Yankees activate closer Aroldis Chapman from 10-day DL

NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman has been activated from the disabled list.

New York announced the move Wednesday before the second game of a three-game series against the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox.

Chapman has been out since Aug. 21 with left knee tendinitis. The All-Star left-hander threw a simulated game Monday and said Tuesday that he had recovered well.

He will be available out of the bullpen Wednesday night. New York is trying to prevent Boston from clinching the division at Yankee Stadium for the second time in three years. The Red Sox can clinch with one victory.

The hard-throwing Chapman has 31 saves and a 2.11 ERA in 50 appearances this season.
