Players union in awkward position in Aroldis Chapman case | Newsday

I can’t believe the MLBPA agreed to such an open-ended policy.

As one union official put it, this is all “uncharted territory,” and the framework the Players Association agreed to last August gives Manfred wide-ranging powers, with a variety of disciplinary action at his disposal. The policy’s language allows for no “minimum or maximum” penalty. Manfred also can put a player on paid administrative leave, such as removing him from spring training, before the suspension takes hold for the regular season.

Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman may face spring training ban - NY Daily News

A second source said that while a spring training ban is hardly a certainty, nothing could be ruled out since the new agreement leaves MLB and its players “in new territory” when it comes to discipline in domestic violence cases.

Assuming Chapman is disciplined by Manfred - as most in the game believe he will be - the possibilities include a ban from major-league camp, a ban from all team facilities including minor-league camp, or simply a suspension from regular-season games which would allow Chapman to remain with the team between now and Opening Day.

Chapman said Thursday he plans to appeal any suspension.

New guy in the ninth: Girardi names Aroldis Chapman closer

Of course, that formula won’t work every game. And even if it did, the top three relievers can’t pitch every night. So how does Girardi envision filling the rest of his bullpen?

Shown a graphic that listed five potential middle relievers—Bryan Mitchell, Chasen Shreve, Branden Pinder, James Pazos and Jacob Lindgren—Girardi expressed confidence in his long list of young arms, and specifically mentioned one name that didn’t fit the graphic.

“I think these kids got their feet wet, and I think they understand what it takes to be successful,” Girardi said. “I think Nick Rumbelow is in that picture as well. I thought he threw well.

Ken Rosenthal: New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman pulling out plenty of tricks in acquiring Aroldis Chapman, Starlin Castro for mid-level prospects | FOX Sports

They didn’t give up much. They can try and sign Chapman. If they can’t they will get a compensation pick. A nice deal for the Yankees.

Oh, the Yankees hated losing right-hander Rookie Davis, whom some scouts view as a potential a No. 3 starter. Former first-round pick Eric Jagielo, though, had no chance of passing first-base prospect Greg Bird, particularly when he has struggled to stay healthy. The other two players whom the Yankees sent to the Reds—second baseman Tony Renda and right-hander Caleb Cotham—were described as organizational filler.
