Chapman pitched a clean ninth while striking out a batter en route to earning his ninth save of the season in a 1-0 win over the Rays on Wednesday. Chapman was reported to have been pitching through a fingernail issue after he picked up a save in Tuesday's win over the Rays but did not appear to be bothered by it at all after manager Aaron Boone confirmed he was "fine." The hard-throwing lefty has looked as dominant as ever in his age-33 season, as he's third in Major League Baseball with nine saves and has yet to allow a run while sporting a 31:5 K:BB over 15 innings.
Manager Aaron Boone said Chapman is "fine" after pitching through a fingernail issue during Tuesday's win over the Rays, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Chapman's availability going forward shouldn't be in doubt, but it's worth keeping an eye on his status the next couple days. He has yet to allow a run with a 30:5 K:BB through 14 innings.
