Encouraging update on Aroldis Chapman. He’ll re-join the #Yankees this weekend and could be activated “sometime next week,” Aaron Boone said.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Yankees bullpen is saved. Now, the bullpen wasn’t particularly in danger but having Chapman out there is just an automatic scoreless inning. There’s a maniac on the mound throwing 103mph and not even aiming it. Opposing hitters swing just to get out of the batter’s box.
Chapman has a 2.11 ERA and 84 strikeouts in just 47 innings. Butter. Name a better closer. Whatever name you said is a lie. When Chapman has two knees that don’t hurt, he’s a beast. Fuck it, the Yankees should just start him. It would make more sense than their decision to start Sonny Gray earlier this week.
Dellin Betances, Zach Britton, David Robertson and Aroldis Chapman vs. Everyone. I have all of my money on the Yankees bullpen. This bullpen has 654 strikeouts this season which is the third most in MLB history. This is a historic pitching staff with Chapman back.
Yankees in 4.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you’re hyped for the return of Aroldis Chapman. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
