We are one week into the Minor-League season and we’ve got some injury news to report. Sherten Apostel and Owen White are both listed on the IL.
Sherten Apostel to the IL retroactive to May 10.
Sherten Apostel, 22, has been playing 1st base for the Double-A Frisco RoughRiders before he was injured (groin). So far he is slashing a line of .273/.304/.409/.713 at the plate with 6 RBI. He’s made some nice defensive scoops as well.
He’s expected to miss minimal time.
White, 21, can’t seem to catch a break, no pun intended. He pitched professionally for the first time on Thursday and has a broken bone in his hand.
White pitched 2.2 innings, allowed 2 runs on 4 hits, 2 walks and 4 strikeouts. He had a couple of wild pitches as well.
We are looking at a Mid-to-late June return if all goes according to plan.
Here’s to a speedy recovery to both.
