Aroldis Chapman Could Return to Yankees' Bullpen Wednesday

New York Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman appears to be nearing a return to action. Manager Aaron Boone confirmed that Chapman would make one more appearance with the team’s Double-A affiliate, the Somerset Patriots before he could be activated. That puts him on track to be available for Wednesday’s series finale against the Oakland Athletics.

How much can the Yankees trust Aroldis Chapman, post-IL stint?

It feels felt Aroldis Chapman had barely contributed for the Yankees this year before going down with an Achilles injury on May 24th. Even when he has played in 202, it has been with the type of mediocre verve that fits a middle reliever. To wit, he has a perfectly fine basic stat line of 6 runs allowed in 14 innings pitched with a 3.86 ERA. Those numbers are not terrible, but they certainly could be a whole lot better.

Yankees’ Aroldis Chapman pitches scoreless inning in rehab outing: ‘looked great’

Aroldis Chapman pitched one scoreless inning in relief Friday night on a rehab assignment at Double-A Somerset as he makes his way back to the Yankees from Achilles tendinitis, giving up a hit and striking out one batter.

Yankees' Aroldis Chapman: Likely to be activated this week

Chapman (Achilles) struck out one over a perfect inning Sunday for Double-A Somerset in his second minor-league rehab appearance. Chapman needed only 11 pitches to retire the side, with his fastball hovering in the 93-to-94 mile-per-hour range and topping out at 98, according to Greg Johnson of The Trentonian. After a pair of clean innings at Somerset over the weekend, Chapman looks like he'll be ready to rejoin the Yankees for their three-game home series with the Athletics that begins Monday. Since Chapman pitched Sunday and the Yankees may not want to make him available on back-to-back days just yet, the club could wait until Tuesday to activate him from the 15-day injured list. Manager Aaron Boone's previous comments have suggested that Chapman will recapture primary closing duties for the Yankees once reinstated, though Clay Holmes could also receive more usage in higher-leverage situations than he had prior to Chapman landing on the shelf.
