      Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Will not face criminal charges

      Chapman will not face criminal charges in relation to an Oct. 30 domestic dispute at his home in Davie, Florida, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. While prosecutors have opted against filing charges, punishment from Major League Baseball remains a very real possibility for Chapman. According to a police report, Chapman admitted that he fired eight shots into a wall and window while locked in a his garage after the initial dispute with his girlfriend. MLB's new domestic violence policy allows commissioner Rob Manfred to impose discipline even if there is not a criminal conviction. Speaking on the topic Thursday, Manfred said, "When you have a new policy, the first ones take on a special significance in terms of tone and precedent and all those things. I'm going to be sure that I know everything I could possibly know about each of these cases before I make any decisions." Manager Joe Girardi said last week that Chapman will enter spring training as the Yankees' closer.

      Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Will enter spring training as closer

      Manager Joe Girardi said on Monday's edition of Yankees Hot Stove on YES Network that Chapman will enter spring training as the team's closer. Although Chapman eventually found a new home via a Dec. 28 trade from Cincinnati to New York, an earlier deal to the Dodgers was nixed due to a domestic-violence allegation, which is expected to impact him at some point during the upcoming campaign. Nevertheless, his track record in the closer's role has translated to 30-plus saves in each of the last four seasons, usurping that of the last year's closer Andrew Miller and making Chapman the logical man for the job.

      Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Traded to Yankees

      Chapman was traded to the Yankees, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports. The Yankees gave up four minor-league prospects to acquire Chapman from the Reds, nearly four weeks after the planned trade to the Dodgers last month was nixed due to the closer's domestic-violence allegations stemming from an incident in late October. With their newest acquisition, Chapman now joins Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances to form a devastating power-arm bullpen, and it doesn't seem as if any of them will be on the move at the moment. While sources indicate the Yankees are expecting to lose the 28-year-old for some portion of the season due the alleged domestic-violence incident, it doesn't appear as if he will miss the entire season. Thus his role will likely be decided once the MLB officially makes its decision on the alleged incident, but for now the Yankees look to have one of the strongest bullpens in all of baseball.

      Dodgers' Aroldis Chapman: Trade to Dodgers in limbo

      Reds' Aroldis Chapman: Trade to Dodgers pending physical

      Chapman has been traded to the Dodgers for two prospects pending a physical, Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports. Details regarding the prospects will likely surface soon, but the deal would give the Dodgers a premier 1-2 punch in the back of the bullpen assuming that the plan is to pair Chapman with current close Kenley Jansen. Given the extremely high cost of starting pitching on the free-agent market this winter, the Dodgers appear to be among the teams interested strengthening the bullpen as a way of reducing the impact of back-end starters.

      Reds' Aroldis Chapman: Will be tendered contract

      Chapman will be tendered a contract by the Reds on Wednesday. This was a no-brainer, because while Chapman figures to receive more than $10 million in his third year of arbitration, he's worth every penny and more as one of baseball's most dominant closers. The Reds have acknowledged that they are fielding offers for Chapman, and something will likely get done before 2016, though it's not entirely clear who the frontrunners are.
