Athletics' James Kaprielian: Starting Saturday after all
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian will start Saturday's game against the Angels, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Manager Bob Melvin announced earlier in the week that Kaprielian was shifting to a bullpen role, but his replacement in the rotation, Daulton Jeffries, landed on the injured list Saturday with an elbow injury. Kaprielian will end up making his previously scheduled turn through the rotation, though he may need a strong performance to receive additional starts given he has an 8.10 ERA across his past four outings.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Moving to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bob Melvin said Thursday that Kaprielian will transition to a bullpen role, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Kaprielian was initially slated to start Saturday's game against the Angels, but Daulton Jefferies will take his place as the starter. The 27-year-old will attempt to right the ship in a relief role after he recorded an 8.10 ERA and 1.80 WHIP in 16.2 innings across his last four starts.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Struggles in loss to Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (7-5) allowed four earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out five across 3.2 innings, taking the loss to the Rangers on Sunday.

Kaprielian started off strong but surrendered three runs on four hits and a walk in the third inning. He allowed a fourth run in the fourth inning and failed to finish the frame. It was his shortest start since May 31. The 27-year-old has a 4.02 ERA and 1.27 WHIP with 108 punchouts in 105.1 innings this season.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Four innings in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian didn't factor into the decision Tuesday against the White Sox after allowing one run on five hits and two walks while fanning four across four innings.

Kaprielian struggled a bit with his control and hit two batters, but this can still be considered as a positive outing for him after he had given up a combined 10 earned runs across nine frames over his previous two trips to the mound. He's made 19 starts on the season, and while he's been inconsistent at times, he still owns a decent 3.81 ERA across 101.2 innings.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Knocked around again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian allowed four runs on four hits and three walks over four innings Wednesday against Detroit. He struck out four and did not factor into the decision.

The Tigers did the majority of their damage with the long ball, including a Miguel Cabrera two-run shot in the fourth inning and an Akil Baddoo solo blast in the fifth. Kaprielian has struggled in his last two outings, giving up 10 runs across nine innings in a pair of no-decisions. He's also notably yielded five home runs in that stretch. Kaprielian, whose next start is scheduled to come at home against the White Sox, is 7-4 on the year with a 3.87 ERA and 99:37 K:BB over 97.2 innings.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Hit hard by Yanks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian pitched five innings in Thursday's 7-6 loss to the Yankees, allowing six runs on six hits and a walk with eight strikeouts. He didn't factor into the decision.

Making the start against the team that drafted him, Kaprielian was done in by the long ball as three New York home runs accounted for all but one of the runs charged to the righty. While the six earned runs are Kaprielien's most surrendered in four starts, his eight strikeouts Thursday match his total from his last three turns combined. He'll take a 3.65 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 95:34 K:BB into Wednesday's scheduled start against Detroit.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Earns seventh win Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (7-4) earned the win Friday against the Giants after tossing five innings of one-run ball, allowing three hits and four walks while fanning four.

The right-hander tossed 54 of his 92 pitches for strikes and tied his season-high mark for walks in this outing, but he still did enough to outduel Alex Wood en route to his seventh win of the campaign. The rookie has now allowed three or fewer earned runs in each of his last three appearances, going 2-0 with a 3.31 ERA in that span, and his season-long ERA stands at 3.25 through 88.2 innings.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Logs no-decision Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian yielded three runs on eight hits over 5.1 innings in a no-decision Saturday against Texas. He did not record a strikeout or a walk.

Kaprielian failed to notch a strikeout for the first time in 15 starts this season, but he did enough to leave with a 3-2 lead with one out in the sixth inning. Kaprielian lost a chance at the win when Jonah Heim immediately greeted Oakland reliever Andrew Chafin with a sacrifice fly. Kaprielian has been a model of consistency this season, holding his opponents to three runs or fewer in all but two of his starts. He's 6-4 with a 3.33 ERA and an 83:29 K:BB in 83.2 innings on the year.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Shoulder feeling good
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian reported no setbacks with his previously ailing shoulder following his six-inning start against the Rangers on Sunday, the Associated Press reports.

The young right-hander returned from the injured list after spending the minimum 10 days sidelined. Kaprielian encouragingly shouldered a normal workload during the outing, and he should therefore be prepared for the same moving forward.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Fires quality start in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (6-4) allowed two earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out four across six innings, earning the win over the Rangers on Sunday.

Kaprielian allowed Adolis Garcia to score in the first inning after back-to-back doubles. The only other run scored against him was in the sixth inning when Isiah Kiner-Falefa tripled and scored. Kaprielian has been strong of late with the exception of his previous outing against the Padres where he surrendered six runs. The 27-year-old carries a 3.22 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP with 83 strikeouts in 78.1 innings this season.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Activated, starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list and is starting Sunday against the Rangers.

