Aroldis Chapman
32-Year-Old PitcherRP
New York Yankees
2019 Fantasy Outlook
In his age-30 season, Chapman posted the fifth-lowest FIP among qualified relievers (2.09), but there are some yellow flags in the profile. First off, he lost more than a full tick off his fastball. He avoided any issues with the shoulder that cost him time in 2017, but Chapman dealt with a knee injury throughout most of the summer. While he was able to pitch through it for a stretch, Chapman eventually hit the DL and missed a month due to left knee tendinitis. His K-rate leaped a whopping 11 percentage points to 43.9% (his highest since 2014), but Chapman experienced a big uptick in walks. His 14.2% walk rate was the second-highest mark of his career. For close to a decade now, Chapman has succeeded in challenging hitters, but if his fastball continues to trend downward, he gets hit a little bit and has to nibble a little more, the results could suffer in a big way. Keep in mind that the Yankees have alternatives should Chapman struggle. Read Past Outlooks
