Aroldis Chapman converts second save Friday

Aroldis Chapman struck out the side in a perfect ninth inning to convert his second save of the season in Friday's win over the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Impact

Chapman's second save was also his first since the end of March, as the opportunities just have not been there through the first few weeks of the season. Expect that to change in the coming weeks as the Yankees and their powerful lineup heat up.

Aroldis Chapman dominant in converting second save

Aroldis Chapman pitched a perfect ninth inning while striking out all three batters he faced on Friday night against the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact

Chapman was at his best on Friday, mixing in sliders and fastballs to keep the Tigers hitters completely off balance. He has 14 strikeouts in just seven innings and remains one of the top closing options in fantasy.

Aroldis Chapman pitches scoreless inning in loss to the Orioles

Aroldis Chapman pitched the 9th inning striking out one in a 8-7 loss to the Orioles in 12 innings.

Fantasy Impact

Aroldis Chapman so far on the season has a 1.80 ERA with one save and nine strikeouts. He looks to rebound from a relatively disappointing 2017. Chapman has been a closer for six seasons now, and during that time, 19 different closers have saved at least 40 games in a season. Remarkably, despite his 100 mph fastball, filthy slider and elite strikeout totals, Chapman is not on that list. His raw ability elevates him into the upper tier of fantasy closers.

Aroldis Chapman turns in scoreless inning

Aroldis Chapman struck out one over a scoreless inning of work in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

Fantasy Impact

While it wasn't a save opportunity, Chapman got the job done. The Yankees likely wanted to get him some work in as he hadn't pitched since March 30. He's up to six strikeouts over his first three innings of work.

Aroldis Chapman nails down save for the Yankees

Aroldis Chapman gave up a run on two hits but struck out three in the ninth inning Friday to collect his first save of the season in a 4-2 win over the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact

Chapman is coming off a disappointing 2017 season but should still be considered one of the top closers in the game. The 30-year-old lefty can get you strikeouts and saves which is very valuable in most fantasy leagues.
