Yankees place Aroldis Chapman on 10-day DL

CHICAGO IL- MAY 05 New York Yankees relief pitcher Jonathan Holder prepares to pitch during a game between the New York Yankees and the Chicago Cubs

First, he blew a three-run, ninth-inning lead in his return to Wrigley Field on May 7 in a game the Yankees ended up beating the Cubs in 18 innings.

With the absence of Chapman, it appears Dellin Betances will close, Tyler Clippard will pitch the eighth, and Adam Warren will pitch the seventh. The Yankees plan to shut down Chapman for two weeks, then re-assess his injury, meaning he could be out longer, sources tell ESPN's Buster Olney.

"I love the organization, they welcomed me with open arms, and that's why I made a decision to go back", Chapman told ESPN during the offseason.

"No throwing for two weeks, so you're probably looking at a minimum of a month if everything goes right", general manager Brian Cashman said.

According to MLB's Statcast, Chapman's average fastball velocity has slightly dipped from 100.9 miles per hour previous year to 98.2 in 2017.

The Yankees recalled pitcher Chad Green from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre. Three more hits and another earned run set the tone, and once again he could not get out of the inning, only getting two outs.

But Chapman stayed in the game, and Girardi said afterward that his closer was not experiencing any pain or discomfort.

Though the closer does have seven saves to start the year, the Yankees won't be scrambling without him. Still, this isn't exactly what the Yankees were hoping to deal with when they brought Chapman back on five-year, $86 million contract last offseason.

"It's hard to say", Chapman said.

Betances had 12 saves past year and was awarded the Yankees' $3 million offer in salary arbitration rather than his $5 million request. He was 4-1 with a 1.55 ERA with 36 saves and 90 strikeouts during the regular season in 2016.
