NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Yankees have signed former UCLA right-hander James Kaprielian, the 16th overall pick in the June draft.

Kaprielian agreed to a minor league contract Wednesday with a $2.65 million signing bonus.

The 6-foot-4 Kaprielian was 10-4 with a 2.03 ERA and had 114 strikeouts in 106 2-3 innings for the Bruins as a junior. In May, Kaprielian combined with David Berg to throw the first no-hitter in UCLA history, a 1-0 victory over Arizona in 10 innings.

NOTES: OF Carlos Beltran (strained left oblique) went 2 for 2 with a walk as the DH for Class A Tampa against Charlotte in his first minor league rehab game. He is eligible to come off the 15-day DL on Friday.
