Yankees | Aroldis Chapman deal imminent?

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 22:04:14 -0700

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman is close to being traded, according to sources, and the Yankees plan to hold on to RP Andrew Miller.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman is going to be an elite fantasy closer wherever he pitches, but a deal would significantly boost Miller's value. Do a quick check to see if Miller is available in your league.

Nationals | Nats among clubs eyeing Wade Davis

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:44:40 -0700

The Washington Nationals are one of several clubs that have expressed interest in Kansas City Royals RP Wade Davis. However, the club's asking price is reportedly greater than the New York Yankees are seeking in exchange for RP Aroldis Chapman.

Fantasy Tip: The Royals have not decided if they will be sellers at the trade deadline and pursuing Chapman is reportedly the Nats' top priority, so a deal between Washington and Kansas City appears unlikely. The 30-year-old right-hander is 1-0 with 21 saves and a 1.14 ERA through 33 appearances in 2016, with 12 walks and 30 strikeouts over 31 2/3 innings.

Nationals | Nats still pursuing Aroldis Chapman

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 17:32:06 -0700

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman is believed to be the Washington Nationals' primary target prior to the non-waiver trade deadline Aug. 1. However, the club does not appear willing to part with INF Trea Turner or SPs Lucas Giolito or Reynaldo Lopez in a potential deal, according to a baseball source. The Yankees are reportedly looking for players that can contribute immediately at the MLB level, although they have had scouts attending games for affiliates ranging from Class A Hagerstown to Class AAA Syracuse. OF Michael Taylor is believed to be available, according to the source, but the Yankees' level of interest in him is unknown.

Fantasy Tip: The 28-year-old Chapman is 3-0 with a 2.22 ERA and 19 saves in 29 appearances this season, with eight walks and 40 strikeouts in 28 1/3 innings and should be viewed as a high-end reliever regardless of the team he is playing for. However, his fantasy value should receive a slight boost if he is moved to a contender.

Indians | Cleveland set to pay for bullpen help?

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 10:57:51 -0700

New York Yankees RPs Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller are of significant interest to the Cleveland Indians, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman and Miller are both elite fantasy relievers. Miller isn't currently receiving looks in the ninth inning, though, so his value stands to skyrocket with a deal. Chapman would see a slight boost with a relocation to a contender. Both lefties should be universally owned and started.

Yankees | Aroldis Chapman touches 105 mph

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 09:11:35 -0700

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman threw a fastball at 105.0 mph to fall 0.1 mph shy of tying his own MLB record Monday, July 18, in a save over the Baltimore Orioles. Five of the 18 pitches he threw were clocked at 104 mph or higher. However, he failed to record a strikeout during the outing in the ninth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman now has 19 saves on the season and is fanning 12.7 hitters per nine innings, which is actually a career low. He hasn't allowed a run since June 27, though, so his fantasy owners aren't complaining. Chapman could be dealt by the trading deadline, but it seems likely he'd close for another team if he did.

Nationals | Aroldis Chapman a target of Nats

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 06:33:56 -0700

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman is the most likely target of the Washington Nationals, according to sources. Manager Dusty Baker is fond of him from their days with the Cincinnati Reds.

Fantasy Tip: That might be a bitter pill for closer Jonathan Papelbon, who has a 2.73 ERA and has nailed down 19 of 21 save chances, to swallow. A deal to the Nats could cause Chapman to shift to a setup role because of the risk involved with shaking up the back of a bullpen that drastically during the stretch run. In any event, Chapman would remain an elite reliever for ratios and K's without the save prowess.

Yankees | Aroldis Chapman, Carlos Beltran may go

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 13:51:14 -0700

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman and OF Carlos Beltran will be shopped if the Yankees don't improve in the coming days. Beltran has a limited no-trade clause, and both players are free agents at the end of the year.

Fantasy Tip: If Chapman is traded, there is a chance he could be placed in a setup role. However, it's hard to fathom a team relinquishing the assets to get him in that capacity. You'd have to think his value holds close to true if he's dealt, and he remains one of the top relievers in fantasy. Beltran could lose value, especially if he's dealt to a team in the National League because he can't play the outfield as frequently at his advanced age. Beltran is a guy you should look to sell high on in fantasy if possible.

Yankees | New York expected to sell at trade deadline

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 17:17:13 -0700

The New York Yankees are expected to be sellers at the trade deadline this month, and they will listen to offers for players like RPs Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman and OF Carlos Beltran.

Fantasy Tip: Basically nobody is off limits except for potentially some of their young prospects in the minors. Miller, who is already useful as a ratios stabilizer in all fantasy leagues, could see his value rise even more if he or Chapman is dealt. Beltran is having an All-Star season himself and is a must-start in all leagues.

Yankees | Aroldis Chapman earns Sunday save

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 22:59:58 -0700

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman collected his 16th save in 17 tries Sunday, July 3, in a 6-3 win over the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: It's a testament to Chapman's strength that he gets these saves despite the fact the Yankees don't have their usual good lineup. Chapman is a strong option in fantasy leagues that use closers.

Yankees | Rough outing for Aroldis Chapman

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 14:37:22 -0700

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman served up a back-to-back solo homers in the ninth inning against the Minnesota Twins on Saturday, June 18, but recovered just in time to preserve a 7-6 victory and notch his 13th save.

Fantasy Tip: The home runs by Eduardo Escobar and Kurt Suzuki are the first surrendered this season by Chapman, who hasn't been dominant self lately. He has allowed at least one run and two baserunners in four of his eight appearances this month while watching his ERA soar from 1.93 to 3.18 over that span. Chapman's job status isn't in question, so owners should feel free to ride this stretch out for now.
