They reportedly clocked Cincinnati Reds prospect Aroldis Chapman at 105 mph Friday night.
Aroldis Chapman tonight hit 105 mph and “sat at” 103, with a 90-91 slider. Scout: “best fastball I have ever witnessed”
It’s rare for any pitcher to reach 100 mph; Most top out in the low 90s. Perhaps 95 is considered “really fast” for a major leaguer.
Chapman threw 16 pitches — including 11 strikes — and got three swinging strikeouts in his last game.
