Weekly Check In: James Kaprielian

I think it is safe to say that Yankees top prospect Luis Severino is going to lose his prospects status this season and will lose his spot in these weekly check in posts. I have never been happier to have to scramble and find a replacement for a player, well until Robert Refsnyder gets called up for good, so it was no big deal for us to start checking in on James Kaprielian every Sunday morning. Kaprielian, who was recently promoted to the short season Staten Island Yankees from the New York-Penn League, was the team's first draft pick in the 2015 MLB First Year Player's Draft.

Kaprielian went down to the wire before signing with the team like most Scott Boras "advised" clients do and was immediately assigned to the Yankees Gulf Coast League rookie team. While Kaprielian was not the dominant force you would have hoped for while there in the GCL, and he wasn't the starter he was in college either, he apparently did enough to warrant the call up. Was it rust? Probably, but the good news is if you're still undecided just check back here next Sunday for another weekly check in.
