Aroldis Chapman struggles again

Aroldis Chapman allowed two runs on two hits to lock down a Yankees win over the Mets on Tuesday. Chapman struck out a batter and allowed a two-run home run, earning his 16th save of the season. He has a 3.89 ERA and 1.33 WHIP this season.

Fantasy Impact

After a couple rough appearances for Chapman, a smooth outing was important, and Chapman disappointed. Dellin Betances got a save last night, so the pressure was on a bit, and Chapman now has a 10.39 ERA in August (4 1/3 innings). Chapman is still a top-10 RP, but his woes in August need to be monitored.

Aroldis Chapman roughed up

Aroldis Chapman got a blown save and loss on Sunday night, allowing two runs on one hit. Chapman struck out three and walked one, allowing a game-tying home run to Rafael Devers in the ninth inning. He has a 3.48 ERA and 1.31 WHIP this season.

Fantasy Impact

Chapman has made three appearances this month, allowing a run in his last two, and has not looked good. He has allowed six base runners in 3 1/3 innings (walking four batters) and Devers' home run was the first by a left-handed batter off of Chapman since 2011. Chapman is still a top-10 RP, but his recent issues are troublesome.

Aroldis Chapman walks tight rope

Aroldis Chapman earned a save on Friday, but it was not pretty. Chapman allowed a run on three walks, aided by Aaron Hicks' double play in the Yankees' 5-4 win. He has a 3.06 ERA and 1.30 WHIP this season.

Fantasy Impact

Chapman had not walked a batter in six consecutive outings, allowing just three baserunners, but nearly blew the game on Friday. He earned his 15th save in 18 attempts and has now had two bumpy outings in August, needing 21 pitches to earn a save against the Indians on August 5. The Yankees need to get Chapman more work or he will continue to struggle.

Fantasy Impact

Chapman now has four saves and two wins in his last six appearances, quickly recouping value.

Aroldis Chapman back on track

Aroldis Chapman pitched 2/3 of an inning against the Tigers on Monday night, earning a save. Called on in a based-loaded, one out situation, Chapman got a force play and a strikeout to lock down the Yankees' 7-3 victory. He has a 2.97 ERA and 1.25 WHIP this season.

Fantasy Impact

While Chapman had issues at the beginning of the month, he now has four consecutive perfect outings, earning two wins and two saves in the process. He has also struck out six batters in his last 3 2/3 innings, finishing the month with a 2.77 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 16 strikeouts in 13 innings. Chapman is a back to being a top-flight closer and should be valued as such going forward.
