“We would like to sign him, he is an original Blue Jay and we have
never had a pitcher as good as him. But he is
not inclined to sign with us.”
– Blue Jays president and CEO Paul Beeston, while talking about the future of Roy Halladay with the New York Post.

Yesterday the New York Yankees got Aaron Judge back. Today they activated closer Aroldis Chapman.
Chapman has been on the disabled list since August 22 with left knee tendinitis. Before going down the 30-year-old fireballer registered a 2.11 ERA and 31 saves with an 84/27 K/BB ratio in 47 innings of work.
In his absence David Robertson, Dellin Betances and Zach Britton have all been bumped an inning back to decidedly mixed results. Now Chapman is back in the mix.
