Great piece in Newsday about James Kaprielian.

Erik Boland never disappoints. Kaprielian describes himself as a “caged bull” in the piece. Basically because he’s so psyched about being a New York Yankee and he just wants to get out there and make things happen.  But he has to learn patience… and he gets that. 

Boland writes:

“‘We’re obviously taking it slow and there’s a purpose behind it,’ Kaprielian said Tuesday morning. ‘I’m getting anxious and obviously want to be out there. But we’ll stick to the plan and trust the process.’

Kaprielian, who turns 23 on Thursday, isn’t that far behind his fellow pitchers in camp and said he ‘absolutely’ will be on some team’s roster, ready to pitch, come April, likely High-A Tampa. He looked crisp throwing live batting practice Tuesday morning and likely will make his spring debut within the next week.”

Gotta love the grind, but gotta love the energy too. I can’t wait to see this kid throw.  I have a hunch we may see him some time this season too if he doesn’t make the Big roster when Spring is complete.

Very exciting.
