Chapman has been nearly unhittable all season, as he's allowed just two hits and three walks in 11 innings. The Yankees' closer has yet to give up a run, and he owns a sparkling 26:3 K:BB in 11 appearances. He remains perfect in save chances, with all seven coming in his last eight outings.
Chapman struck out two in a perfect ninth inning to earn the save against the Tigers on Sunday.
Chapman tossed a perfect ninth inning against Detroit on Saturday, and he replicated his performance Sunday to earn his sixth save in his last seven appearances. The southpaw has posted a 0.50 WHIP and 24:3 K:BB in 10 scoreless innings across his first 10 appearances of the season.
Chapman recorded two strikeouts and didn't allow a baserunner during the ninth inning to earn the save during Saturday's 6-4 win over Detroit.

Chapman struck out three and allowed one walk in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Thursday against Cleveland.

Chapman gave up a hit and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Monday to record his first save of the season in a 3-1 win over the Blue Jays.
Randal Grichuk led off the ninth with a double, but Chapman let him get no further and needed only 12 pitches (nine strikes) to nail down the save. The southpaw has been absolutely filthy to begin the season, keeping a 0.00 ERA through four innings, and Cavan Biggio's flyout Monday was the first batter Chapman has set down on something other than a strikeout.
Chapman (1-0) struck out the side and allowed one hit during his lone inning of work Sunday against the Rays, earning his first win of the season.
Chapman pitched the ninth with the game tied 4-4, and he was absolutely filthy -- despite allowing a two-out double to Mike Zunino, Chapman struck out the side and threw 10 of his 13 pitches for strikes. Chapman has yet to record a save this season, but he has pitched three straight scoreless outings while fanning nine across three innings of work.
Chapman walked one batter in a scoreless ninth inning during Monday's 7-0 win over Baltimore. He struck out three batters.
After serving a two-game suspension to start the year, Chapman looked impressive in his 2021 debut. He threw 13 of 19 pitches for strikes and made fairly quick work of the heart of Baltimore's lineup. Of course, he'll usually work in save situations moving forward.
Chapman will be able to make his season debut Sunday against the Blue Jays after completing his two-game suspension.
Chad Green ended up picking up the save in Saturday's 5-3 win, but Chapman should step back into his familiar role as closer now that he's served the suspension he received last September for throwing at the Rays' Mike Brosseau. Chapman only pitched 11.2 innings in the abbreviated 2020 campaign, but he was excellent as usual when he was available, giving up four earned runs on six hits and four walks while striking out 22.
Chapman (suspension) is slated to pitch every other day through the end of spring training, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.
The veteran closer tossed a scoreless inning in Monday's Grapefruit League game against Philadelphia, allowing one walk while striking out a pair. He has not allowed a run or a hit while posting a 5:1 K:BB in spring play, though he has hurled only four innings. It appears Chapman will get more work going forward as he prepares for his 12th big-league campaign.
Chapman (suspension) will try out his splitter during spring training and plans to incorporate the pitch into his arsenal more frequently this season, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Chapman threw the splitter only three times last season, but he believes that he can effectively make it a more consistent part of his arsenal moving forward. "I believe it's definitely a pitch for me; I feel that I've incorporated that into my pitch mix," Chapman said through an interpreter. "I believe I'm going to use it more, unlike the changeup where I used it just a couple of times here and there. I feel really good with it." If he's able to find success with the pitch, Chapman could be even more dominant than he has already proven to be as one of MLB's top closers.
Chapman's suspension was reduced from three games to two Thursday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Chapman was issued his three-game suspension in early September after throwing a fastball over Mike Brosseau's head. However, he'll only have to miss two games at the beginning of the 2021 season following his appeal. Zack Britton could handle any save chances during Chapman's brief absence, although the suspension shouldn't have an impact on the southpaw's season-long fantasy value.
Chapman allowed zero hits and had two strikeouts and one walk over 1.1 innings to earn the save in Thursday's Game 4 win over the Rays.
The veteran left-hander entered with a three-run lead during the eighth inning and the Yankees tacked on another run, so he came back for the ninth with a comfortable cushion. It was Chapman's first appearance of the series and second of the playoffs, and manager Aaron Boone figures to be aggressive in his bullpen usage during Friday's winner-take-all Game 5.
Chapman threw the final two innings of the Yankees' win Wednesday in Game 2 of the AL Wild Card Series against Cleveland, striking out four while allowing just one hit and zero runs.
Chapman hadn't been asked to record more than three outs in any of his 13 regular-season appearances, but he was called upon with men on first and second and none out in a tie game in the bottom of the eighth this time around. He immediately relinquished the lead, allowing an RBI single to Cesar Hernandez on his very first pitch, but a strikeout and a double play got him out of the inning without further damage. After the Yankees scored a pair of runs to take the lead in the top of the ninth, he finished the job and the series in the bottom of the inning, recording one groundout and three strikeouts (with one batter reaching first on a passed ball). He'll gets a rest now, as Game 1 of the ALDS against the Rays won't take place until Monday.
Chapman's hearing regarding his appeal of a three-game suspension will not take place until next season, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
The decision may be pandemic-related, as the league is unable to gather together all the witnesses. Chapman was initially hit with a three-game ban for throwing near Mike Brosseau's head back on Sept. 1, but if he does end up missing any time, it will be at the start of next season rather than during the final week of a playoff race. That's a big boost for both the Yankees and for those who have Chapman on their fantasy teams this season.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone indicated Saturday that Chapman could have a second hearing on the appeal of his suspension, potentially delaying it until next season, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Chapman was suspended three games in early September for throwing a fastball over Mike Brosseau's head near the end of a win over Tampa Bay. The veteran subsequently appealed the suspension, and it looks as though the matter will take longer than anticipated to be resolved. If Chapman's potential suspension does carry over to next season, that is good news for fantasy managers who have rostered Chapman and could otherwise be faced with losing the closer for nearly half of the final week of the campaign.
Chapman gave up a hit and struck out two in two-thirds of an inning Thursday to record his third save of the season in a 10-7 win over the Blue Jays.
Jonathan Holder started the ninth inning protecting a 10-3 lead, but after he got tagged for two runs and loaded the bases with one out, Chapman got the call and immediately gave up a two-run single to Bo Bichette. The Yankees closer then settled down and fanned the next two batters to end the game. Chapman appears to be back in his usual form -- he's struck out multiple hitters in six straight appearances, posting a 1.59 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 13:2 K:BB through 5.2 innings over that stretch.
Chapman fired one scoreless inning Sunday as he earned the save against the Orioles. He allowed no baserunners while striking out two.
Although he was pitching on a second consecutive day, Chapman remained effective with another scoreless outing. The hard-throwing southpaw now carries a 4.50 ERA over eight innings during his abbreviated 2020 season. Chapman's appeal of a three-game suspension that he received earlier this month is expected to be heard Monday, so it's possible that he could see limited work over the coming week.
Chapman's appeal of the three-game suspension he received earlier this month is expected to be heard Monday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Chapman received the three-game ban after throwing a pitch near the head of the Rays' Mike Brosseau in a Sept. 1 game. If Chapman's suspension isn't reduced at all and he's forced to sit out beginning with Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, fantasy managers may have a tough time justifying keeping him active during the Yankees' six-game week.
