Yankees Trade Closer Aroldis Chapman to the Cubs

July 25th, 2016

The New York Yankees have traded Aroldis Chapman to the Chicago Cubs in exchange for four players, including top prospect Gleyber Torres. It's a move many saw coming, and it potentially shakes up the NL playoff race. 

Chapman, 28, has posted a 2.01 ERA with a 0.89 WHIP and nearly 13 strikeouts per nine innings on the season. His presence now means that Hector Rondon will be moved to a setup role. That's huge news for Cubs' starters from a fantasy perspective. We'll hit on this aspect of the trade a bit later today.
