    Applebee is the prototypical crafty lefthander, moving his 86 mph fastball around the strike zone and keeping hitters off-balance with an excellent curveball and changeup. He doesn't miss many bats, but Applebee doesn't give up a lot of solid contact either. After a solid summer in the Cape Cod League, Applebee went 10-2, 3.74 this spring. His track record and ability to keep the ball in the ballpark (five homers allowed in 89 innings) could make him the second Highlander drafted, after closer Joe Kelly.
