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
Changeup: N/A

The best fit for Kaprielian is San Francisco or Oakland, as he would be able to stay on the West Coast and be able to come up through a solid farm system. He would probably be up in the big leagues by 2017 in either organization.
