Newsday | Erik Boland: The Yankees lost a crucial bullpen piece when Tommy Kahnle went down and needed Tommy John surgery, but they should be getting another pivotal piece back any day now. Aroldis Chapman recently faced live hitters at the team’s alternate site, and according to pitching coach Matt Blake, Chapman is very close to making his 2020 debut, and will slide into the closer’s role when that happens.

Chad Green has been the Yankees’ best pitcher

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports The flamethrowing right-hander is, as of Wednesday afternoon, the team leader in pitching WAR. Media, fans, and the baseball community in general love to talk about the New York Yankees’ potent bullpen, and with good reason.

Yankees send Tommy Kahnle for MRI

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports The right-hander reportedly has forearm tightness.
