There are some big names who will stick around with him.

Looking to boost a flimsy offense, Phillies give Jorge Alfaro a shot at first

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 00:15:30 GMT

BOSTON -- Aroldis Chapman is out as the New York Yankees closer. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said before Saturday night's game with the Boston Red Sox that the hard throwing lefty, who gave up two runs in a non-save appearance in Friday's 9-6 loss to Boston, is being taken out of that role to work through some location issues. Chapman will be used "at any point" for now, Girardi said, though he stopped short of naming his replacement. Instead, Dellin Betances and David Robertson will be used based on the situation, to allow flexibility. Chapman has given up at least two runs in each of his last three outings. Girardi said an injury has been ruled out as a culprit for Chapman's recent issues,

Girardi no longer committing to Chapman as closer

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 00:32:40 GMT

Yankees manager Joe Girardi is no longer committing to LHP Aroldis Chapman as his primary closer after another rough outing on Friday night. Girardi said he will instead use Chapman "at any point" and said it will "not necessarily" be in save situations, reports Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. Girardi would not commit to any other single pitcher, but suggested he would use Dellin Betances and David Robertson, according to NJ.com. "If you look at the guys that are next, you could close with if you didn't close with Chapman, Robbie's got the most experience, Dellin's got some experience and he's been throwing the ball well," Girardi said. "I mean, I could look at a lot of different things."  Chapman entered

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 03:01:58 GMT

BOSTON -- Aroldis Chapman is out as the New York Yankees' closer.

Moreland delivers with pinch-hit single to help Red Sox beat Yankees, 9-6

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 03:45:15 GMT

BOSTON — The minutiae starts to fade now. Steal a few wins, rattle off a gorgeous run when people didn’t expect you to — what should or shouldn’t happen doesn’t matter. Are the Sox really this good? At a certain point, it’s irrelevant how many wins were lucky (Friday’s, arguably), or against bad teams (the White Sox), or anything else. Those victories are cinderblocks in the standings that the Yankees are will find increasingly difficult to budge. There’s simply no challenging the value of banked wins, no eliminating them. Look, you didn’t need Friday night’s 9-6 Red Sox win over the Yankees to realize the Sox are resilient. All of August has been a coming out party: for a pitching staff that’s
