The New York Yankees swept the Minnesota Twins on Monday night, but took a hit in the process.

Aroldis Chapman was seen with his pitching hand wrapped up after the game.

Brian Cashman said he noticed the closer's hand when he fist-bumped the closer.

"He had a huge smile on his face, so I think that was a good sign,'" the GM said.

The Yankees will begin the ALCS on Saturday.

The New York Yankees have punched their ticket to the ALCS and may have another pitcher ready for the series.

CC Sabathia was left off New York's ALDS roster because of a nagging shoulder injury, but he's hoping to return against either the Houston Astros or Tampa Bay Rays.

"I feel pretty good. It's just up to them. So, we'll wait and see how I bounce back. I'll throw the bullpen and, like I said, go from there," Sabathia said.

The left-hander will throw a bullpen session on Wednesday. The ALCS won't begin until Saturday.
