Fantasy Impact

Chapman is now 17-for-21 on saves this season and has allowed just one hit in three innings this month. Dellin Betances has been scored upon in four of his last seven appearances, giving up the closer's role to Chapman. It should be a safe bet that Chapman keeps the closer's role and he should be frequently used down the stretch.
