2017

2016

Chosen as the Yankees' first-round pick in 2015, Kaprielian made three starts at the short-season level, working to a 2.00 ERA with 12 strikeouts in nine innings and a .229 batting average against. The righty has a four-pitch arsenal, leading with a fastball (sitting in the 89-92 mph range) and mixing in a slider, changeup, and curveball -- the latter two being his best pitches. He pitched to a career 2.04 ERA as the staff ace at UCLA, and at 22 years old entering the 2016 season, he has the potential to move up the organizational ranks relatively quickly. The majors will likely have to wait until 2017 at the very earliest, but he could progress to some of the higher levels of the minors this season.
