Yan­kees get Chap­man back

Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL -

Closer Aroldis Chap­man was ac­ti­vated from the dis­abled list Sun­day by the New York Yan­kees and worked a per­fect eighth in­ning in the club’s 4-3 loss at Oakland.

The left-han­der had been out since May 13 be­cause of in­flam­ma­tion in the ro­ta­tor cuff.

“Once I got out there, ev­ery­thing felt good and felt nor­mal,” said Chap­man, who had con­cerns about be­ing rusty.
