U.S. media consider releasing Yankees after the collapse of original 100-mile finish Chapman
Is it the downfall of the original ‘100-mile (about 161km/h) closer?
U.S. media “CBS Sports” reported on the 26th (Korea Standard Time) that “The New York Yankees are considering releasing Aroldis Chapman.” CBS Sports quoted Joel Sherman, a reporter for the New York Post, as saying.
The media said, “The Yankees are at least considering releasing reliever Chapman. The Yankees are considering whether Chapman’s pitching mechanism can be modified by next week, and it boils down to questions about whether it can be included in the postseason roster,” he said. He also pointed out that Chapman will become a free agent (FA) at the end of this season.
Chapman is the closing pitcher for the Major League. “Bring it from hell” is a left-handed fireballer. Chapman, well known for his Cuban missiles, made his major league debut with the Cincinnati Reds in 2010. He started playing as a finishing pitcher in 2012 and made 30 saves for five consecutive years until 2016.
Major League Baseball’s Stacast also created a Chapman filter in the indicator of his speed in the phenomenal “100-mile” fastball. Since he has not consistently missed the top spot in the ball speed category for years, he boasted overwhelming ball speed enough to reveal the ball speed of pitchers except Chapman. Currently, many pitchers throw more than 100 miles, but in the past, Chapman alone shone.
Chapman signed a three-year, $48 million FA contract with the Yankees ahead of 2020. He will become an FA at the end of this season. However, it is ruining the season ahead of the FA. He is having difficulty in restraining and controlling In 2021, he recorded 6 wins, 4 losses, 1 hold, 30 saves, and a 3.36 ERA. This year, there were left Achilles tendon injuries and tattoo infection injuries. He is not a Yankees closer at the momentarily. He has a 4.36 ERA with 3 wins, 3 losses, and 9 saves this season 토토사이트
CBS Sports said, “Chapman is struggling. The average speed has dropped by more than a mile. I was on the injured list twice. Recently, I missed it for weeks due to tattoo infection. There has been no save since May 18. The Yankees started using Chapman in a comfortable situation. Clay Holmes, Jonathan Roissy, Scott Efros and Lou Trevino are using them as must-winners,” he said
