This costs him (I think) major league pay during the All-Star break. He'll be back soon after.

Optioned to Triple-A
July 16, 2022
Appel was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Appel joined the Phillies' bullpen in late June and posted a 1.29 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in seven innings over four appearances with the major-league club. However, the right-hander will head back to the minors after Ranger Suarez (back) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list.

Was he recovering from an injury during the layoff? Or just bored?

Mark Appel (P) PHI - Jun. 24

Appel is expected to be called up by the Phillies ahead of Saturday's game against the Padres, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Connor Brogdon is headed to the COVID-19 injured list, and Appel, who was originally the No. 1 overall pick by the Astros in 2013, is poised to receive his first promotion to the big leagues as a result. The 30-year-old ended a three-year retirement in 2021, and he's pitched well at Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season with a 1.61 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 24:8 K:BB across 28 innings.
