Aroldis Chapman: the savior, the next best thing, or the next Randy Johnson. All things might be true, but it has to start somewhere.
The Reds' prized new acquisition threw a bullpen session for about two hours on Thursday, and to people who witnessed it, said that he threw well and felt well after.
Chapman, who was just recently signed a six year contract worth over $30 million, has been speculated to be one of the best new pitchers in the game, and the Reds are hoping they hit a jackpot.
Yes, we all know that his fastball can hit upwards of 101-102 MPH, but until spring training games begin, we can only wait to see his true talent evolve.
Chapman, regarded as one of the top prospects in baseball, seems excited to get things going in Arizona, because as of now, the Reds pitching game is surviving on nothing more than a wing and a prayer. Let's hope Chapman can answer that prayer.