Kaprielian was placed on the shelf in late July with right shoulder inflammation, but he'll rejoin the rotation after missing little more than the 10-day minimum. The 27-year-old had a 2.65 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 73:26 K:BB over 68 innings this season prior to surrendering six runs in his last start before landing on the injured list July 27.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Expected to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bob Melvin said Kaprielian (shoulder) is expected to return from the 10-day injured list to start Sunday against the Rangers, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

Kaprielian hit the IL with right shoulder inflammation in late July, but the issue looks like it won't cost him more than one turn in the rotation. That's good news for the Athletics, as righty allowed six runs in his most recent start but had allowed no more than three runs in any of his previous eight outings and owns a 3.24 ERA on the year.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Could return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (shoulder) played catch before Wednesday's game and could make a start against the Rangers on Sunday, the Athletics' official site reports.

The right-hander has been in the process of overcoming an impingement in his throwing shoulder, and the fact he was able to engage in a throwing session Wednesday is certainly encouraging. If Kaprielian isn't able to take the hill Sunday, however, Daulton Jeffries is slated to slot in for his second major-league start of 2021.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Shoulder issue not considered major
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian's shoulder inflammation is not considered serious, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Kaprelian hit the injured list Saturday and will miss at least one start, but it sounds as though he may not miss much more than that. Daulton Jefferies will take his place in the rotation to start Sunday against the Angels.

July 31, 2021 03:00 PM
Athletics' James Kaprielian: Placed on 10-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian was placed on the 10-day injured list with a shoulder impingement Saturday.

Kaprielian was charged with the loss in his last outing when he gave up six runs in 4.1 innings against the Padres, and his shoulder issue could have contributed to his struggles. The right-hander had been scheduled to start Sunday's series finale against the Angels, but Daulton Jefferies will be recalled Sunday to take his place, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Kaprielian's move to the injured list will clear room on the active roster for Yan Gomes and Josh Harrison.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Hit hard by San Diego
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (5-4) lost Tuesday's 7-4 defeat at the hands of the Padres, allowing six runs on seven hits and a walk with six strikeouts in 4.1 innings.

Kaprielian was staked to a 3-0 lead after the top of the third but surrendered a two-run Fernando Tatis home run in the bottom of the inning, then allowed four of the first five Padres to reach base in the fifth and was removed. Yusmeiro Petit entered and immediately served up a three-run home run to Manny Machado with two of the runs charged to Kaprielian. This was the 27-year-old's worst start by far as his ERA jumped from 2.65 all the way to 3.24.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Blanks Angels through six
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (5-3) earned the win Tuesday after holding the Angels scoreless across six frames. He allowed five hits and a pair of walks while striking out seven.

The 27-year-old has now tossed at least five innings in eight straight starts, and he's given up three or fewer runs in each of those outings. Thanks to his recent success, the right-hander has compiled a 2.65 ERA and 1.12 WHIP across 68 innings this season. It's unclear how the A's intend to handle his workload, as Kaprielian has now matched his highest innings total in pro ball, which came in 2019 following Tommy John surgery.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Tosses five innings in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian allowed two runs on four hits and four walks in five innings of a no-decision Saturday against Texas. He struck out four.

Kaprielian wasn't particularly efficient, allowing eight baserunners and throwing just 48 of his 87 pitches for strikes, but he did settle in after allowing back-to-back homers in the first inning and got through five complete innings for his seventh consecutive start. He hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in a start during that stretch, lowering his ERA to 2.90 in 62 innings for the season. Kaprielian is scheduled to make his first start of the second half at home against the Angels.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Fans 10 despite loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (4-3) allowed one earned run on five hits and one walk while striking out 10 across seven innings, taking the loss to the Red Sox on Sunday.

Kaprielian was stellar Sunday, striking out a season-high 10 batters and tying his high-innings mark in 2021. However, he was stuck with the loss after allowing a single run to cross and receiving no run support. The 27-year-old has a 2.84 ERA and 1.07 WHIP with 62 strikeouts in 57 innings. He has four quality starts in his last five outings.

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Tosses quality start despite loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaprielian (4-2) was tagged with the loss Tuesday against the Rangers after allowing three runs on six hits across six innings while striking out six.

The right-hander was tagged with his second loss of the season, but he delivered another strong performance on the mound. He allowed homers to Joey Gallo in the fourth and sixth innings, but he was quite composed otherwise and finished with his third quality start of the month. He owns a 3.14 ERA across five June starts and is slated to pitch again during the weekend series against the Red Sox at home.
