He was activated yesterday from the disabled list
The New York Yankees have as of this Friday their closer, Cuban pitcher Aroldis Chapman, who was activated from the disabled list.
Chapman was removed from the team on May 22 after suffering an Achilles tendon injury in his left foot.
The star left-hander made three appearances in the minor league, the last one last Tuesday with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre team, in the Triple-A branch of the Yankees.
The incorporation of Chapman strengthens the relief of the New York team, which this Friday began its weekend series against the Cleveland Guardians.
Chapman has pitched in 17 games so far this season, going 0-2 with a 3.86 earned run percentage. In 14 innings of work, the left-hander has struck out 15 batters.
The Cuban has been a safe bet at the time of finishing the games for his team, since he has completed the nine save opportunities in which he has climbed to the mound.
