Athletics' James Kaprielian: Nearing 2019 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (shoulder) threw three innings in an appearance at extended spring training Monday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Kaprielian missed the entire 2016 season with an elbow injury that ultimately required Tommy John surgery, which sidelined him for all of 2017. He was expected to resume pitching at some point in 2018, but that never materialized after he developed a shoulder injury last May. The shoulder issue reared its head again this spring and continues to delay Kaprielian's return to competitive action, but he finally looks to have nearly reached the finish line in his lengthy rehab program. He's expected to compete one more outing at the Athletics' spring training facility in Arizona before heading to a minor-league affiliate.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (shoulder) was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Kaprielian won't open the season on the big-league roster, though that was true before this transaction. He's unlikely to open the year anywhere but the injured list, as he's yet to resume throwing after being shut down with a lat strain in mid-February. The Athletics' will probably be happy for him to throw any innings at any level this season, something he hasn't done since 2016.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Could be cleared soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (shoulder) hopes to be cleared to start throwing next week, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The injury bug returned for one of its favorite targets early this spring, as Kaprielian was shut down with a lat strain in mid-February. Though the pitcher framed recent developments as positive, he's already behind schedule, as more than two weeks have passed since he was originally shut down for what was supposed to be a two-week period. Kaprielian hasn't pitched in a game since 2016, so anything other than the worst-case scenario is indeed comparatively good news.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Feels improvement in lat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (shoulder) said that he isn't having any issues with his injured lat as of Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

This is certainly encouraging news, though it should still be taken with caution given the prospect's injury history. Keprielian will be re-evaluated over the weekend with the hope of returning to throwing soon, which is roughly on track with the original two-week shutdown timetable issued last week.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Shut down for two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian was diagnosed with a lat strain Wednesday and shut down for two weeks, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Injuries are nothing new for Kaprielian, who hasn't thrown a pitch in a game since 2016. Compared to his previous issues, this one appears relatively minor, but it's still hard to be optimistic, given his history.
