Astros Release Max Sapp

The Astros have released minor league catcher Max Sapp according to Baseball America's Matt Eddy (via Twitter). He was Houston's first round pick back in 2006, the 23rd overall selection.

Sapp, 22, hit just .224/.310/.313 in 839 plate appearances, none above A-Ball. He survived a life-threatening case of viral meningitis that wiped out his entire 2009 season. Sapp received a $1.4MM signing bonus when he turned pro, and was rated as the team's 17th best prospect by Baseball America as recently as two years ago.
