The Yankees have traded CL Aroldis Chapman to the Chicago Cubs in exchange for four players: pitcher Adam Warren, shortstop Gleyber Torres, and outfielders Rashad Crawford and Billy McKinney. Torres, Crawford, and McKinney are three young prospects that the Yankees hope to spearhead a rebuilding movement within the team.
Following a 30 game suspension last season due to a domestic violence dispute with his girlfriend, Chapman joins a hungry Chicago Cubs team that looks to make a push toward the World Series. With the highest strikeout rate per nine innings in baseball, Chapman will make an instant contribution to a Cubs team on the cusp of contention.
