Weekly Prospects Check In: Ian Clarkin

The New York Yankees received terrible news this week and I think I have to take partial blame for it. A couple weeks back now I asked the question “where the hell is James Kaprielian?” and this week I received my answer. He was flown to New York to visit the team doctor after presumably suffering a setback with his elbow while ramping up his rehab down in Tampa. That is never a good sign and one guy that can tell you that from personal experience is today’s prospect check in Ian Clarkin.

As you all know by now Clarkin missed the entire 2015 regular season with a mystery elbow injury and the fear now is that Kaprielian may follow in Clarkin’s footsteps. I know this is all premature at this point and pure speculation but if Kaprielian was to take anything from Clarkin’s experience it would be this. The Yankees left-hander was able to make it back for the Arizona Fall League last season and thus far he’s been throwing well this season.

Get well soon Kaprielian and keep on keeping on Clarkin. You never know who is watching.
