Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Sim game coming Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone confirmed Chapman (COVID-19) will face hitters in a live throwing session Tuesday at the Yankees' alternate training site, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Based on how Chapman fares in Tuesday's workout, Boone said the Yankees will map out the remainder of the reliever's throwing program, which should help pinpoint a potential target date for his season debut, per Marly Rivera of While Chapman has been recovering from his positive test for COVID-19, Zack Britton has stepped in as the Yankees' closer, going a perfect 5-for-5 in save chances while having yet to allow a run.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Slated to face live hitters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman (illness) completed a bullpen session Saturday and is expected to face hitters this week, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Chapman continues to build up his arm after missing over two weeks of summer camp due to a positive test for COVID-19. The veteran closer has now tossed multiple bullpens and appears ready to tackle his final hurdle -- facing hitters -- before joining the big-league club. While Chapman remains out, Zack Britton will continue to receive the bulk of save opportunities for the Yankees.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Another bullpen on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman (illness) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Saturday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Chapman is still building up his arm strength after missing all of summer camp due to COVID-19. The southpaw threw a bullpen session Wednesday, and it sounds like he could be cleared to face live hitters next week if everything goes off without a hitch during his BP session this weekend. Zack Britton should continue to close in Chapman's absence.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Throws bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman (illness) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Chapman is still building up his arm strength after missing all of summer camp due to COVID-19. He'll require a couple more bullpen sessions before being cleared for even live batting practice, so his season debut doesn't appear to be imminent. Zack Britton has been closing in his absence.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Bullpen coming soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman (illness) threw Monday and will throw a bullpen session within the next two days, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

Chapman missed most of camp after testing positive for COVID-19. Previous reports suggested that he'd throw a bullpen session Monday, but he's evidently a day or two behind that timetable. Zack Britton will remain the temporary closer until Chapman is activated from the injured list.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Throwing bullpen Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman (illness) will throw a bullpen session Monday, Bryan Hoch of reports. "He's doing great. Everything's gone well with throwing back-to-back days," manager Aaron Boone said of Chapman.

Chapman was cleared to rejoin the Yankees on Friday, and he'll take the mound Monday for the first time since testing positive for COVID-19 in the first half of July. The southpaw has been playing catch off flat ground since clearing the league's protocol, and Boone was encouraged with his progress. Until Chapman is able to return to game action, Zack Britton should continue to serve as the Yankees' closer.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Clear to rejoin Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman (illness) cleared the league's COVID-19 protocols and can rejoin the Yankees, Marly Rivera of reports.

The veteran southpaw joined the Yankees early in summer camp but was placed on the COVID-19 injured list July 11 after testing positive and showing mild symptoms. Chapman should head to the team's alternate training site to begin participating in workouts, though he figures to require some time before reaching game readiness. Zack Britton has two early season saves and should continue operating as the fill-in closer until Chapman is ready for game action.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Produces first negative test
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman (illness) produced his first negative test result for COVID-19 on Saturday, Marly Rivera of reports.

GM Brian Cashman said earlier in the week the veteran left-hander was mostly symptom-free but was still testing positive for coronavirus, so this could be a significant step toward his return. Chapman still must produce a second negative test before being cleared to rejoin the team, while Zack Britton is expected to fill in as the closer until that occurs.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Yet to test negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Brian Cashman said Chapman (illness) is mostly symptom-free but has continued to test positive for COVID-19, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Chapman tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in the month and has been on the injured list ever since. While the lefty has only experienced mild symptoms (fortunately), he has yet to submit the two negative test results required to rejoin the Yankees and is set to miss the start of the season as a result. Chapman likely won't need much ramp-up time once he's cleared, while Zack Britton figures to temporarily fill in as the team's closer in the meantime.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Deemed doubtful for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said he doesn't expect Chapman (illness) to be available for Thursday's season opener versus the Nationals, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

