Chapman had his left knee wrapped and was walking gingerly following Friday's victory over the Mets, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chapman was examined in the ninth inning after he was seen limping, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports, but he was able to remain in the game. It's unclear if he'll be forced to miss any time, but he'll be listed as day-to-day until more information on his status is released.

Chapman (2-0) pitched a scoreless 10th inning Tuesday against the Astros en route to his second win of the season.

EDGE Analysis

Brett Gardner hit a game-tying two-run home run off of Chris Devenski in the ninth inning to send the game to extras. Chapman then pitched a scoreless inning with a walk and a strikeout before Gleyber Torres laced a walk-off single to end things. Chapman has not allowed a run in his last seven relief appearances and currently owns a shiny 1.21 ERA.

Chapman tossed one scoreless inning and walked one while striking out two Sunday as he picked up save No. 11 against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Chapman has converted on his last four save opportunities, and he sits with an outstanding 1.27 ERA and 0.89 WHIP with 39 strikeouts in 21.1 innings. Chapman certainly isn't in any danger of losing his current role as the closer and should continue to rack up the strikeouts with his stellar fastball.

Chapman recorded the final four outs of Friday's game against the Angels for his 10th save of the season. He struck out one batter.

EDGE Analysis

This was Chapman's first save of more than three outs this season. He hasn't pitched much lately -- this was just his second appearance since May 12 -- but that's just because the Yankees haven't had many close leads to protect in recent weeks.

Chapman tossed one scoreless inning Saturday against the Athletics, walking three and striking out one.

EDGE Analysis

Chapman was brought in to preserve a tie game in the top of the ninth inning and just barely managed to keep the game tied. He began by walking the bases loaded before striking out Mark Canha. He then got out of the jam with some help from left fielder Brett Gardner, who caught a fly ball and just barely threw out Matt Olson tagging up to score. Chapman now has 35 strikeouts and eight walks in 18 innings, ratios right in line with the numbers he's posted throughout his career.

Chapman struck out the side against Houston on Thursday to earn his seventh save of the season.

EDGE Analysis

After George Springer reached on a two-out single to left, Chapman quickly rebounded and retired Jose Altuve to nail down the win for New York. Chapman's average fastball velocity has been down a couple ticks early on, but it hasn't mattered, as Chapman is striking out batters at would be the second-base rate of his career and he's a perfect 7-for-7 in save chances. With Kenley Jansen struggling, Chapman is looking like perhaps the top closer option in fantasy baseball.

Chapman struck out the side to record his third save of the season Thursday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Chapman needed only 12 pitches to set the Blue Jays down in order to secure the win for the Yankees. He has been dominant through eight innings this season, striking out 17 batters while allowing only six baserunners. He's been an elite source of saves and should remain so.

Chapman tossed a scoreless top of the ninth Sunday in the Yankees' eventual 8-7 loss to the Orioles in 12 innings.

EDGE Analysis

Chapman pumped in 11 of his 14 pitches for strikes and retired the side easily with a strikeout and a pair of groundouts.
