New York Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman had a little bit of a sense of humor during Spring Training this week.
A fan got Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman to sign a fake Astros garbage can. The cardboard bin had an logo with "Houston Trashtros" written on it. Twitter user Pat Claeys shared a photo of Chapman signing a picture of a trash can, a reference to the Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal.
If you want a refresher, Chapman has that connection to the Astros after recently losing to them in the 2019 American League Championship Series. Jose Altuve blasted a home run in a series clinching walk-off home run to send the Astros to the World Series once again against the Washington Nationals.
After the investigation concluded, Chapman talked to Buster Olney about that game winning HR & if he was suspicious of anything after the fact.
"I've seen that video a lot of people have seen that video; it's a popular video right now," he said last month to Buster Olney. "And yeah, if you look at his actions, they look a little suspicious. At the end of the day, I just don't know."
The Major League Baseball regular season is set to kick off in a couple weeks. The Astros will take on the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the season opener.
