The Yankees traded closer Aroldis Chapman to the Cubs in exchange for former Yankees pitcher Adam Warren and three minor league prospects, the Yankee’s front office announced Monday afternoon. The deal comes ahead of the Aug. 1 non-waiver trade deadline.
Speculation and questioning raised when Yankees signed their former closer. Chapman was charged with assault during this past off-season and the team was under fire for accepting Chapman on the team after the domestic violence report was released.
Chapman had 3 wins and 30 saves for the Pinstripes, followed by only just one blown save for the season out of 31 games pitched. Chapman’s ERA is 2.01 for the season as he moves on to Chicago.
