  • Aroldis Chapman Earns One-Out Save Monday

    Headshot for Aroldis Chapman

    Pittsburgh Pirates relief pitcher Aroldis Chapman earned his first save of the season in Monday's 8-4 win over the Nationals. The 36-year-old entered the game in the bottom of the ninth inning up by four with two outs and runners on first and second and ended things with a fly-out. This was not a typical save situation, which may explain why Chapman was called upon instead of David Bednar. Chapman has looked solid this season, pitching 2 1/3 scoreless innings with three strikeouts. He may get some save opportunities throughout the season but is likely only going to be a source of strong ratios for now.

  • Offseason In Review: Pittsburgh Pirates

    Headshot for Chase Anderson

    The Pirates’ ongoing rebuild showed some encouraging signs last year but it didn’t prompt the front office to go out and win the offseason. They made some modest additions as their focus remains clearly on the future, but did sign another core member of their club to a sizable extension. Major League Signings LHP Aroldis…

  • David Bednar "Optimistic" He'll Be Ready For Opening Day

    Headshot for David Bednar

    Pittsburgh Pirates closer David Bednar (lat) threw live batting practice on Monday and said that his next step is likely to appear in games. "I'm staying day-by-day as much as I possibly can," Bednar said. "But each day has been feeling good. I'm optimistic." Bednar has yet to appear in a Grapefruit League game this spring due to right-lat soreness, but he's optimistic that he'll be ready by Opening Day next Thursday on March 28. When healthy, he's a top-10 fantasy closer, as he's been one of the best relievers in the game the last two years. He was 3-3 with a career-best 2.00 ERA with a league-high 39 saves and 80 strikeouts in 67 1/3 innings in 2023. The Pirates could be conservative with Bednar early on, perhaps not using him on back-to-back days, instead using lefty veteran Aroldis Chapman in those spots.

  • Pirates To Sign Aroldis Chapman

    Headshot for Aroldis Chapman

    The Pirates are in agreement with Aroldis Chapman, as first reported by Francys Romero (X link). It’s a one-year, $10.5MM guarantee, reports Joel Sherman of the New York Post (on X). Chapman is a Wasserman client. The deal is pending a physical; Pittsburgh will need to make a corresponding 40-man roster move once the contract…

  • Aroldis Chapman Agrees With Pirates

    Headshot for David Bednar

    Free-agent Cuban left-hander Aroldis Chapman agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday, according to sources. Chapman started last year with the Kansas City Royals before joining the eventual World Series-champion Texas Rangers. In 61 total relief appearances, the seven-time All-Star reliever had a 3.09 ERA (2.52 FIP), 1.25 WHIP, six saves, 36 walks and 103 strikeouts in 58 1/3 innings. He's now been with four different teams in the last three seasons and is no longer a shutdown closer in the ninth inning. However, Chapman does have 321 career saves and should serve as a late-inning setup man in Pittsburgh in 2024 in front of closer David Bednar, giving him fantasy value for strikeouts and holds. The hard-throwing southpaw reached 100 strikeouts in 2023 for the fifth time in his career.

  • Mets Interested In Aroldis Chapman, Hector Neris

    Headshot for Aroldis Chapman

    The New York Mets have expressed interest in free-agent relievers Aroldis Chapman and Hector Neris this offseason, according to league sources. Neris might be a better fit for the New York Yankees, but his asking price of one or two years at $7-11 million per year would fit the Mets' budget. The Mets have also spoken to left-hander Wandy Peralta as they look to upgrade their bullpen. Chapman seems more likely to find a better fit elsewhere, and Adam Ottavino, who declined a $6.75 million option for 2024, is a possibility to return to the Mets on a new deal. Edwin Diaz, who missed all of 2023 due to a knee injury, is returning as the club's primary closer this year, so any relief pitcher that the Mets sign between now and the start of the regular season will operate in more of a late-inning setup role out of the bullpen.
