Arizona Fall League Weekly Check In: James Kaprielian


Ladies and gentleman we’re back and this time it is the pitching that will take the limelight. With our first two weekly check in posts from the Arizona Fall League we checked in with the Yankees probable first baseman for the 2016 season and their possible shortstop or second baseman of the future, what about their future potential ace though?

As we all know by now Kaprielian’s regular season was cut short due to an elbow injury and the righty has worked his way all the way back for New York finally down in Arizona. Kaprielian’s first start didn’t show many signs of conditioning, fatigue or rust as he was as dominant as he was when he went on the disabled list which is a great sign for New York.

With a couple appearances under his belt for the Scottsdale Scorpions this is what his Arizona Fall League stat line looks like right now. This is one we will be keeping an eye on closely as Kaprielian seems to fit into the Yankees 2017 big league plans and beyond.


Stay tuned. 

Kaprielian has thrown three innings in his sole start of the AFL season and he allowed just one hit with six strikeouts in the contest. Very good progress for someone who has basically missed the entire 2016 regular season.
