Report: Astros offered Mark Appel $6m

Inside the Padres' Tom Krasovic has a source who says Mark Appel turned down $6m from the Astros last night, leading to the Correa selection.

If Correa agreed to $6m (or less) it free up at least $1.2m to offer Lance McCullers, with no penalty.

Boras is likely behind the source.

Do we know what the slot is for the 8th pick where Appel fell to? Wondering if $6M is better than that.
