No ignoring Chapman's struggles

Aroldis Chapman is out as the Yankees' closer, and with good reason. The left-hander is in the midst of his worst season by numerous measures.

Sabathia continues Red Sox domination

With Saturday's win, CC Sabathia is now 3-0 with a 0.90 ERA in three starts against Boston this season. Since earned runs became official in the AL in 1913, four other Yankees pitchers have won their first three starts against the Red Sox in a season with a sub-1.00 ERA: Lefty Gomez in 1934 (0.33), Hank Borowy in 1945 (0.35), Whitey Ford in 1956 (0.67) and Scott Sanderson in 1991 (0.43), the Elias Sports Bureau notes.

Saturday's longest home runs

Rougned Odor teed off twice against the White Sox, with his second blast reaching the upper deck in right field at Globe Life Park. A pair of rookies flexed their muscles in Saturday's Red Sox-Yankees tilt while Mike Trout's multihomer game in Baltimore gave him six seasons with at least 25 home runs, tying Tim Salmon's Angels record.

Joc Pederson's playing time seems most logically in jeopardy following Curtis Granderson's acquisition by the Dodgers, as Pederson was struggling mightily, batting .156/.253/.312 in 28 games since the All-Star break. Pederson wasn't widely owned in ESPN leagues (16.9 percent), but I've often reminded how at-bats are precious in "only" leagues. NL-only owners could consider Brandon Nimmo, who should see a corresponding rise in playing time. Nimmo's year has been disappointing but it makes a lot of sense for the Mets to play him somewhat regularly to see what they've got for 2018.
