A rival scout on Aroldis Chapman
“I hope they do start him, but they’re crazy if they do,” said the scout, who works for another National League club. “It’s Joba Chamberlain all over again.
“His velocity dropped off in the second inning. He couldn’t get his off-speed stuff over the plate consistently. No question in my mind, he’s the closer.”
Personally, I will admit that I am flat out shocked that on March 11th that a pitcher isn't throwing at top velocity and may have some struggles locating his offspeed stuff. SHOCKED.
