  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Allows three runs in win

    Kaprielian did not factor into the decision against the Royals on Sunday, allowing three runs on two hits while striking out two and walking four in 5.1 innings.

    Kaprielian threw 48 of 84 pitches for strikes across 5.1 frames Sunday. Despite allowing two hits, he allowed three runners to cross the plate thanks to four free passes given to Royals batters. The righty has yet to make it through six innings in any of his 11 games this season. Kaprielian has also been unable to keep opponents from scoring, allowing at least one run in every game, including six games with three or more earned runs. He will take a 5.88 ERA into his next appearance.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Takes another loss

    Kaprielian (0-5) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in 5.1 innings, taking the loss Tuesday versus the Mariners.

    Kaprielian was responsible for a Taylor Trammell solo home run in the third inning and Jesse Winker's RBI double in the sixth. Despite the hard contact, this was up there with the more efficient of Kaprielian's 10 starts this season, and the seven strikeouts matched a season high. He's still struggling a bit with a 5.98 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 34:21 K:BB through 46.2 innings overall. He's expected to draw a favorable road start versus the Royals this weekend.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Inefficient in loss

    Kaprielian (0-4) allowed six runs (five earned) on seven hits and six walks with two strikeouts in 3.2 innings, taking the loss Wednesday versus the Red Sox.

    Kaprielian was inefficient, throwing 48 of 94 pitches for strikes. This was a season-worst performance in terms of runs, hits and walks allowed, though he wasn't hurt too much by the long ball since he only surrendered one homer. The right-hander hasn't shown much quality in 41.1 innings across nine starts, logging a 6.31 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 27:19 K:BB while not pitching deeper than the sixth inning. Kaprielian lines up for a home start versus the Mariners next week.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Five innings in Athletics' loss

    Kaprielian did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing two runs on five hits and zero walks over five innings against Cleveland. He struck out three.

    Kaprielian gave up back-to-back solo home runs to Jose Ramirez and Josh Naylor to lead off the fourth inning, but those were the right-hander's only blemishes on the night. Thursday's performance marked the fourth time this season he's allowed two or fewer runs. Across eight starts and 37.2 innings, the third-year pitcher sports a 5.73 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with a 25:13 K:BB. His next start is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday's contest in Boston.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Takes third loss

    Kaprielian (0-3) took the loss during Friday's 7-2 defeat at the hands of the Red Sox, allowing four runs on five hits and two walks with one strikeout in 5.1 innings.

    Kaprielian surrendered two runs on three baserunners in the fourth inning and the bullpen let in two runs in the sixth after he put two runners on with one out. The 28-year-old has now lost three of eight starts and will take a 6.06 ERA and 1.35 WHIP into a start against Atlanta next week.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Takes another no-decision

    Kaprielian allowed four runs on six hits and struck out two over 4.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Rangers on Sunday.

    On the bright side, Kaprielian didn't walk a batter for the first time in six appearances this season. This was the third time he's allowed four or more runs, and it's his second start of less than five innings on the campaign. He's struggled to a 5.93 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 21:11 K:BB across 27.1 innings overall. The right-hander projects to start next week at home versus the Red Sox.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Surrenders five runs in no-decision

    Kaprielian registered a no-decision during Tuesday's 7-5 victory over Seattle, allowing five runs on seven hits and one walk with three strikeouts in five innings.

    After looking good early, Kaprielian struggled the second and third times through the order, allowing two runs in the third and three in the fifth on six baserunners between the two innings. The 28-year-old tossed 50 of 74 pitches for strikes and has now recorded three strikeouts or fewer in three of his five starts. Kaprielien will carry a 5.48 ERA and 1.35 WHIP into his next start, which is projected to come this weekend against Texas.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Six strikeouts in no-decision

    Kaprielian allowed two runs on four hits and a walk, striking out six in 5.1 innings of a 5-2 win Tuesday over Minnesota. He did not factor into the decision.

    Kaprielian retired the side in order in the first two innings and pitched around hits in the third and fourth innings. He gave up solo home runs to Royce Lewis and Gary Sanchez in the next two frames, however, ending Kaprielian's evening. While the 28-year-old has not yet recorded a win, he has pitched well in three straight outings, allowing two runs or fewer and pitching at least five innings each time. With a 16:10 K:BB, the righty has shown less than stellar command on the season, but Tuesday's start was a step in the right direction.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Limits damage

    Kaprielian allowed two earned runs on three hits and three walks while striking out one across five innings Thursday against Detroit. He did not factor into the decision.

