Quiet! Yankees deny Aroldis Chapman’s relapse of finger injury

New York Yankees showed an improvement in their departments as the bullpen during the recent days of the 2021 Season of MLB. One of the most solid elements on the mound is Aroldis chapman, but during the game against the Boston Red Sox he hesitated and it was speculated that he was suffering from a relapse of injury of the finger that has presented in the year, which Yankees came out to deny.

Aroldis Chapman had not allowed a run until before his exit to the mound during the game against the Boston Red Sox on Saturday, as although he did get the save, he was hit by a home run against him.

This led to speculation that a relapse of the injury to the finger, specifically the nail, could be present, as the speed of his four-seam fastball decreased to 96.8 miles per hour (mph).

Given this, Aaron Boone, manager of the New York Yankees, came out to declare that the Cuban “is physically well” and that “sometimes it takes him a few pitches to pick up his speed.”

Aroldis Chapman has seen action in 58 games in the 2021 MLB Season with the New York Yankees. In this time he has managed to make 29 saves of 33 opportunities, as well as an ERA of 3.54.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
