New York Yankees Sign Aroldis Chapman To Five Year, $86M Deal
The New York Yankees didn’t waste any time getting back closer Aroldis Chapman to a five-year, $86 million contract. The deal also includes a no-trade clause for three years, can’t be sent to any California teams.
The amount of work Chapman went through in the World Series didn’t stop the Yankees from signing him. General manager Brian Cashman wants to improve this team’s bullpen no matter what. He knows how good the Boston Red Sox are, and the other teams in the American League. They overpaid a player who’s probably not gonna be the same like season. But it’s better than having Dellin Betances as the closer. He’s more suited as a relief pitcher, and now the Yankees hope their young players develop into stars.
