Cubs acquire Aroldis Chapman from Yankees in five-player deal


The Chicago Cubs are the best team in the MLB right now as they are sitting pretty with a league-best record of 59-38. They have one of the most-talented starting pitchers in Jake Arrieta and they have now snagged a great closer by adding Aroldis Chapman in a five-player deal with the New York Yankees.

It was reported by Jon Heyman of Today’s Knuckeball that the Cubs would pick up the closer by sending a handful of players to the Yankees. Those players are Single-A prospect Gleyber Torres, reliever Adam Warren and Double-A prospect Billy McKinney, while CSN’s Patrick Mooney reported Single-A prospect Rashad Crawford is the fourth man going to New York.

Aroldis Chapman spent the first six seasons of his career with the Cincinnati Reds before being traded to the Yankees in December of last year. He was suspended the first 30 games of the 2016 season after he was arrested for attacking his then-wife and violating the league’s personal conduct policy.

If 166 saves and a 2.16 ERA in five seasons wasn’t enough for the Cubs, here is one more impressive stat for Chapman.

Yeah, it is safe to say that the Cubs have just gotten a whole lot better.
