Report: Yankees contemplating DFA'ing Chapman
Regardless, New York reportedly doesn't have any plans to bring back the seven-time All-Star when he becomes a free agent after the 2022 season.
The struggling left-hander has posted career-worst numbers across the board, including a 4.36 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 10.4 K/9. The 34-year-old lost his closing job and has dealt with multiple injuries.
Chapman owns a 2.91 ERA, 448 strikeouts, and 153 saves over 311 appearances since joining the Yankees before the 2016 campaign. He was traded to the Chicago Cubs that season and helped the team win a World Series before rejoining New York in free agency.
