2017-03-30 20:00:00 (link to chat)How good can James Kaprielian be... Are we looking at Ace upside? Please rank these pitchers 5 years from now: Kapielian, A. Espinoza, Glasnow. Thank you.
(Patrick from Tennessee )
Kaprielian could be an ace, along the same lines as maybe 50 other guys in the minors with similar stuff, similar injury concerns and similar being-a-pitcher-ness.

1. Espinoza, 2. Glasnow, 3. Kaprielian (Scooter Hotz)
2016-12-01 19:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on James Kaprielian?
(David from NY)
Big dude, lots of polish, could be a solid #3 for years if he stays healthy. Could wind up as a decent eighth inning guy if the durability is a long term concern. (Mike Gianella)
2016-04-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your impression of, forecast for the Yank's James Kaprielian?
(JM from CT)
Immense talent - his fastball recently hit 97 and his curve is really effective. Sure looks like a top pick. He just turned 22, and the Yankees drafted him as a kind of Mike Leake-type "help now" first-rounder, so I'd expect him maybe next year. He's killing it in the minors right now. (Kenny Ducey)
2016-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think drafting the Yanks James Kaprielian in a Dynasty league is a good idea?
(JM from CT)
Yes. (Harry Pavlidis)
