Rarity in Aroldis Chapman's contract

Chapman is only the second free-agent reliever since 1990 to get a five-year deal, ESPN Stats & Info notes. The other was B.J. Ryan, who signed a five-year, $47 million pact with the Blue Jays in Nov. 2005. Ryan made it through only 3 1/2 years of his deal before he was released.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman has been pessimistic about adding another starter. It seems possible he could add another bullpen piece.

Dave Dombrowski didn't exactly call the Yankees "the Golden State Warriors" after the Aroldis Chapman signing, but the Red Sox honcho did say this: "I wish that somebody else would have made him a better offer so he would have gone somewhere else, for sure. No question."

The Mets lost no prospects in the major league phase of the Rule 5 draft. That means Eastern League batting champ Phillip Evans remains with the organization. The Mets' 40-man roster was full and they were unable to make any selections.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

With Dellin Betances headed back to a setup role, to give a sense what an elite, non-closer reliever is worth in fantasy, the past eight relievers with 100-plus strikeouts, a sub-2.50 ERA and single-digit saves finished as RPs 20, 40, 13 (Betances, 2014), 16, 40, 41, 18 (Betances, 2015) and 25 on the Player Rater. Though they're difficult to identify in advance, these are immensely undervalued assets in fantasy year after year.
