James Kaprielian’s Info
James Kaprielian’s Scouting Report
Kaprielian was considered a third-round talent out of high school, but was committed to going to UCLA. That was smart decision for the righty. He’s now a first round talent and a better all around pitcher. Kaprielian has a consistent delivery with great command and a solid changeup. He doesn’t throw as hard as most pitchers in the draft, but his command makes him a first round selection. He also has a slider and curveball, but he still needs to work on being consistent with those pitches. Kapreilian looks the most major league ready pitcher in this draft.
Fastball: 89-92 MPH
Curveball: 78-81 MPH
