Sherten Apostel to start at AA

After making his MLB debut in 2020 with the Texas Rangers, Sherten Apostel has to get used to being sent down to the minors again.

After spending the first two years of his professional career in the Dominican Summer League in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, Sherten moved up to the Appalachian League, where he played for the Bristol Pirates. Halfway 2018, the Pirates traded him to the Texas Rangers, who sent him to the Spokane Indians (back then A-Short Season).
In 2019, Sherten split the season between Full A Hickory and A-Advanced Down East Wood Ducks.

With the 2020 corona shortened season, Sherten was added to the Rangers 40-man roster and even called up the the Bigs, where he played seven games and batted a modest .100. Five of those seven games, Sherten played at first base, where he posted a fielding percentage of .973. Sherten played the other two games at third base, where his fielding percentage was an abysmal .500.

Despite being sent down to AA for the start of the 2021 season, the Curaçao native remains the no. nine prospect of the Texas Rangers.
