    Yankees' Aroldis Chapman will 'one million percent' opt out after season: report

    Will the Yankees be without their closer Aroldis Chapman in 2020? It's a scenario that is very plausible after hearing what The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal had to say about the flame-throwing left-hander.
    Rosenthal wrote in his most recent piece that "a player who is friendly" with Chapman said that the closer will "one million percent" opt out of his contract following the end of the 2019 season.
    Signing a five-year, $86 million with the Yankees back in 2017, Chapman had a player opt out clause put in following this season. If he does decide to use it, he would be forfeiting the remaining $34.4 million left on his contract (including his signing bonus) for the 2020 and 2021 seasons.


    Also, Chapman must keep in mind what happened with the reliever market this year. As Rosenthal points out, Craig Kimbrel is the perfect player to compare to Chapman. The righty, who was easily the most dominant closer in free agency, couldn't find a deal all offseason. Then, he finally signed a three-year, $43 million pact with the Cubs.

    That's $14.3 million per season for a closer at the same age as Chapman.

    So would he want to leave a team paying him more than that over the next two seasons as well as a championship contender to test the market? Rosenthal believes he could garner more than $30 million in free agency, but it will be a big decision for Chapman.

    Though the Bombers would love to keep Chapman in their bullpen for the next two seasons, they could make up for his loss. With arms like Adam Ottavino and Zack Britton-- two former closers -- and a hopefully healthy Dellin Betances, someone could step up to fill the void.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    Aroldis Chapman said that any talk that he has decided to opt out of his #Yankees contract is “completely false.” He said that he has not spoken to his agent about the topic, and will wait until after the season to do so.

    If we are on that boat, then change it to walk the plank. I am fine with him going.

    Chapman says he would like to remain with Yankees, doesn’t directly answer whether he’d opt out after the season. Brought up how his full no-trade protection ends after next season. He has limited no trade in 2020 and 2021. #Yankees

    Aroldis Chapman calls the report he wants to opt out of his Yankees contract after this year “completely false.” Adds: “the truth is, honestly, I feel great here.”

    He did also add that he was aware that after next season the Yankees have an ability to change his contract. But reiterated he wants to stay in New York.

    As recent history has shown, nobody will sign him and give up the draft pick.

    Fake news here.

    If he opts out, can the yanks tag him?

    I just don’t see him leaving money on the table like that.

    That is why I believe we are stuck with him... He is not horrible he is just not the old Chapman anymore....He is starting to pitch to contact now with all of his breaking balls...

    I’m curious to see his swing and miss rate compared to what he was in year one of this contract....But that was the going rate at the time...Boston is hurting with their closer situation and I’m happy we have him for now...
