Aroldis Chapman and his 105-mph heater will be called up to the big leagues before tonight’s titanic struggle:
Chapman, 22, a Cuban left-hander, has been dominant, overpowering, nasty, filthy or whatever adjective you want to insert for his Louisville performance recently. He is 4-1 with a 2.40 earned run average as a reliever. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s allowed 17 hits, 12 walks and struck out 49 in 30 innings, since the move to bullpen. His ERA is 0.83 over his last 20 appearances.
In his last eight outings, heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s gone eight innings and allowed two hits and three walks while striking out 15.
How excited are you? Further, how excited are you about this season, in general?
