Yankees | Aroldis Chapman logs second save

Sat, 14 May 2016 18:26:29 -0700

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman struck out two in a perfect ninth inning to earn his second save in as many chances in a 2-1 win over the Chicago White Sox Saturday, May 14.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman has five strikeouts in three innings since returning, and he should make up for the time he lost serving his suspension in short order.

Yankees | Aroldis Chapman makes debut

Mon, 09 May 2016 23:46:24 -0700

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman allowed one earned run and two hits with two strikeouts in an inning of work Monday, May 9, against the Kansas City Royals in his regular season debut.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman was working in a non-save situation which is never a good spot for closers. It was a good spot to knock off the rust, and he is going to be a must-start fantasy option across all formats sooner rather than later.

Yankees | Aroldis Chapman to pitch Monday

Mon, 09 May 2016 13:41:35 -0700

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman could be used in the ninth inning regardless of the score against the Kansas City Royals Monday, May 9, according to manager Joe Girardi. Chapman is returning from his suspension Monday, and SP Ivan Nova is on a 75 pitch count, which means the Yankees will need to use their bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: This is just another reminder that you need to get Chapman back into all of your starting lineups if you haven't already done so. Andrew Miller's fantasy stock takes a hit, but he's still useful in all seasonal leagues because of his strikeout abilities.

Yankees | Aroldis Chapman returning Monday

Mon, 09 May 2016 10:04:46 -0700

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman returns to the Yankees Monday, May 9, after serving a 29-game suspension after a domestic violence incident in the offseason. His average fastball velocity is 99.4 mph since the start of last year, and he threw 452 pitches of at least 100 mph in 2015. No other player threw more than 143 pitches that reached triple digits.

Fantasy Tip: Return the flamethrower to all of your starting lineups. Andrew Miller, who had six saves in Chapman's absence, will see his fantasy value drop without consistent save chances. However, because of Miller's 15.4 strikeouts per nine innings and 0.00 ERA, he'll remain relevant everywhere, especially in leagues that reward holds.

Yankees | Aroldis Chapman set to return soon

Tue, 03 May 2016 17:48:24 -0700

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman is expected to make two more appearances in the Gulf Coast League before Monday, May 9, when his 30-game suspension is set to expire. Manager Joe Girardi said Chapman would get the call, should the Yankees enter the ninth inning with a lead on that night.

Fantasy Tip: This is all very positive news for his fantasy owners, as it looks like Chapman will get to close right away, rather than wait a period of time to be eased back in. While the Yankees have struggled thus far through the season's first month, Chapman should still be one of the best closers to own in the league.

Yankees | Aroldis Chapman throws off mound

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 23:50:21 -0700

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman threw from a mound Monday, April 11, and is expected to pitch in an extended spring game this week. He is serving a 30-game suspension under baseball's new domestic violence policy. He was able to field and do conditioning drills at the team's complex in Tampa Tuesday, April 12.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman will be back in the next few weeks and he'll be a top-notch fantasy option once he assumes the closer role on a full-time basis.

Yankees | Aroldis Chapman shaky Thursday

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 11:55:41 -0800

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman was shaky in his first spring appearance Thursday, March 10, and he couldn't even get out of his inning of work. He walked in a run and hit two batters to load the bases with one out. However, he was reaching 98 mph on the radar gun.

Fantasy Tip: Remember, Chapman will start the year with a 30-game suspension for a domestic-violence incident in the offseason. As long as you plan for his early season absence, Chapman still profiles as a top-three fantasy fireman.

Yankees | Aroldis Chapman back May 9

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 06:44:46 -0800

Updating previous reports, New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman will be eligible to return May 9 against the Kansas City Royals after serving his 30-game suspension, WFAN's Sweeny Murti said on MLB Network's "Hot Stove." If the team experiences rainouts, he'll still be eligible to return that day. He'll be able to pitch in spring training and extended spring games after the season begins.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman missed time due to injury in 2014 and still had 36 saves, a 2.00 ERA, a 0.83 WHIP and 106 K's in 54 innings. Chapman remains one of the high-end relievers in fantasy despite his 30-game suspension.

Yankees | Aroldis Chapman suspended 30 games

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 13:02:42 -0800

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman has been suspended for 30 games by Major League Baseball. Chapman does not plan to appeal, saying he did not harm his girlfriend.

Fantasy Tip: For now it will be business as usual for the Yankees. Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller settle in to the closer spots for the time being. Hang onto Chapman in your leagues, as he will be utilized the minute his suspension ends.
