Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman has pitching hand injured by bottle during celebration

USA Today

No team in baseball this year endured more on the injury front to its best players than the New York Yankees. 

Having swept the Minnesota Twins out of the ALDS on Monday, the Yankees engaged in a traditional postgame champagne celebration in the visitor's locker room. That's where the injury bug reared its head once more and came for one of the team's most important players this postseason. 

Closer Aroldis Chapman had recorded the final three outs of the series earlier, but reporters encountered him with a large bandage on his left hand — his pitching hand. Through an interpreter, he told the New York Post a bottle hit him during the locker-room jubilation.
