Aroldis Chapman dismisses knee concerns after rough outing

Aroldis Chapman Yankees

Aroldis Chapman dismissed concerns about his knee after a rough outing on Saturday.

Chapman entered the New York Yankees’ game against the New York Mets looking to close things out with a 7-3 lead. Unfortunately he failed to record an out as he put on five straight, walking three, hitting a batter and allowing a hit. He was charged with three runs in the appearance.

After the game, Chapman was asked whether his knee had anything to do with his issues Saturday. Both Chapman and manager Aaron Boone dismissed those concerns.

Chapman has dealt with knee tendinitis all year, though it mostly has not appeared to affect him. Prior to Saturday, he was 3-0 with 26 saves, a 1.35 ERA and 68 strikeouts in 40 innings.
