Yankees Place Chapman (shoulder) On DL – The New York Yankees have placed closer Aroldis Chapman on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to Saturday, with left shoulder rotator cuff inflammation. In the short term, Dellin Betances will replace Chapman as the team’s closer, but the bigger issue that cannot be fully answered immediately is the severity of the injury. The Yankees signed the 29-year-old Chapman to a five-year, $85 million contract this offseason, even as Yankees GM Brian Cashman acknowledged the volatility of relievers over the long term.