    Kaprielian held the Tigers scoreless through four innings but faltered in the fifth frame by allowing a single, walk and double to consecutive batters. He otherwise effectively limited damage by inducing eight groundball outs, though he had only seven swinging strikes on 75 pitches. After being hit hard in his first outing, Kaprielian has allowed only four earned runs across his last 10.2 innings. However, to maintain that success, he'll need to improve upon his current 10:9 K:BB.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Takes loss despite strong start

    Kaprielian (0-2) took the loss despite a strong start Saturday against the Twins. He allowed just one run on three hits and two walks across 5.2 innings while striking out seven.

    Kaprielian got through five innings without much trouble and nearly got through the sixth as well before Jorge Polanco took him deep to center field with two outs. The Athletics would fail to score, saddling Kaprielian with the loss, but it was nonetheless an encouraging performance after he stumbled in his first start back from a shoulder injury. Kaprielian will look to keep the momentum going next week, when he lines up to face the Tigers in Detroit on Thursday.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Struggles in first start

    Kaprielian (0-1) took the loss during Sunday's 7-3 defeat at the hands of the Guardians, allowing four runs on three hits and four walks with two strikeouts in two innings.

    Kaprielian started okay by getting through the first inning unscathed but permitted one run on three hits in the second and walked the bases loaded in third before being removed. Reliever Jacob Lemoine let all three inherited runners score, and Oakland was never able to recover from the early 4-0 deficit. Kaprielian was solid with a 4.07 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 119.1 innings last season and will look to turn things around against Detroit next week.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Activated ahead of season debut

    The Athletics activated Kaprielian (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Guardians, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    To make room for Kaprielian on the active roster and in the rotation in advance of his season debut, the Athletics optioned No. 5 starter Adam Oller to Triple-A Las Vegas. Kaprielian topped out at four innings and 84 pitches in his third and final rehab start for Las Vegas on Sunday, so he should be capable of giving the Athletics a decent amount of length in his 2022 debut. The right-hander looked rusty during his rehab assignment, however, as he allowed 11 runs and posted a 13:5 K:BB across 13.2 innings over his three starts. As a result, fantasy managers may want to delay activating him for Sunday's start.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Starting Sunday vs. Cleveland

    Kaprielian (shoulder) will come off the 10-day injured list to start Sunday against the Guardians, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    He hasn't covered himself in glory through three rehab starts, giving up 11 runs on 15 hits and five walks while striking out 13 in 13.2 innings, but he must be feeling good physically. It's unclear if the A's will move to a six-man rotation or if Adam Oller will get bumped from the rotation.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Hit hard in third rehab start

    Kaprielian (shoulder) allowed five earned runs on three hits and four walks over four innings to take the loss in Triple-A Las Vegas' defeat at the hands of Tacoma on Tuesday. He also hit a batter and struck out two.

    It was about as rough an outing for Kaprielian as the numbers imply, with the right-hander only getting 46 of his 84 pitches into the strike zone during his labor-intensive outing. Kaprielian's previously ailing shoulder is at least being put to stringent tests in his last two outings, but his results in his two starts with the Aviators have left plenty to be desired. Given the uneven performances, the Athletics may determine Kaprielian needs at least one more turn in the minors before being activated.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Scheduled for another rehab start

    Kaprielian (shoulder) will make another rehab start before returning from the injured list, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Kaprielian has been dealing with a shoulder issue since mid-March. He's made a pair of rehab starts already, but his last one didn't go particularly well, as he allowed four runs on nine hits in 4.2 innings. The A's presumably want to see him have a stronger performance before activating him from the injured list.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Rough outing in second rehab start

    Kaprielian (shoulder) allowed four earned runs on nine hits and a walk over 4.2 innings in Triple-A Las Vegas' win over El Paso on Wednesday. He struck out five.

    Kaprielian's final line underscores the fact he pitched to some contact, but considering the move up to Triple-A and the hitter-friendly environment of the Pacific Coast League, the so-so outing for the recovering right-hander wasn't completely surprising. Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports Kaprielian worked up to 78 pitches during the outing and still has a chance to rejoin the Athletics next week, although the next step in his rehab process is still to be determined.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Next rehab outing set

    Kaprielian (shoulder) will make a rehab start with Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Kaprielian made his first rehab start with Low-A Stockton last week and allowed two runs over five innings, and he'll now move his rehab up to Triple-A. The 28-year-old threw 52 pitches in that outing and should continue ramping up his workload Wednesday, which could end up being his final rehab appearances before returning from the injured list.
