Athletics' James Kaprielian: Protected from Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian joined the Athletics' 40-man roster Tuesday.

Kaprielian missed the entire 2018 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in April 2017, but his return to instructional league action in October and addition to the 40-man roster are good indications of his current health. The 24-year-old last pitched in the minors at High-A Tampa in 2016 -- before being traded from the Yankees to the Athletics -- and officially has only eight minor-league games under his belt.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: In action with instructional league team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (elbow) will pitch in an Instructional League game Friday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Kaprielian didn't take the mound during the 2018 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery last April, but he appears to have gradually progressed since starting to play catch back in June. Though Oakland will continue to take it easy with the 24-year-old, he should be fully ready to go by the time spring training rolls around.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Starts playing catch again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (elbow, shoulder) began playing catch again earlier this week, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Kaprielian will be handled with care by the organization, considering he had Tommy John surgery in 2017. The 24-year-old right-hander had been throwing bullpen sessions as part of his rehab when he began feeling the shoulder discomfort that caused him to take time off from throwing. Kaprielian will presumably begin ramping his recovery process back up slowly over the coming days.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Dealing with shoulder soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (elbow) is dealing with shoulder soreness, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Kaprielian's recovery from 2017 Tommy John surgery has been slowed after his shoulder started barking at him. He'll take some time off to let the soreness subside before resuming his rehab program. The 24-year-old prospect was originally hoping to join High-A Stockton by midseason, but it's unclear how long this will set him back.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: On pace for midseason return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (elbow) could join the rotation at High-A Stockton by midseason, MLB.com's Mike Rosenbaum reports.

This is excellent news for the promising right-hander, as it sounds like his rehab from April 2017 Tommy John surgery is going as planned. While he will head to High-A when healthy, Kaprielian is already 24 years old and is an advanced pitching prospect, so he could quickly move to Double-A. If everything goes smoothly, he could make his big-league debut in 2019.
