Weekly Check In: James Kaprielian

James Kaprielian’s professional career did not start out the way anyone had planned as he struggled in his first few appearances of the season. Kaprielian, like most Scott Boras “advised” clients do, went down to the absolute wire before signing his deal with the Yankees and may have been battling a bit of rust to begin his Yankees tenure while he also had to adjust to coming out of the bullpen at first. Kaprielian has since been bumped up to the New York-Penn League’s Staten Island Yankees as a starter and has made the most of his time there thus far.

Kaprielian has shown the fans and the doubters a shimmer of hope and a glimpse into the future as a starter with the Staten Island Yankees and now looks to finish the season strong. Kaprielian is now debuting for the 2016 season where he may is unlikely to repeat short season ball and will likely head to either Charleston with the Riverdogs or Tampa with the High-A Tampa Yankees.
