According to an article on CBSSPORTS.com and Joel Sherman Yankees are considereing DFAing Chapman.  Since he seems to have no roile and only goes one inning if he does pitch so his value in blowouts is limited they may prefer to use his roster spot for someone else in the bullpen since he  will be a FA anyway and they do not expect to bring him back.

might as well, at this point the money is moot and can't imagine him on the PS roster. pretty sure he's a proud man so it must be difficult.

I think he's a FA at the end of this season, they really aren't losing much money, he's owed it anyway... This is most likely be a numbers casualty anyway... The need a roster spot for the post season, so he's the one that will be DFA'd..

I think MLB players accrue 1/172 of their salary each day of the 172 day season.  Chapman is making $16 M this year and there are 10 days left so I think Yanks would owe him 10/172 of $16 M or a bit under $1 M if they released him today.  But Hal being frugal will probably wait until after the regular season.

If I'm reading this right and doing the math right Chapman could make $1 mil a game sitting in the bullpen in between appearance? Not bad if you can get the gig.

Chapman makes $93,023.25 every day whether or not he pitches.  You are right, it's a great gig if you can get it.  So far this year he has made 39 appearances, 33 IP (so a bunch of games where he got pulled before even completing a full inning) or a bit over $400K every time they used him.


Players get their full salary over the course of the regular season.  The money they get for winning (and losing) each round of the post season is above and beyond their contract salary.;

I know he hasn't been good but this still surprises me a bit. He still throws hard although his command has been bad. I didn't expect him to be back next year but we don't have a lot of late inning RPs who are lights out right now. The 3 batter rules probably contributes to this potential move as well. With or without Chapman, the back end of our pen scares me.

Well you know Hal is cheap... he's trying to cut some corners.

If any of DJ, Benny or Carpenter come back. they are going to have to create roster spots. The last time I looked, particularly with Miggy gone, there aren't alot of easy choices. If they don't trust Chappy enough to be on the playoff roster and he won't be back next season then I guess it's a pretty easy decision.
