Kaprielian (3-1) earned the win Saturday against the Royals after tossing six scoreless innings, allowing two hits and four walks while fanning seven. Kaprielian was excellent Saturday and while he allowed six baserunners, only one of those reached third base. The right-hander has given up two or fewer runs in all but one of his outings this season and has looked outstanding thus far. His next start is scheduled for next week on the road against the Yankees.
Kaprielian (2-1) was tagged with the loss Sunday against the Rockies after allowing two runs on five hits and three walks while fanning six across five innings. Kaprielian suffered his first loss of the season but delivered a decent outing considering he had to pitch in the altitude of Coors Field, as he limited the damage to just two runs and ended just three outs away from posting a quality start. The right-hander has allowed two or fewer runs in four of his five outings to date, and he's scheduled to start next week at home against the Royals.
Kaprielian allowed four runs on five hits and three walks with three strikeouts across 3.2 innings in a no-decision versus Seattle on Monday. He also hit a batter. Kaprielian was able to navigate two baserunners in each of the second and third innings without trouble. The right-hander then faltered in the fourth, with a three-run blast by Donovan Walton and an RBI double from Kyle Lewis on his ledger. Kaprielian was bailed out by Oakland's offense, which rallied to tie the game in the eighth. He's posted a 2.95 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 22:9 K:BB across 21.1 innings. Monday was the worst of his four starts so far -- the 27-year-old lines up for a road start in Colorado this weekend, which could be a tricky assignment.
Kaprielian (2-0) earned the win Wednesday against the Mariners after tossing seven scoreless innings, giving up two hits and two walks while fanning four. The rookie right-hander continues to impress and while the sample size is small, he's looked outstanding through his first three appearances. Wednesday's outing might have been his best outing so far, though, as he clinched his first quality start at the MLB level and improved his ERA to 1.53 across 17.2 innings. Kaprielian's next start is scheduled for next week against the Mariners on the road.
Kaprielian allowed two earned runs on four hits and one walk while striking out nine across 5.2 innings in Friday's win over the Angels. He did not factor into the decision. Kaprielian surrendered a home run to Jose Iglesias in the third inning and a long ball to Jared Walsh in the sixth. Despite that, he left the game with the lead. The 27-year-old has a 2.53 ERA and 1.13 WHIP with a 12.66 K/9 through 10.2 innings. He will continue to stay in the rotation as long as Jesus Luzardo (finger) and Mike Fiers (elbow) remain out.
