The Corpus Christi Hooks were no hit on Wednesday by the San Antonio Missions, but the bigger story from an Astros' perspective was the success of Mark Appel.
After his stellar start this past Thursday, 2013 top overall pick Mark Appel has been promoted from Lancaster to the Astros' Double-A affiliate in Corpus Christi.
By acclimation the Astros' minor league talent is among the best, if not the best outright, among Major League teams.
