Chapman battled through the rain to pick up his 30th save of the season Saturday against the Rangers. He allowed a hit and a walk and hit a batter while striking out a pair in a scoreless inning.

EDGE Analysis

Chapman allowed the tying run to reach second base but got out of the jam by striking out Jurickson Profar to end the game. His save total sits third in the AL. He'll need eight more to tie his career high. Meanwhile, his 16.2 K/9 is well above the 12.3 K/9 he posted last season and represents his highest rate since 2014.

Chapman slammed the door Sunday against the Royals, as he tossed a perfect inning while striking out the side in order.

EDGE Analysis

Chapman has put together two scoreless outings following a nightmare appeanance July 21 against the Mets, when he surrendered three runs on a hit and three walks and failed to record an out. Although the 30-year-old lefty struggles with his command at times, he owns a solid 1.93 ERA with 73 strikeouts through 42 innings.

Chapman allowed three runs on three walks, a hit by pitch and a hit without getting a single out Saturday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Chapman entered a clean top of the ninth and nearly blew the game. 16 of his 19 pitches were balls, including each of his last 11. He was bailed out by Chasen Shreve, who got two straight groundouts (including a double play) to save the game. Chapman has never been known as anything close to a master of control, but Saturday's outing was uncharacteristically poor. For now, it can probably be treated as a fluke and perhaps chalked up to the fact that he hadn't pitched in a week, but another similarly ugly outing would be cause for concern.

Chapman (knee) will likely be used if a save situation arises Monday in Baltimore, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

His knee tendinitis is still present, and the plan is for him to attempt to continue to play through the issue for the rest of the season, possibly getting some maintenance days in when possible. Fantasy owners will have to deploy Chapman, given this intel, knowing that he may not get 100 percent of the save chances the rest of the way. David Robertson has emerged as the favorite to close games when Chapman needs a day off.

Chapman (knee) wasn't used in relief during Sunday's 2-1 win over the Blue Jays in 10 innings.

EDGE Analysis

According to Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said prior to the contest that Chapman "might be available," but it was David Robertson who ended up getting the call for the save situation. It may just have been a case where Boone viewed Chapman more as a last-resort option, with the Yankees instead preferring the closer get another day off to recover from the left knee tendinitis that flared up Saturday. Since the issue isn't viewed as a major concern, Chapman's fantasy owners will still probably want to keep him active heading into the new week.

Contrary to previous reports, the injury that forced Chapman to leave Saturday's game against the Blue Jays had nothing to do with his arm but was instead a flare-up of the left knee tendinitis he has been battling in recent weeks, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

It remains a concern that Chapman had to leave the game, but the situation doesn't appear nearly as dire as it could have if he were dealing with an arm injury. It sounds as though Chapman could have remained in the game, but manager Aaron Boone decided it wasn't worth leaving him in with the Yankees leading by four. It's not yet clear whether Chapman will need time on the disabled list or just a day or two to rest his knee.
