Most Popular Article of the Week: Weekly Prospects Check In: Where the Hell is James Kaprielian?


The New York Yankees drafted James Kaprielian with their first pick in the 2015 MLB First Year Players Draft with the hopes of getting him through the Yankees system quickly and into the Bronx. Why wouldn’t he move quickly? He was a college pitcher that was considered to be MLB ready straight out of the draft. The only thing besides an act of God or some higher power that could stop Kaprielian from reaching the Major Leagues this season was going to be an injury. That is exactly what has happened thus far to Mr. Kaprielian.


Kaprielian was placed on the MiLB disabled list on April 25th and was said to be “close to throwing” again on May 20th. Here it is June 21st and the Yankees top draft pick in 2015 is still shut down with elbow inflammation. Where the hell is James Kaprielian and when do we begin to worry about another Ian Clarkin or, gulp, worse situation?
