This is definitely going to be a gamble. The best closer on the market in the off-season did not sign until June.
Despite that, Chapman told The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal they he is ‘1 million percent’ going to be a free agent.
Chapman is willing to walk away from the final two years of his contract. In addition, he is also walking away from $30 million that he will leave on the table.
He previously signed a five-year, $86 million deal with the Yankees on December 15, 2016.
Chapman is currently tied in the American League with 25 saves.
This season, he is 2-2 in 39 games with 34 games finished and the aforementioned 25 saves. He has a 2.45 ERA with 13 runs allowed (10 earned runs), including two home runs, on 29 hits over 36 2/3 innings.
Chapman also has 53 strikeouts on the season thus far. He also has 12 walks.
