Aroldis Chapman nearing throwing program

Aroldis Chapman has been shut down for 10 days, after which point the Yankees will evaluate a throwing program. He's on the disabled list with a shoulder injury.

Fantasy Impact

The Yankees are taking heat considering Chapman reported feeling pain in the shoulder since the middle of April. He wasn't placed on the disabled list until the middle of May. Early indications are that he'll be out roughly a month, but owners will need to monitor the situation as a clearer timeframe will come as Chapman resumes throwing.

Aroldis Chapman placed on 10-day DL with left rotator cuff inflammation

Yankees' closer Aroldis Chapman has been placed on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to Saturday with rotator cuff inflammation. RHP Chad Green has been recalled from AAA in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Impact

Chapman has earned seven saves so far on the year with a 3.55 ERA. He has struggled a bit recently and maybe a shoulder issue is part of the reason why. General Manager Brian Cashman stated, "he's going to be shut down for two weeks and then we'll re-assess... you're probably looking at a minimum of a month if everything goes right." Look for Dellin Betances to take over as closer for the Yankees in Chapman's absence. Betances owns a 0.77 ERA and 17 strikeouts across 11 2/3 innings this season.

Aroldis Chapman blows first save

Aroldis Chapman suffered his first blown save of the season on Sunday, surrendering three runs on three hits and issuing a pair of walks in just 2/3 of an inning against the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

So... you're saying he's human. Coming into the game, Chapman had given up just one run on the season but found the going rough against his former club this time out, putting two men on right from the start. Chapman's ERA and WHIP have jumped as a result, sitting now at 3.00 and 1.25 respectively, but his 20 strikeouts in 12 innings of work is still outstanding. No reason to worry about the game's top closer.

Aroldis Chapman with seventh save

Aroldis Chapman pitched around a two-base error by Chase Headley, locking down the Yankees' 3-2 win over the Cubs. Chapman struck out two batters and has multiple strikeouts in four of his last five outings. He has a 0.79 ERA this season.

Fantasy Impact

Chapman has 18 strikeouts in 11 1/3 innings this season and is third in the American League with seven saves. The Yankees are playing well, so he will continue to get save opportunities, and his high strikeouts and 0.88 WHIP make him very attractive. Chapman is the top RP in baseball and should be valued as such.

Aroldis Chapman notches another save against Toronto

Aroldis Chapman pitched a perfect ninth on Tuesday to get his sixth save of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Chapman is locked in as one of the best closers in the game. The Yankees are playing well right now, so Champman should continue to be in the right posistion to get saves.