The Yankees placed Chapman on the injured list July 11, two days after the team learned he tested positive for COVID-19. Fortunately for Chapman, he's believed to be displaying only mild symptoms of the coronavirus, but the 32-year-old has yet to submit two negative test results and has yet to rejoin the Yankees. As a reliever, Chapman won't require much ramp-up time once he clears all COVID-19-related protocols, but the Yankees intend to lean on Zack Britton as their primary closer until Chapman is activated.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Tests positive for COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Chapman is reportedly showing mild symptoms. He'll have to be symptom-free with a pair of negative tests before he's allowed to return to the field. While it's possible he's able to do so before Opening Day, which is less than two weeks away, missing out on so much time during an already abbreviated summer camp may mean the Yankees will want him to get a few low-leverage innings under his belt before handling his customary closing duties.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Joins team Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman reported to Yankee Stadium for summer camp on Sunday, Marly Rivera of ESPN reports.

Chapman was not present at the stadium for the team's first official workout Saturday, though manager Aaron Boone clarified that his absence was simply a matter of not finishing intake protocol. The fireballer's arrival Sunday suggests that he is healthy and ready to resume preparation for the 2020 campaign.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Staying in shape despite shutdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman has been lifting weights and strengthening his legs during MLB's hiatus, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Chapman recently posted a video to his Instagram account demonstrating the workout routine he is using to stay in shape. The 32-year-old will reprise his role as Yankees closer when the regular season resumes.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Tosses scoreless inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman made his spring debut in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Orioles, allowing one hit and striking out one in a single scoreless inning.

The spring training season began nearly two weeks ago, but the Yankees waited until Friday to give their veteran closer his first live game action of 2020. Per Pete Caldera of USA Today, Chapman evaluated his outing as "a little out of rhythm, but overall good." With Opening Day less than three weeks away, Chapman should see his Grapefruit League workload ramp up in the coming days.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Not injured but not debuting yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman won't pitch Wednesday against the Phillies as previously reported, but he isn't injured, George A. King III of the New York Post reports.

The news is potentially worrisome, but manager Aaron Boone said there was nothing physically wrong with his closer. Chapman threw a bullpen session Wednesday instead of pitching in the game and could make his Grapefruit League debut Friday against the Orioles.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Spring debut coming Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman will make his spring debut Wednesday against the Phillies, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Chapman hasn't reportedly been battling any injuries, so his delayed start to Grapefruit League action seems to be little more than a 10-year veteran knowing just how many innings he needs to get ready for the regular season. Chapman's 7.7-point drop in strikeout rate last season would be concerning for many pitchers, but when that number still comes in at an excellent 36.2 percent, there's little reason to worry.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Reaches new deal with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman added an extra year to his contract Saturday to keep him with the Yankees through the 2022 season, Jeff Passan of reports.

Chapman's previous deal included $15 million player options for the 2020 and 2021 seasons, and he'll now receive those totals in addition to the $18 million for 2022. The veteran left-hander was again one of the top closers in baseball in 2019 with a 2.21 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 85:25 K:BB while converting 37 of 42 save opportunities. The season may have ended on a sour note with Jose Altuve's walkoff, two-run home in Game 6 of the ALCS, but Chapman should again be a reliable option for saves in 2020.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Ready for ALCS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman (hand) will be ready to go for the ALCS, Mike Mazzeo of Yahoo Sports reports.

Chapman was seen with his hand wrapped during Monday's ALDS victory celebration after getting hit by a bottle. The team never expressed much concern, and it appears that he'll be unaffected for the next round.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Set for workout Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman (hand) will have a full workout Wednesday, Marly Rivera of reports.

Chapman had his left hand wrapped up and was icing it after being hit by a bottle during Tuesday's celebration for advancing to the ALCS. General manager Brian Cashman indicated the team isn't concerned by the issue, but Wednesday's workout could shed some additional light on his status for Game 1 of the championship series, which begins Sunday.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Minimal worry despite wrapped hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman was seen with his hand wrapped during the Yankees' ALDS victory celebration Monday, but the team isn't concerned, Dan Martin of the New York Post reports.

Chapman said that he was hit in the hand with a bottle but isn't particularly worried. General manager Brian Cashman reiterated that the Yankees weren't worried by the issue, but it's possible he's still affected for the start of the ALCS despite the initial optimism.
