MLB Note - New York Yankees Chapman, Aroldis

Sep 19, 2017 - 8:11 AM LHP Aroldis Chapman has seemingly turned it around after a difficult August that saw him lose his closer's job, record a 9.00 ERA and allow home runs to left-handed hitters Yonder Alonso on Aug. 25 and Rafael Devers on Aug. 13. He needed 16 pitches to get the final five outs of Monday's 2-1 win after entering with the bases loaded. In his six appearances in September, Chapman has retired 21 of 25 hitters, struck out 12 while allowing two hits and two walks in seven scoreless appearances. Asked if there was a difference between now and August, manager Joe Girardi wasn't sure. "I don't see a lot of difference in him. We can try to look it, we looked at tape, we looked at a lot of things, and his ball, he's getting swings and misses now for whatever reason. I'm sure there's something different now, but from the naked eye, it's really tough to see."
