12:00 p.m. Update
Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports the Yankees and Cubs have agreed to a deal.
WASHINGTON — Aroldis Chapman appears all but guaranteed to be traded in the coming week.
Where he goes remains to be seen, the current New York Yankees closer seems most likely to end up with the World Series favorite Chicago Cubs. This is potentially bad news for the Nationals, who have been rumored to covet the fire-throwing closer for years.
Here is the latest on the talks, per several national reporters.
Joel Sherman of the New York Post had a slew of updates Monday morning, including input on the Nationals’ role in the talks. He also lays out the Yankees’ plan of possibly trading their other closer, Andrew Miller, who was said to be off the market just a few days earlier.
Ken Rosenthal of MLB on Fox offers a few more details.
By most accounts, a deal for Chapman is expected to be completed at some point Monday. This post will be updated as more details become available.
