Chapman will be back in the closer role for Yankees Saturday

ARLINGTON, Texas – Aroldis Chapman will have a chance to lock down the closer role again, and will close for the Yankees Saturday if the situation arises.

Joe Girardi said he’d like to have one closer down the stretch but added that having three arms like Chapman, Dellin Betances and David Robertson certainly doesn’t hurt.

Chapman had been demoted as closer in mid-August but has pitched better recently.

Chapman and Betances have combined for seven blown saves in 33 chances.
