    Soto + Chapman = Cy Young

    His weakness right now is his change up. We have the best in the business to teach it to young Latin prospects. His weakness will soon be his strength.

    97 + change up + slider = KKKKKKKK

    My thoughts went to this same possibility. If he could throw a Soto-like circle change, a high-90's fastball, and just about any kind of left-handed slider, he will be incredibly fun to watch. Wow.

    I believe his main weakness right now is his control.

    Here is a nice scouting report on Chapman.

    A history of Chapman over the past year can be seen in this SOSH thread, (interesting pictures on page 4 of Chapman being taught about Boston nightlife and the pratfalls of being an athlete in the world of ubiquitous cameras- if you have seen the Arroyo photos you get the idea)

    I think his main weakness is the level of expectation currently being dropped on him. Let's enjoy watching this guy progress and grow. The future is lining up nicely, but we need to be patient.
