Aroldis Chapman isn’t just keeping the door ajar about returning to the Bronx — he’s throwing it wide open.
“The organization treated me first class. And the fans were like no other,” he told the website.
Chapman won a World Series with the Cubs, who got him from the Yankees in exchange for top prospect Gleyber Torres, who was named MVP of the Arizona Fall League last weekend. He and ex-Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen are the two best free agent relief pitchers on the market this winter. That means he’ll command big bucks, which runs counter to the Yankees preference to trim the payroll.
“This is business and the Yankees know that,” Chapman told NY Sports Day, hinting that financial constraints that could stand in the way of a reunion.
Chapman, 28, also said that he “will always be grateful” for the Yankees support during his domestic violence issues last year.
