How Dominant has Aroldis Chapman been this season for the Yankees
Yankees fans and baseball fans know that Aroldis Chapman has been one of the best relievers in baseball for quite some time now. Yes, he has had some trouble giving up homerun ball in recent playoff games, but Yankees fans know it was not Chapman’s fault we didn’t move on the last two seasons. That came down to lack of hitting with runners in scoring position.
So how could an already dominant closer who currently throws a 100 plus mph fastball with a filthy sinker get better?! The answer by adding an unhittable splitter to his arsenal. This has made him even more of a threat for hitters this season. Simply put, Aroldis Chapman is having a dominant year!
Envision it, the bottom of the 9th inning and you need 1 run to tie the game. Chapman throws two 100 plus mph fastball up high for strikes and the count is 0 and 2. Insert Chapman new splitter which looks like a strike then dips into the zone for a swing and miss. Anyone who has watched the Yankees this year has seen how filthy the splitter, sinker, and fastball combination has been for Chapman.
How I feel about Chapman
Overall I love what I have seen this season from Chapman. Ever since we traded for him I have enjoyed watching him play. How could you not like this guy? He has been nothing but dominant and consistent for the Yankees .
Thinking about the type of pitcher he has been for us, he seems to get better each year. When we traded him to the Cubs it was a homerun trade. He won his world series with them and we got Gleyber Torres from the Cubs who was key to the Yankees future successes. Even after that success and trade to the Cubs, Chapman still wanted to return to and play for the NY Yankees again.
It’s the year 2021 and Chapman has never been more dominant and unhittable than what we have seen from him to start the first two months of this season. Tune into a Yankee game and see this guy close out the game looking confident, in control, and sure of himself. He has been absolutely nasty!
Chapman’s stats are unreal this year and he is going to be the dominant force alongside Zac Britten, once he’s back, that will propel us to the World Series.
