Aroldis Chapman Has Tested Positive for COVID-19

New York Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman has tested positive for COVID-19, according to manager Aaron Boone who made the announcement this past Saturday. Chapman, along with D.J. LeMahieu and Luis Cessa, are the three Yankees players to have tested positive for the virus since camp began in the summer. Chapman is a six-time All-Star and finished with 37 saves recording an ERA of 2.21 last season in 57 innings. Also, he was named the Mariano Rivera American League Reliever of the Year with an impressive 13.4 strikeouts per nine innings.

What does this mean for the New Yankees? If the Yankees closer misses significant time, then you can expect Zack Britton to fill the void. Remember, he was the closer for the Baltimore Orioles in 2016 and led the American League with 47 saves and a 0.54 ERA that year. The New York Yankees should be fine as they have one of the best bullpens in baseball.

We wish Aroldis Chapman a speedy recovery…
