Yankees get a brief update on James Kaprielian 1


When the Yankees found outĀ James Kaprielian went on the minor league disabled list on Thursday, they were heavily concerned. Especially since the injury had to do with the same elbow that was barking at him all last season.

During the Yankees 6-5 loss against the Orioles, the team found out some news, which wasn’t particularly good or bad.

Kaprielian underwent an MRI and a dye contrast in Tampa by the team’s orthopedist Dr. Daniel Murphy.

The imaging results were then sent to team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad.

Kaprielian is scheduled to have a further evaluation and consultation on Tuesday afternoon in Los Angeles, California. The evaluation will be performed by Dr. Neil ElAttrache.

More updates will be made available after Kaprielian’s appointment next week.

    Like everybody I'm really really hoping that this kid doesn't need TJS. He's got a lot of potential but his luck has been terrible. I find it amazing that he went through spring training and had no issues (as far as we fans knew) and then couple days before minor league season opener BAM!!! Time to see the elbow doctor after a bullpen session. To me it makes no sense, it's like these teams do everything they can and are so careful to keep young pitchers healthy and they're even more cautious if a pitcher has been injured before and, yet it seems like no matter what happens these kids still get hurt. I know no team will ever be able to completely protect these young pitchers whether it's Kaprielian or another pitcher but, I'm pretty tired of reading articles that say "player X scheduled for TJS".
