When Can Yankee Fans Expect Aroldis Chapman Back?
YES Network broadcaster, Nancy Newman joined Alex Feuz to discuss the first week of the unprecedented 2020 MLB season.
The Yankees were the bystanders in the COVID-19 outbreak that has dramatically affected the seasons of the Miami Marlins and Philadelphia Phillies. All four scheduled games against the Phillies this week were postponed to a later date.
"Teams have experienced that you have to be willing to change on the fly. Things are changing by the days, hours, and even minutes at times."
Aroldis Chapman tested positive with COVID-19 before the season got underway, and has yet to make his return to the Yankees bullpen. Nancy Newman gave insight on when we could potentially see Chapman back.
"We haven't heard much from Chapman since the season began, but there is hope that he is able to come back soon. He is not listed on the COVID IL, but still has to test negative twice before making his return."
