Chapman to Cinci

Throughout the Aroldis Chapman speculation, there was always a sense that no one had a great feel for where the young lefty would end up. Turns out, the Reds were willing to pay absurd money.

Not exactly a team that ever seemed to be at the top of the list, but clearly the Reds’ scouts like what they’ve seen.

Some now speculate that Chapman might be more of a closer than a front-of-the-rotation starter. Whatever his fate, there is a great deal of risk in signing him. There’s risk in every prospect, but this one comes with huge money. It’s rare that an international player gets this much attention, and the attention won’t stop now that he’s signed.

One way or another, this is not the last we’ve heard of Chapman.
