Here is a recent MLB story from The Associated Press:

Mark Appel is proof that even for a first draft pick, the road to the big leagues can be a bumpy one.

Appel was called up by the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday, nine years after being drafted first overall by Houston. In between, he bounced around the minors, was traded as part of the 2015 deal that sent Ken Giles to the Astros — and even quit baseball for a while.

He resurfaced last year and eventually joined the Phillies this weekend, despite not pitching. If Appel, 30, appears in a game for Philadelphia, he will be the fourth No. 1 overall selection to make his major league debut this year, joining Royce Lewis (Twins) in 2017, Adley in 2019. Rutschman ( Orioles) and Spencer Torkelson (Tigers) in 2020.

Only one other time have four first picks debuted in a year. It was 1989, when Andy Benes, Ken Griffey Jr. and Jeff King — the No. 1 pick in each of the previous three years — all started their big league careers. The other first pick to debut in 1989 was Ben McDonald, who was actually drafted that same year by Baltimore.

With the draft coming up next month, here are some more history notes for the No. 1 overall picks, with help from Baseball-Reference.com:

– Although so far, 1989 is the only year four first picks have made their major league debuts, there have been other seasons where three No. 1s have done so. They were 2007 (Luke Hochevar, Justin Upton and Josh Hamilton) and 1987 (BJ Surhoff, Shawn Abner and Tim Belcher).

– Although more common early in the draft, McDonald is the last player to debut the same year he was drafted first overall. The longest wait belongs to Matt Bush, who was taken in 2004 from San Diego and eventually pitched to the majors in 2016 for Texas. He’s still with the Rangers.

– Appel is one of the few No. 1 picks who didn’t play in the majors. Steve Chilcott, selected in 1966 by the New York Mets, and Brien Taylor, selected by the New York Yankees in 1991, had injury problems. Brady Aiken, selected in 2014 by Houston, is a more recent example. Last year’s first choice, Henry Davis, reached Double-A in the Pittsburgh Pirates system.

GAME TIME

Appel was drafted by two other teams (and didn’t sign) before the Astros picked him first overall. Who were these franchisees?

LINE OF THE WEEK

Austin Hays had to beat time to hit for the cycle. On Wednesday night, Hays and the Orioles beat Washington 7-0 in a shortened six-inning game. That was enough time – he hit a single in the first, a home run in the third, a triple in the fourth and a double in the sixth.

RETURN OF THE WEEK

Trailing 2-0 with two outs in ninth-and-no one, the Los Angeles Dodgers had a 1.1% chance of beating Atlanta on Sunday night, according to Baseball Savant. Then ex-Dodger Kenley Jansen allowed a pair of singles, putting the men first and third. After Chris Taylor stole second, Trayce Thompson’s single tagged both runners to force extra innings.

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

RESPONSE TO NEWS

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