SP - OAK
Oakland Athletics SP James Kaprielian pitched five innings on Thursday, striking out one, walking three, and allowing three hits for two earned runs in the A's 5-3 win over the Tigers.
Kaprielian pitched an average game on Thursday as he allowed two runs on just three hits and showed a lack of control with 30 balls thrown in 75 pitchers. The starting pitcher now has an ERA of 4.97 and is not worth rostering at the moment.
Oakland Athletics SP James Kaprielian pitched 5 2/3 innings on Saturday, striking out seven, walking two, and allowing three hits for one earned run in the A's 1-0 loss to the Twins.
Kaprielian was rather efficient on the mound on Saturday striking out seven batters over just under six innings. The A's starting pitcher has an ERA of 5.87 and threw 67 of 99 pitches for strikes but was chalked with the loss to an awful performance by the A's on offence providing zero run support.
Oakland Athletics SP James Kaprielian pitched two innings on Sunday, striking out two, walking four, and allowing three hits for four earned runs in the A's 7-3 loss to the Guardians.
Kaprielian saw just his first start of the 2022 season on Sunday and it was rough as he only made it through two innings on a rather high 57 pitches, 30 of which were strikes. The 28 year old is unlikely to pitch much this year especially after an outing like he had on Sunday, the only reason Kaprielian was even pitching was due to the lack of rest between games for the rest of the A's rotation to be able to pitch.
James Kaprielian earned the win on Saturday against the Angels, allowing two hits over six shutout innings with five strikeouts.

It is now the third straight start in which Kaprielian hasn't thrown more than four innings.

His ERA is now up just over 4.00 on the season.
