season, batting .299 with a major-league-leading 27 homers and 53 RBIs in 68 games. On track for his fourth All-Star selection in seven big league seasons, he hit a winning single during Thursday night’s 7-6 come-from-behind victory over defending American League champion Houston.


Judge has helped power the Yankees to a major-league-best 52-19 record. He also has shifted from right field to become the Yankees’ primary center fielder.

No statistics or evidence from after March 1 were admissible other than contract and salary comparisons, timing set when Major League Baseball and the players’ association agreed to the deal that ended the lockout.

Judge batted .287 with 39 homers and 98 RBIs last season.

“Excited that that’s behind us and we can leave that portion of the show alone,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said.

Now teammates are looking forward to his next deal.


“At least we have him for this year,” Severino said, “and hopefully next year we can sign him back.”

The terms of Judge’s settlement with the Yankees were first reported by the New York Post.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
