Aroldis Chapman has decided to do it, and it is possible that the Yankees will have one too.
It was granted that, if the All-Star opted more closely from the last two years of its contract at the end of this season, the general manager Brian Cashman and Co. would do so. also decided.
Do they want big money to give your 32-year-old relief with plenty of tread on his rocket of left hand? And what other options will Chapman have? Perhaps the Red Sox and the Nationals is it. But it is unlikely that most of the big market competitors who would have wanted the Chapman dollars will necessarily need to have, since the amp, Astros and Cubs set up everyone involved in green cleaning.
Chapman described the report, saying that he had not even considered his contract, and what would happen when the year ended. Six tweets: Don't always believe what you hear in the media. Yankee 100%. ”But he would not commit not to reject, leaving the possibility of leaving open on the open market. Other complex things the Yankees can offer a qualifying offer. If Chapman refuses that offer, a top-picked team would refuse to sign it.
“Sometime, when the season is around, I'll sit down and talk to my agent about it,” the All-Star told six years from Cuba through a translator before the game Yankees with rays of rain on Wednesday Night . “But the truth is very good, honestly, here. I have no reason to start thinking about any changes or anything like that. I feel great here. ”
This was a debate on Wednesday, following a report in The Athletic mentioned by an anonymous player close to Chapman saying that Opportunity “1 million per cent” it would go out of the five-year agreement, $ 86 million he signed with the Yankees in 2017. He has two years and $ 34.4 million left on the deal.

“The report is completely false. I haven't even talked to my agent about it, ”Chapman said. “We have a big task ahead of us, to win the division, to win the World Series. That is the main focus for me now. Contract objects never crossed my mind even. ”
When asked how he feels about his current deal, Chapman said: “Of course I am happy. I am happy with my contract, I am happy with the years I have been here. I am happy."
Since his arrival from the Reds in trade in December 2015, Chapman was a valuable asset, the first verifiable cleaner of Torres Gleyber in trade with the Cubs at the 2016 trading deadline, and the last three years operating as the lining with elite Yankees plagued. With 25 savings already this year, he has been able to take up a career, and he has gone to the ERA 2.45 with 53 beaters being reached and allowing 29 hits in 36 ² / ₃ innings.
“God is willing to stay here, certainly. But at the same time, from what I understand, after the next year, my contract changes slightly and the Yankees have the potential to trade. It is one of those things that do not have much of my control over me, ”Chapman said, and it seems to confirm that his defense goes without trading completely until it is limited after this season. “But God is willing to finish (my life) here.” T
