Aroldis Chapman earns victory vs Red Sox Saturday

Aroldis Chapman pitched 1 1/3 innings, allowing no runs on no hits and no walks while striking out two in New York’s 3-2 win in Boston on Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact

Chapman pitched more than one inning for the first time all season and earned his first win of the year on Saturday night. He recorded four outs the night after pitching a lights-out 8th inning on Friday, pitching in back-to-back games for the second straight time. Chapman is 1-3 on the year with a 3.94 ERA and 34 strikeouts in 29 2/3 innings across 34 appearances. Since July 26, Chapman owns a 0.00 ERA with a 10:1 K:BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings across nine appearances. The lefty has been getting ahead of batters of late making his slider more effective and it’s getting more swings and misses. One has to wonder, given Clay Holmes’ recent struggles l, whether or not Chapman may regain his closer role or if manager Aaron Boone will opt to keep pitching Chapman as a setup man and high leverage situations.

Aroldis Chapman (Achilles) activated off the IL

The New York Yankees activated Aroldis Chapman off the 15-day injured list prior to Friday's game against the Guardians.

Fantasy Impact

With the recent success of Clay Holmes, it is not exactly clear if he is expected to remain the Yankees closer or if Chapman is expected to regain the role. Either way, it is likely they both maintain a late-inning role out of the bullpen.

Aroldis Chapman (Achilles) expected to be activated this week

The Yankees anticipate activating Aroldis Chapman off the injured list this week.

Fantasy Impact

Chapman tossed a hitless inning with one strikeout on Sunday with Double-A Somerset in what was his second rehab appearance. He is expected to remain the Yankees closer when activated, though Clay Holmes is also expected to maintain a late-inning role out of the Yankees bullpen.

Aroldis Chapman to make rehab appearance Sunday, then return as closer

Aroldis Chapman will appear for the Yankees' Double-A affiliate on Sunday and then could be activated. He will return to the ninth-inning role, according to Aaron Boone.

Fantasy Impact

Clay Holmes has performed extremely well in Chapman's absence, so it's a bit surprising to see Boone be so unequivocal on Chapman's role. Nevertheless, Chapman has been the Yankees' closer for years and Boone has stuck with him despite bouts of ineffectiveness, so this isn't exactly the most surprising news. Managers should expect to be able to activate Chapman next week.

Aroldis Chapman (achilles) to begin rehab assignment this weekend

Aroldis Chapman (achilles) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Somerset this weekend.

Fantasy Impact

Chapman will likely return to his role as closer once he passes all of the tests during his rehab assignment, although Clay Holmes will likely still be used in crucial late-game situations as well. The left-hander carries a career-low 9.64 K/9 ratio to go along with a 3.86 ERA and 1.64 WHIP with nine saves in 17 relief appearances this season.
