Chapman helps Yankees regain lost ground

New York Yankees 16-20

Aroldis Chapman had an immediate impact for the Yankees bullpen after returning from his suspension under Major League Baseball’s domestic violence policy. As a whole, New York looked like the team we saw early this season.

The Yankees offence was as productive and as dangerous looking as they were during the onset of the season. This offensive revelation helped the Yankees to close out games with strong performances from their relievers.

New York also had three stellar starts from their rotation. Long the source of the Yankees frustration, the productivity from their rotation was a step in the right direction as the Bronx Bombers started hitting again.

Their rotation is the key and got some help from the rest of the roster this week, but the Yankees will need to look a whole lot better than they have so far to get back into the divisional race..

Final Takeaway:

The Yankees looked like the team everyone thought they’d be at the beginning of the season, but they will need to be very productive to dig themselves out of the whole they fell into.
