Nationals | Nats discussing Aroldis Chapman

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 16:15:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman has been the subject of trade talks between the Reds and Washington Nationals, according to sources. However, no deal is imminent.

Fantasy Tip: This would be a very intriguing move for the Nats, since they are already set with closer Drew Storen. However, the Nationals covet a late-inning left-handed reliever, and one would have to believe that Chapman would become their closer, bumping Storen to more of a setup role. Stay tuned.

Reds | Aroldis Chapman in rough patch

Tue, 12 May 2015 05:46:11 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman has allowed three hits in back-to-back outings after he didn't allow more than two hits in any of his 54 appearances in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman has suffered two losses in a row, but let's be real here. He allowed his only two earned runs of the season in his last two outings. He's still by far the most dominant reliever in the game. These were two very minor hiccups that took his ERA from 0.00 to 1.26.
