Mark Appel is proof that even for a No. 1 draft pick, the road to major leagues is sometimes uneven.

Appel was called up by the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday, nine years after he was drafted into Houston’s first overall. In between, he bounced around minors, traded in the 2015 deal that sent Ken Giles to the Astros – and even stopped baseball a bit.

He reappeared last year and finally joined the Phillies this weekend, though he didn’t pitch. If the 30-year-old Appel appears in a game for Philadelphia, he will be the fourth No. 1 in the total selection to make his major league debut this year, including 2017’s Royce Lewis (Twins), 2019’s Adley Rutschman (Orioles) and 2020’s Spencer Torkelson (Tigers).

At just one time there were four top picks who debuted in a year. That was in 1989, when Andy Benes, Ken Griffey Jr. and Jeff King – the No. 1 pick each over the past three years – all have started their major league careers. Another top pick to make his debut in 1989 was Ben McDonald, who was actually drafted the same year in Baltimore.

In the upcoming draft next month, here are a few other notes about the history of No. 1 general selection, with a little help from

– Although so far, 1989 is the only year the four top picks made their major league debuts, there were other seasons when the three No. 1. Those are 2007 (Luke Hochevar, Justin Upton and Josh Hamilton) and 1987 (BJ Surhoff, Shawn Abner and Tim Belcher).

-Although it was more common in the early days of the draft, McDonald was the last player to make his debut in the same year in which he was first drafted overall. The longest wait was for Matt Bush, who took over in 2004 by San Diego and finally pitched to the majors in 2016 for Texas. He’s still with the Rangers.

– Appel is one of several No. 1 pick who has never played in the majors. Steve Chilcott, who was selected in 1966 by the New York Mets, and Brien Taylor, who was picked by the New York Yankees in 1991, had injury problems. Brady Aiken, who was selected in 2014 by Houston, is a more recent example. Last year’s top pick, Henry Davis, reached Double-A in the Pittsburgh Pirates system.


Appel was drafted by two other teams (and did not sign) before he was first selected by the Astros overall. Who are those franchises?


Austin Hays needed to beat the weather to hit for the cycle. On Wednesday night, Hays and the Orioles beat Washington 7-0 in a game that was shortened to six innings. That was enough time – he hit a solo in the first, a homer in the third, a triple in the fourth and a double in the sixth.


Falling to 2-0 with two out of ninth and no one, the Los Angeles Dodgers had a 1.1% chance of beating Atlanta on Sunday night, according to Baseball Savant. Former Dodger Kenley Jansen then allowed a pair of singles, putting the boys first and third. After Chris Taylor stole a second, lone Trayce Thompson scored for both runners to force additional innings.

Each team scored once in the 10th before the Dodgers finally won 5-3 at 11. Los Angeles won two of three on Freddie Freeman’s return to Atlanta.


The Detroit Tigers drafted Appel from high school in 2009 in the 15th round. He was selected to the Pittsburgh Pirates ’eighth overall in 2012 before returning to Stanford for his senior season and climbing to No. 1.
