Astros coming on late as frontrunner to land Chapman?

BY foxsports • July 31, 2015

The Cincinnati Reds have already traded their top starter Johnny Cueto and fireballing closer Aroldis Chapman could be next.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal has reported a 50-50 chance that Chapman will be pitching for a new team by Saturday. The Houston Astros, the surprise AL West leaders and active trade participants already with the acquisition of Milwaukee's star outfielder Carlos Gomez, appear to be pushing hard for the closer.

Chapman is one of the game's most dependable save artists. This season he's saved 21 of 22 opportunities and boasts a 1.65 ERA.
