2018-07-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's going on with Grant Holmes and James Kaprielian? I get they're both hurt, but there aren't even like updates lately. Is this going to be a lost season for both of them?
(John from Harrisonburg)
There are reports here and there. Kaprielian has recently begun throwing again after having had some shoulder discomfort while rehabbing his TJ injury. Holmes is less clear. There was a vague shoulder injury that was deemed likely severe and not much since then. With either one, shoulders are more scary for me than elbows. With Kaprielian back to at least some activity there is some hope there, but the timetable for either one is up in the air right now. Lost season would be the best guess. (Scott Delp)
2018-02-28 20:00:00 (link to chat)James Kaprielian o/u 50 MLB ip this year? #2 ceiling post tj?
(Jojo from Sd )
Way under. Dude doesn't even have 30 professional innings to his name. #2 ceiling sure, wouldn't gamble on him reaching it. (Eddy Almaguer)
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)
