Aroldis Chapman likely out a month with shoulder issue

15 May 2017

The Yankees placed Aroldis Chapman on the 10-day disabled list on Sunday with shoulder inflammation, with general manager Brian Cashman expecting the flamethrower to be out around a month.

The Yankees also recalled right-hander Chad Green from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre prior to Sunday's doubleheader.

Chapman had a MRI on Saturday, a day after getting just two outs and giving up a run in the ninth inning of a 5-1 loss to Houston.

ESPN reported that Chapman will be reassessed after two weeks, which means that he could be out longer. A week ago, he squandered a three-run lead in the ninth inning against the Chicago Cubs in a game the Yankees eventually won after 18 innings.

Chapman, 29, has seven saves with a 3.55 ERA in 12 2/3 innings and 21 strikeouts in 14 appearances. During that loss, he was seen shaking his arm and the team decided to make the move, which is retroactive to May 13. He allowed his first run of the season that night and grabbed his elbow after it was over. Chapman initially remained in the game, then was removed after Jose Altuve's single.

The hard-throwing lefty helped the Cubs win the World Series previous year for the first time since 1908.

Betances had 12 saves past year and was awarded the Yankees' $3 million offer in salary arbitration rather than his $5 million request.

The Cubs made a decision to not re-sign Chapman and went a different route by trading Jorge Soler for closer Wade Davis during the offseason.
