ESPN’s Buster Olney just provided an Aroldis Chapman update. Apparently, the Yankees are out. He gives no reason, but he says “concern in some quarters is that he is better suited for relief than as a starter.” That seems pretty vague, much like the talent evaluator who said A-Rod looked like an old man. I thought the Yankees might get in on Chapman to replace the departed Arodyz Vizcaino, but apparently the Yankees think he’s not worth the gamble, which according to Olney could get up around $20 million.
