Aroldis Chapman will be a Yankee in 2020. Nearly an hour after the 12:01 opt-out deadline, Chapman announced on Instagram that he wasn’t opting out, and Jeff Passan broke the contact details on Twitter:

CBS Sports | Mike Axisa: The Yankees have been dipping into the college ranks in their search for a new pitching coach and reportedly interviewed Michigan University’s Chris Fetter and University of Arkansas’ Matt Hobbs. Jeff Passan called Fetter a “rising star in the industry,” and both would make for respectable choices.

NJ.com | Randy Miller: After peaking as the Yankees’ fourth-best prospect, Domingo Acevedo’s stock has only fallen. The six-foot-seven righty whose fastball touched 103 mph once had so much promise. Miller chronicled Acevedo’s fall from prospect grace.
