Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman threw just six pitches before coming out of Tuesday’s game against the Marlins in the 12th inning.

Chapman walked Isaac Galloway on five pitches, then threw one more to Rafael Ortega before manager Aaron Boone came out to the mound to check on him.

He was then removed from the game and replaced by Tommy Kahnle.

Boone told reporters after the game Chapman left with a knee problem. He left an appearance in July with a knee injury as well. He is expected to have an MRI.

Chapman has a 2.11 ERA and 31 saves for New York this season.
