No. 6 AROLDIS CHAPMAN, LHP REDS
Team: Triple-A Louisville (International)
Why He's Here: 0-0, 0.00, 4 2/3 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 9 SO
The Scoop: We knew he could throw hard. We knew he had as much upside as any lefthanded pitching prospect in the game. We knew he was a potential No. 1 starter in the future. What we didn't know was how good Chapman was right now, as he showed in his first minor league start by dominating Triple-A Toledo. Chapman hit triple digits with his fastball, but Reds' brass has to be just as impressed that he only walked one batter. He'll still have to refine his command, but it shouldn't be long before Chapman takes his prodigious arm to Cincinnati.
