Via MLBTR, from Jeff Passan (Yahoo! Sports) we learn that Aroldis Chapman has signed a 5-year, $30 million deal with an NL Central club. Passan speculates that the Reds, who have never really been linked to Chapman outside of today, might be the team, as Chapman is actually on a flight to Cincinnati as we speak (or at least he was).
If it was going to take $6 million per to sign Chapman, an unproven pitcher, I’m glad the Yankees passed.
UPDATE – The Reds have signed Chapman. Passan has confirmed the deal.
