Player Profile: Andrew Aplin

I have one card of Andrew Aplin, from 2013 Topps Pro Debut.

Playing career: Outfielder Andrew Aplin was drafted by the Astros in 2012. He had a very good, if somewhat unusual, batting line in 2013 at Class-A Lancaster, hitting .278 with 9 HR and 107 RBI. Very unusual to see a 100-RBI season anywhere in the minor leagues, especially with fewer than ten home runs. He has split each of the past two seasons between AA and AAA.

Where he is now: In 2015 he split the season between Corpus Christi and Fresno, hitting .296 with 2 HR and 40 RBI.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fourth when you type Andrew Ap, between Andrew Applepie, a musician, and Andrew Aprile, a music teacher in Queens. Another prominent Andrew Aplin is a doctor in Pennsylvania.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Yeison Asencio.
