The New York Yankees are considering designating reliever Aroldis Chapman for assignment, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

Regardless, New York reportedly doesn't have any plans to bring back the seven-time All-Star when he becomes a free agent after the 2022 season.

The struggling left-hander has posted career-worst numbers across the board, including a 4.36 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 10.4 K/9. The 34-year-old lost his closing job and has dealt with multiple injuries.

Chapman owns a 2.91 ERA, 448 strikeouts, and 153 saves over 311 appearances since joining the Yankees before the 2016 campaign. He was traded to the Chicago Cubs that season and helped the team win a World Series before rejoining New York in free agency.
