It's unfortunate that it happened, but it looks like James Kaprielian is going under the knife.  We just wrote about Kap the other day in our BYB piece BAD LUCK BASEBALL: KAPRIELIAN HAS A SETBACK. Now we have the official word. God Dammit, man!

MLB Daily Dish has this nugget:

"Yankees’ pitching prospect James Kaprielian will be having Tommy John surgery on Tuesday...

The Yankees said Dr. Neal ElAttrache will perform the surgery on the right-hander, who is ranked as the team’s No. 6 overall prospect and No. 1 pitching prospect, according to "

Now we obviously hope Kap will come out of this fine, but remember Jacob Lindgren? That's all I thought about when news broke about Kaprielian. Highly touted prospect who ends up souring in the Yankee brass minds. I hate that! But the bottom line is you gotta worry about Tommy John, even though the surgery happens more and more each season. Bottom line, it's still major surgery.

I hope the dude's OK. We all love this kid over here at BYB. We just want him to be back, and healthy!

Be Read. Get Known.
