Cincinnati Reds Ink Aroldis Chapman
The Reds won the Aroldis Chapman Sweepstakes by signing the Cuban defector to a six-year deal. The prized lefty prospect has a fastball that tops out in the 100s.
He will start the season in the Minors where he can work on his control and harness that fastball. Kudos to the Reds for beating the big boys to land Chapman. Unfortunately this is the type of gamble that small market teams need to make in order to compete.
