Analysis: Chapman, who recorded only one out Saturday, had been perfect in his first two appearances with the Cubs while striking out four in 2 1/3 innings. He's no fan of entering in the eighth inning, saying through a translator, ''It's not my favorite thing to do, but that's my job and it's the manager's decision.'' He had blown only one of 21 save opportunities with the Yankees.
July 28 8:49 PM PT9:49 PM MT10:49 PM CT11:49 PM ET23:49 ET3:49 GMT11:49 8:49 PM MST10:49 PM EST11:19 PM VEN7:49 UAE (+1)10:49 PM CT-Chapman, in his second appearance since being acquired from the Yankees, struck out two and consistently hit 102 mph in his first save for his new team in Thursday's 3-1 win over the White Sox.

July 24 10:13 PM PT11:13 PM MT12:13 AM CT1:13 AM ET1:13 ET5:13 GMT13:13 10:13 PM MST12:13 AM EST12:43 AM VEN9:13 UAE12:13 AM CT-The Cubs have agreed to acquire Chapman from the Yankees in exchange for pitcher Adam Warren and three minor leaguers - shortstop Gleyber Torres and outfielders Billy McKinney and Rashad Crawford.
Analysis: Chicago paid a steep price for the flame-throwing closer, who's scheduled for free agency at season's end, as Torres and McKinney are considered two of the organization's best prospects. There's no doubt that Chapman can be a game-changer, though. Over the last five seasons, the 28-year-old has averaged an incredible 15.7 strikeouts per nine innings, held opposing hitters to a .156 average and recorded a 1.91 ERA and 165 saves.

Analysis: Chapman agreed to a 30-game suspension on March 1 under baseball's new domestic violence policy. New York's original schedule had him eligible to return May 9, but the Yankees' April 10 game at Detroit was postponed because of bad weather and has not yet been rescheduled.

Analysis: Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said Monday in Arizona that he has made ''additional progress'' toward decisions on two of the first three cases under investigation and expects an announcement in the next couple of days.

Feb. 18 11:39 AM PT12:39 PM MT1:39 PM CT2:39 PM ET14:39 ET19:39 GMT3:39 12:39 PM MST2:39 PM EST3:09 PM VEN23:39 UAE1:39 PM CT-Chapman says he would appeal if he is suspended by Major League Baseball under the sport's new domestic violence policy.
Analysis: Florida prosecutors decided not to file charges against Chapman, whose girlfriend told officers he pushed her, put his hands around her neck and choked her during an argument in October.

Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred said he hopes to have a decision by opening day.
