Royals agree to deal with closer Aroldis Chapman

The Royals have agreed to a one-year deal with hard-throwing reliever Aroldis Chapman, a source told’s Mark Feinsand on Thursday. The club has not confirmed the deal, which is expected to be worth $3.75 million plus performance bonuses. Kansas City will be banking on a turnaround from Chapman, who was known for his consistent triple-digit velocity earlier in his career.

The 2022 season was a miserable one for the seven-time All-Star. It saw Chapman record some of the worst stats of his 13-year career and was blemished by multiple injured-list stints as well as questions regarding his willingness to be a team player.

Aroldis Chapman off Yankees’ ALDS roster after blowing off workout

Aroldis Chapman’s unpredictability on the mound already had his playoff chances in jeopardy, but he made sure he wouldn’t be on the ALDS roster when he blew off a team workout on Friday.

The Yankees’ veteran left-handed reliever was supposed to throw live batting practice on Friday in the Bronx but missed it with “not an acceptable excuse,” manager Aaron Boone said Sunday.

GM Brian Cashman said he fined Chapman, who posted a 4.46 ERA during the regular season and was no guarantee to make the playoff roster even if he showed up to Friday’s workout.

“There’s some questions about whether he’s been all in or not for a little while,” Cashman said.

Chapman is currently in Miami after the Yankees asked him to stay away from the team for now.
