Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Saturday that Chapman could have a second hearing regarding his appeal of the three-game ban stemming from a contest on Sept. 1, which would delay the suspension until next season, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.
Chapman has vigorously argued against the punishment for throwing at Brosseau's head, a source told Jack Curry of YES Network. He told reporters following the game that he didn't intentionally do it.
The suspension marks the first time the hard-throwing lefty was punished for an on-field infraction. He was handed a 30-game ban in March 2016 for violating MLB's domestic violence policy.
