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.
