  • Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Holds on for ninth save

    Chapman picked up the save in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Orioles after pitching the ninth inning, giving up one run on three hits while striking out one.

    Called upon to protect a two-run lead in the bottom of the ninth, Chapman made quick work of the first two batters he faced before running into a little trouble with two outs. He surrendered two consecutive singles and then Ryan McKenna ripped a double, scoring Tyler Nevin and narrowing the deficit to 5-4. Chapman was able to get Cedric Mullins to pop out to end the game, stranding two on base and securing his ninth save of the year. After opening the season with 10.1 scoreless frames, the left-hander has allowed a run in four consecutive appearances. Although he's struggled a little recently, the 34-year-old is 9-for-9 on save chances this year and owns a 2.63 ERA and 1.46 WHIP with 15 strikeouts in 13.2 innings.

  • Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Takes loss Saturday

    Chapman (0-1) was tagged with the loss Saturday against the White Sox, allowing one run on two hits and a walk over one-third of an inning.

    After the Yankees got to White Sox closer Liam Hendriks for a game-tying run in the top of the ninth inning, Chapman was summoned to try to send the game to extra frames. He retired the first batter he faced but then gave up a single, walk and another single as Chicago pulled out the win. Chapman didn't allow any earned runs over his first 12 appearances of the season but has now yielded a run in back-to-back outings. His 1.37 WHIP and 6.9 BB/9 are red flags, but the veteran closer is 8-for-8 in save chances on the campaign, so his job appears safe for now.

  • Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Secures eighth save

    Chapman earned the save after allowing one run on one hit during the ninth inning of Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Blue Jays. He had one strikeout and one walk.

    The veteran lefty surrendered a leadoff double to Santiago Espinal, who advanced to third base on a wild pitch and scored on a sacrifice fly from George Springer, and he then retired the next two batters. It's the first run allowed by Chapman this season, but he remains a perfect 8-for-8 in save opportunities. Overall he has a 0.79 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 12:8 K:BB over 11.1 innings.

  • Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Notches seventh save

    Chapman picked up the save Monday against the Rangers after allowing one hit in a scoreless inning.

    Chapman was able to hold off the Rangers in the ninth after New York took a 1-0 lead in the eighth, despite surrendering a two-out single to left. The flamethrower has yet to allow a run on the season and has given up just three hits and seven walks through 11 appearances (10.1 innings).

  • Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Secures sixth save

    Chapman allowed one hit and a walk in a scoreless ninth inning while earning a save over the Royals on Sunday.

    Chapman gave up a single and a walk with two outs in the ninth but escaped with his sixth save in as many chances. The veteran southpaw has a lackluster 11:7 K:BB but has yet to give up a run through 9.1 innings this season. He's recorded a save in five of his last six appearances.

  • Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Registers fifth save

    Chapman saved Saturday's 3-0 win over the Royals, pitching a 1-2-3 ninth inning.

  • Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Notches fourth save

    Chapman earned a save over Cleveland on Friday with a scoreless ninth inning. He struck out two batters and allowed one hit.

    Chapman was tagged with a leadoff double by Josh Naylor but still managed to lock down the 4-1 victory. The hard-throwing lefty has now converted all four of his save chances this season and has yet to allow a run through 6.1 innings. He's earned a save in three consecutive appearances, all coming in the last four days.

  • Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Nails down save Wednesday

    Chapman secured his third save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning against the Tigers on Wednesday. He allowed one hit and did not record a strikeout.

    Chapman is now 3-for-3 in save chances this season and his ERA is still spotless. The 34-year-old lefty is working with diminished velocity early on, with his average fastball down a couple ticks, and the strikeouts are down with it. It hasn't really mattered to this point as opponents are still having trouble squaring Chapman up, but it would be nice if he weren't walking such a fine line with the free passes, as he's issued four in 5.1 innings.

  • Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Secures second save

    Chapman had one strikeout and didn't allow a baserunner during the ninth inning to record the save Tuesday against the Tigers.

    The veteran left-hander had walked four batters and recorded only one out in his past two appearances, but he had no issues Tuesday and retired the side in order with only nine pitches. Chapman was shaky of late but had no real damage done and he has yet to allow an earned run or a hit this season while converting both of his save chances.

  • Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Can't close door Thursday

    Chapman walked all three batters he faced in the ninth inning of Thursday's game against the Blue Jays.

    With the Yankees up 3-0 heading into the ninth inning, Chapman was summoned to finish off the contest. However, the veteran closer was unable to find the strike zone, throwing just four of 16 pitches for strikes and walking all three hitters who came to the plate. Manager Aaron Boone then turned to Michael King, who recorded the first save of his career by stranding the bases loaded. Chapman was thus spared an even uglier stat line, though his fantasy managers will no doubt bemoan the missed opportunity to pick up a save. The fireballer entered the contest having registered a 5:0 K:BB and allowing no hits over three scoreless innings on the season, and given his long history of success, there's little chance that the team will lose confidence in him as a result of Thursday's messy outing. He should remain among the most secure fantasy closers, but given his history of high walk rates, occasional outings like Thursday's are to be expected.

  • Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Picks up first save

    Chapman struck out one batter in a perfect inning Saturday to earn a save against the Red Sox.

    The veteran closer was used in a non-save situation Friday and threw only 12 pitches, so he was able to take the mound for a second straight game Saturday. Despite a one-out error by Isiah Kiner-Falefa that allowed the tying run to come to the plate, Chapman again needed just 12 tosses -- 10 of which were strikes -- to set Boston down and earn his first save of the campaign. It has been a promising start to the campaign for Chapman, who has struck out three of the seven batters he has faced thus far.

  • Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Tosses scoreless Opening Day frame

    Chapman pitched a perfect inning in the Yankees' 11-inning win over Boston on Friday, striking out two.

    Chapman was summoned in the top of the ninth inning and tasked with keeping the game tied, and he did so with aplomb, throwing eight of 12 pitches for strikes and whiffing two batters in the perfect frame. It was a positive debut for the veteran fireballer after he endured one of the least effective campaigns of his career last season, though he still managed 30 saves in 34 chances. Chapman should earn the vast majority of save opportunities for the Yankees again this season and remains a stable fantasy closer despite being on the downswing of his career.

  • Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: May see use in non-save situations

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Thursday he's entertaining the idea of using Chapman more in the eighth inning this season to keep the closer sharp during lengthier periods in between save chances, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. "It will serve him well at times and protect other guys at times," Boone said. "It will help us as a staff and keep Aroldis more regular rather than let him get to five, six days without pitching."

    More specifically, Boone said he prefers to get Chapman some more work in the eighth inning of tight games, rather than asking the lefty to pitch in low-adrenaline blowouts or post-game bullpen sessions for the sake of staying sharp. While Chapman could still miss out on a few save chances if he's summoned when his team is trailing or tied and the Yankees later take the lead, the prospect of the 34-year-old getting more high-leverage, non-save-situation opportunities could help him avoid the ratio damage many traditional closers often take on when pitching in blowouts. The arrangement may also help Chapman pick up more innings, which would heighten the impact of his strikeouts, ERA and WHIP. He's thrown no more than 60 frames in any of the last six seasons, with his innings counts often lagging behind some of baseball's other ace relievers.
